Gypsum wall plastering replaces sand-cement mortar plaster and POP punning by single application directly on masonry surfaces.
Why Gypsum is the worlds sustainable plaster
Gypsum is a sustainable environment friendly alternative to cement sand plastering. Water is mixed to gypsum plaster and applied on masonry substrates to provide the ultra finish that is needed. Gypsum plastering combines plastering and putty in to one process making it a faster construction process.
Kanish Construction is a leading Gypsum plaster company in India undertakes plastering contracting including all major builders and promoters. Our stringent quality and site project management makes as the first choice for major builders.
Our internal process towards quality and workmanship makes us unique and the trusted partner for all construction projects.
Gypsum is a naturally occurring mineral found as deposits around the world. It is mined, processed and packed in powdered form to apply as gypsum plaster.
Gypsum application is a very simple process, gypsum powder is mixed with water in a particular ratio and applied on the wall. The plaster is then completed to have adequate smooth finish. Gypsum plastering simplifies construction and enables faster construction timelines.
Gypsum has several inherent advantages over cement. First consistent quality and consistency is achievable in gypsum whereas it is not achievable in cement sand plaster. Second gypsum is a naturally occurring mineral while cement is manufactured. Gypsum is in use since centuries (from Egyptian Pyramid days) whereas cement has become a construction material in past few decades.
Gypsum wasn’t widely used in India till river sand was easily available. With ban of river sand across India, gypsum has become a preferred plastering material. Gypsum provides quality and consistency which is not achievable using manufactured sand.
Plaster of Paris (PoP) can be moulded into different shapes when it is moistened, but gypsum does not have that property. Gypsum is a naturally occurring mineral whereas Plaster of Paris is manufactured. POP is obtained by pulverizing gypsum. POP is used for making shapes and statue and not for wall application.
Gypsum plaster absorbs water and becomes soft, when it is continuously exposed to water. Hence gypsum is not applied to areas where water is in continuous contact – like exterior, bathroom walls, car wash areas etc.
Gypsum boards and plasters are are most commonly used in construction across USA and Europe since many decades. It is getting widespread acceptance in India in this decade.
In the latest study KCC team did, gypsum plaster is 30% cheaper than cement-sand plaster per sq feet. The BOQ rates for cement sand plaster and gypsum has also shown this price difference and hence major builders have adopted gypsum.
Kanish Construction Company (KCC) is a turnkey applicator of gypsum. We do contracting at sq.foot basis that includes materials, application service, project management and quality control. We also apply any brand gypsum as per client needs.
Gypsum plaster quality varies on multiple factors, starting from choosing the right gypsum, mixing water in right ratio for base and finish coat, optimal screed determines gypsum thickness, applying right sized mesh at required locations, hacking and bonding on required areas, giving suitable time between bond and gypsum application, phasing out base and finish coat application and the list goes on and on.
Achieving quality gypsum plaster requires combination of art, science, workmanship and quality check at every step.
Over the years KCC has conducted research and consulted with several experts to determine what good is. Our understanding of gypsum chemistry and KCC staff members living the quality values makes us unbeatable in the market. Our daily, weekly and monthly quality checks help achieve the best.
We are proud of our output and we stand by it.
