Application Procedure

Remove all the loose adhering particles from the surface by using wire brush and potable water. Pre - wet the surface before application to achieve good work ability and higher coverage.

Mix powder to water and not water to powder. Water to plaster ratio is (1 part water and 1.5 part of BuildWell gypsum plaster (GYP+) to be maintained to provide good cohesive workable mix. Mix BuildWell gypsum plaster (GYP+) to water by using electrical hand mixture rod to form uniform lump free paste, install the wooden strip / dhada or install the leveling strip in the area where the ready paste is to be applied. Apply the first coat approx. upto 8 mm to 10 mm of thickness, before the first coat sets rake and cross rake the surface. Fill in any hollow area, Level off and compact the surface, then apply the final finish coat. After complete drying for usually 72 hrs. (Depending on the thickness and humidity), the plain smooth leveled surface is ready for painting application.

Once the mix has begun to set, additional dry material should not be added, as performance properties of plaster will get altered, thus affecting work ability, cohesiveness, adhesion and strength. A single coat should not exceed more than 8 mm to 10 mm of thickness. If at all thickness required is more than 8 mm to 10 mm, then plaster is to be applied in multiple coats. Use the material instantly after mixing. The surface on which the material needs to be applied should be in line and levelled. BuildWell Gypsum plaster (GYP +) should not be applied on surface which is subjected continuous seepage or dampness.
