Gypsum-based Indian Gypsum Plaster is a lightweight plaster that can be applied to most interior surfaces, including brick, block, and concrete.
- Faster setting time than cement plaster
- 50% lighter than sand cement plaster; reduces structural load on building.
- Can apply directly on bricks, blocks, RCC & sand cement surface.
- No water curing required.

|Whiteness||> 65 %|
|Fineness (150 Micron)||< 5.0 %|
|Setting time||8 - 25 minutes|
|Density||0.9 -1.1 g/ml|
- Clean loose particles, dirt, grease, and traces of adhering material from the wall surface with the help of sandpaper, putty blade or by wire brush. Pre-wet the surface before application to achieve good workability and higher coverage.
- Mix Gypsum Plaster (Silver)to water and not water to powder. Water to plaster ratio should be (1 part of water and 1.5 part of Gypsum Plaster (Silver)to be maintained to provide a good cohesive workable mix.)
- Mix Gypsum Plaster (Silver)to water with the help of hand to form a uniform lump free paste.
- Install the wooden strip/dhada or install the levelling strip in the area where the paste needs to be applied.
- Apply the 1st coat approx. up to 10 mm to 12 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. Before levelling wait for 5-10 minutes for initial set, then apply the final finish coat.
- Level the surface by using aluminum level patty.
- After complete drying for usually 72 hrs. (Depending on the thickness and humidity), the plain smooth levelled surface is ready for painting application.
- Use the material instantly after mixing.
- Once the mix has begun to set, additional dry material should not be added, as performance properties of plaster will get altered, thus affecting workability, cohesiveness, adhesion, and strength.
- A single coat should not exceed more than 8 mm to 10 mm of thickness.
- The surface on which the material needs to be applied should be levelled and pre-wet properly.
- Gypsum Plaster (Silver)should not be applied on surface which is subjected continuous seepage or dampness.

Ans- Gypsum Plaster (Silver) is light weight gypsum-based plaster suitable for application on most internal surfaces including brick, block, and concrete.
Ans- Difference between gypsum silver plaster and cement plaster
- Gypsum silver plaster, on the other hand, may only be used on the ceiling and interior walls and cannot be used in wet places such as toilets, baths, kitchens, washrooms, balconies, and so on, In Cement plaster can be used in exterior and interior surfaces.
- Gypsum silver plaster is an anti-fungus plaster that is unaffected by insects, In Cement plaster is not regarded to be free of fungi, mildew, and other contaminants.
- Gypsum silver plaster may be applied to both smooth and uneven surfaces, In Smooth surfaces cannot be painted with cement plaster.
- Whereas gypsum silver plaster has a very smooth texture that makes it paintable, In The surface of cement plaster is rough.
- Wastage is minimal during the application of gypsum silver plaster, In Plaster waste is common during the application of cement.
- Because of its strong tensile and flexural strength, gypsum silver plaster helps resist shrinking, In Because of its low tensile hand fractural and strength, cement plaster can shrink.
- Curing is not necessary in the case of gypsum silver plaster, In Pre-curing and post-curing are necessary for cement plaster.
- However, in the event of a fire, gypsum silver plaster functions as a barrier, protecting the blockwork, concrete, and steel, In When exposed to fire, cement plaster becomes brittle, splits, and loses its link with the wall.
- Whereas gypsum silver plaster is a green building material, In Cement plaster is not a sustainable building material.
- However, because gypsum silver plaster does not need to be kept, we may apply the paint directly, In In the case of cement plaster, pop punning on the plastered surface is required to receive paint.
Ans- Benefit of gypsum silver plastering
- Faster setting than the conventional sand cement plaster
- Reduce structural load on building as it is 50% lighter than sand cement plaster
- Direct application on Bricks, Blocks, RCC & Sand cement surface
- No water curing required
Ans- When compared to cement plaster, gypsum provides a better finish. However, it is best to utilise gypsum plaster for interior walls and ceilings and cement plaster for the building's exteriors.
