Plaster is a soft, white powder obtained from gypsum
Plaster is a soft, white powder obtained from gypsum

Plaster is a soft, white powder obtained from Gypsum. This material is obtained directly from Plaster and no additives are used in its production. For information about the price of this product, refer to the price section of Construction materials or plaster. The plasters used for construction purposes are as follows: 

Whitewash plaster: The price of whitewash plaster is very reasonable. This plaster is used to cover the surface and whitewash the walls, and its color is completely white. 

Micronized Plaster: This Plaster is produced from ordinary Plaster processing. Micronized Plaster is used for plastering, whitewashing and molding. In other words, it used for rendering, floating and finishing coats. 

Ivory Plaster: Ivory Plaster has a very fine granulation and its setting time is long. This material is used to kill the building and make prefabricated Plaster panels. 

Gipton Plaster: The adhesion of this type of Plaster is higher than other Plasters. This plaster can be applied on a variety of surfaces such as concrete blocks, foam surfaces and porous concrete surfaces. 

Siwa Plaster: This Plaster has good resistance to moisture and prevents heat and sound transfer. Siwa Plaster is obtained by combining micronized Plaster with other additives. This type of plaster is very suitable for underlayment. Plaster is one of the fast materials and it is used for making mortar, whitewashing the roof and walls of buildings, making prefabricated panels and decorative elements.

It is majorly used for plastering purposes, for moulding of sculptures and as fertiliser . Plaster of Paris is made by heating gypsum to high temperatures ranging from 120 to 180 degrees celsius. When water is added, the Plaster of Paris turns back into its previous form, i. Gypsum plaster can be applied on almost any surface and applied directly on walls . Gypsum plaster has high durability and is light in weight. Gypsum plaster can be used on walls without the hassle of spoiling the surface. Gypsum plaster has high resistance to extreme temperature conditions and is also fire-resistant. Gypsum plaster can be directly applied onto concrete surfaces, bricks, blocks and for other construction activities. Compared to conventional materials, gypsum plaster requires around half an hour or less to set on the walls. Since the plaster has to be dried up completely, the walls can be painted 72 hours after the plaster has been set. Gypsum plaster does not require water for curing unlike conventional plaster used for cementing and hence, the process is finished quickly without the usage of water. Gypsum plaster can be moulded into different shapes and sizes therefore, it is useful in interior design and similar applications. Cement plaster requires careful observance to ensure that the materials are mixed in proportion however, the same is not the case with gypsum plaster which does not require as many quality checks to assure its standard. Gypsum Plaster is costlier than conventional cement mortar plaster that constitutes of sand and cement. In areas where sand is not permitted for usage, gypsum plaster has to substitute for the lack of sand and this would increase the overall cost for construction. Gypsum plaster is not resistant to moisture and hence, cannot be used for outdoor applications. Gypsum plaster is not resistant to dampness and hence, should be stored away from any surface in contact with water.
