Topic: Gypsum Plaster Vs S/C Plaster

Dear Members,
We have been given a choice of selecting right plastering solution between:
A) Gyproc Plastering (from Saint Gobin)
B) Normal Sand and Cement Plastering followed by POP.
I will be pleased to know expert opinion which mode of plaster we should choose.
To give you a background, it's our residential property with an area of 250 Sq Yd; where we are constructing four floors with a stilt.
I tried looking on net, but I haven't come across with any technical research between two; however, few old citations have recommended Gypsum based plastering over S/C plaster.
Your recommendations and suggestions will be of great help.
With regards,
Tarun Jain

Go for option B) Normal Sand and Cement Plastering followed by POP.
A) Gyproc Plastering (from Saint Gobin) is used for commercial purpose where you require re-modeling after few years.

Dear Trun
Advantage
   
  • Gypsum plaster is directly applied on brick, block or RCC, no separate finishing product required.
  • It requires no curing, therefore ready to paint.
  • Gypsum plaster saves time during construction and ensures timely possession of homes/ building.
  • Gypsum plaster expands slightly on setting and is not, therefore likely to cause cracking of surface.
  • On drying out it forms a sufficient dense surface to resist normal knocks.
  • Gypsum plaster is comparatively easy to spread and level.
  • Gypsum plasters have no appreciable chemical action on paint.
  • Gypsum plaster spread and finished to a minimum thickness increasing carpet area.
  • Gypsum plaster is perfectly lined, leveled, sharp corner and smooth surface.
  • Saving on electricity used for air conditioning as gypsum has very low thermal conductivity.
  • It is more durable and green material.
  • Gypsum plaster light in weight, therefore reduces the load on structure.
  • More cleanliness on site because it is bag packed product and no curing is required.
  • Disadvantages of Gypsum Plaster

    • Gypsum plaster is not suitable for exterior finish, as it can not be used in damp situations.
    • Gypsum plaster is more expensive than cement sand plaster but cost disadvantages should be weighed against the advantages and the fact that the labor cost is appreciably greater than that of materials in plastering.
    • Cement plaster add structurally strength to the wall but not in case of Gypsum plaster.
