Gypsum plastering at Bangalore
Gypsum plasters are apt for high rise buildings
Bangalore is known for skyscrapers, apartments, and high-rise buildings. Gypsum plasters reduce 35% of the plastering weight and so are appropriate for such tall buildings where the main intention of the builder is to reduce the building weight. This in turn increases the resistance of the building to earthquakes, winds, and other natural calamities. This is one reason why gypsum plastering in Bangalore is an appropriate solution as builders are involved in construction of taller, high-rise buildings to cater to a growing population.
Resource consumption is lower
Gypsum plasters consumer lower resources, including water and electricity. Gypsum plasters do not require water curing to settle down unlike cement plasters that require atleast 21 days of water curing. It is important that the water is splashed everyday for 21 days for the cement plaster to settle down slowly, as sudden drying may produce cracks. Gypsum plasters do not require water and so is an apt plastering solution for Metros like Bangalore where water scarcity is dire. Gypsum plasters are proven to save 30 liters of water per sq.ft when compared to cement plasters.
Low cost construction
Builders and construction companies are on a lookout to cement plasters, more so, with surging cement prices post the pandemic. Gypsum plasters reduce around 20% of construction cost or about Rs.35 per sq.ft. when compared to cement plasters.
