READY MIX PLASTER


Mega Crete ReadyMix Plaster

Instant Plastering Mega Crete Ready-Mix Plaster is manufactured in modern dry mix plant with computerised batch process.

Plaster is ready to use by just mixing water at site. This process eliminates job-site mixing practices. Hence it gives consistent quality with required sand mesh sizes in exact proportion which is most important for compactness of plaster.

Further to have desired workability, less rebounding losses, required slump properties and overall durability, polymers are added in Mega Crete Ready-Mix Plaster.

What is plastering? Plastering is the process of covering rough surface of wall, column, ceiling and other parts of the building with thin coat of mortars to form a smooth, hard and durable surface capable of protecting external surface against penetration of rain water and other atmospheric vagaries.

A good plaster needs to have strong adhesion on wall and ceiling with excellent water resistant, crack free and work ability properties that will protect the interior, provide flat base for painting, minimise the inconvenience of maintenance and speed up the construction. Therefore, in many ways, Plastering is as critical as structural members, brickwork, flooring, etc.

 



Details


  • Compact plaster, reduce void gaps
  • Negligible silt content
  • Reduces rebounding
  • Highly durable plaster that cuts repair the maintenance cost
  • Excellent work ability and good adhesion on various substrate
  • Paint finish and life of paint are enhanced

Application Procedure


  • The substrate needs to be cleaned and made free from grease and loose particles. The porous and absorbent substrates need to be pre-wetted prior to application of Mega Crete Ready-Mix Plaster to prevent premature loss of water from the plaster. This will ensure that thin layer can be applied without cracking problems and proper cement hydration and adherence of the mortar to the substrate is attained. Use 7-8 liters of water for 40 kg Mega Crete Ready-Mix Plaster. Pour the Mega Crete Ready-Mix Plaster while mixing for 4 -5 minutes with hand or still better with a mechanical mixer to achieve a good consistency. Do not over mix. Allow mixture to stand for 2-3 minutes for additives to dissolve. Re-mix again for about 2 minutes, plaster is ready for use. Apply plaster to the substrate, using some pressure while finishing with a steel trowel or wooden float to ensure optimum bonding of the plaster to the substrate surface. Mega Crete Ready-Mix Plaster can be used for interior as well as exterior wall.
