Enhance thickening and workability with EXCELCON Series
Nowadays, gypsum plaster is getting more popular due to its various advantages over the cement mortars. It has excellent insulation properties for both thermal and acoustic. It also provides fire retardation property, protection from moisture and vapor. Using gypsum plaster in the construction can reduce the curing time which aids in faster construction. Gypsum production generates less CO2 emission than cement since the calcination is occurring at a lower temperature. The source of gypsum can be mined from the natural or using the by-product from other industries e.g. FGD from the power plant or Phosphogypsum from the fertilizer industry. The ratio between natural gypsum and synthetic gypsum is about 50:50.

Major products of gypsum plaster are machine spray plaster, hand-applied plaster and skim coat for the interior decorative application. Workability is very important to the plaster since it will reflect on the speed of work and quality of the finished work.

SMS offers the starch ether “EXCELCON” to adjust the workability of gypsum plaster in each application as EXCELCON 300 for gypsum skim coat.
