Gypsum is a rock like sedimentary mineral it’s found in the earth crust, extracted, processed and used by man in construction work. Gypsum is composed of calcium sulphate and water. Gypsum is an evaporate mineral,…

Concrete and block/brick junction treatment before plastering

  The G I mesh is fixed at the block work and concrete structure junction to avoid formation of cracks during temperature variation due to difference in thermal expansion of these materials. Due to different coefficients of thermal expansion for Concrete and block masonry, cracks may develop in the plaster at the junctions. Galvanized Iron…

Plaster Cracks

Cracks can occur due to chemical reaction in construction materials, changes in temperature and climate, foundation movements and settling of buildings, earthquake, etc. also faulty design bad quality materials, wrong method of construction, weather effects and lots of wear and tear can create crack in walls, floors and ceilings. Classification: Structural cracks Due to poor…

Most of our concrete surfaces are smooth in nature. These smooth surfaces are not suitable for further masonry works – Block work & Plastering. We need to prepare these surfaces such a way that the bonding between concrete and upcoming mortar is optimum. The same can be achieved by Hacking process or by Chemical treatments. In this…

Functions of mortar in concrete block masonry

The Masonry is built with blocks and mortar. The primary function of a masonry is to withstand load & transfer it safely. Stability and strength of a masonry depends on following factors, 1. Quality of materials (Blocks & Mortar) 2. Laying pattern of blocks 3. Workmanship When it comes to the quality of materials, we…

GI Corner beads for Plastering

Plastering around wall edges are weaker than the plain walls. Also chances of these edges getting damaged by movement of materials during construction or household items after occupation are higher. So we need to reinforce these edges using GI Corner beads. These Corner beads comes in ‘V’ shape with length varies from 1.8m to 2.1m,…
