SILICOplast is well formulated factory made ready to use Polymerized Drymix Plaster which can be used for External Plastering, Internal Plastering, Ceiling Plastering and as a part of Water Proofing activity.
SILICOplast can be effectively and efficiently used for plastering on Red Clay Bricks, Fly Ash Bricks, Concrete Blocks, AAC Light weight Blocks and other types of Light weight Blocks. It is a cement-based and water-resistant plaster which is ready to use by just adding required quantity of water at site. It is predominantly manufactured for replacement of traditional/conventional site-mixed plaster made of cement and sand, gypsum plaster, stucco plaster or any other premixed/ready-mixed plaster offered in the country. Surface plastered with SILICOplast gives strong even finish on which tiling, painting or Marble/Granite fixing can be done with speed and efficiency.
SILICOplast is manufactured by M/s Precise Conchem Pvt. Ltd., at their plant located at GIDC Panoli, Bharuch District of Gujarat in an automated process according to formulations based on various products studies and research undertaken. The plant is one of the most modern Plants in India, in which all the critical manufacturing processes and operations are completely controlled by P.L.C SYSTEMS (Programmed Logic Controller). The plant has the capacity to produce 25,000 bags @ 40 kg per bag of Polymerized Drymix Mortar/Plaster per day. This plant can be remotely monitored through CCTV cameras installed within the plant area. The company assures, seamless supply of 100% consistent high quality mortars and plasters at all point of times, round the year.Download PDF
SILICOplast is the result of extensive product development through in-house R&D department and tie-ups with various structural consultants. This product has proportionate quantities of Ordinary Portland Cement, Classified & Processed Fly Ash, Purified, Graded and Proportioned River Sand, Hydrated Lime, Performance Enhancing Proprietary Additives, Modified Polypropylene Fibers for achieving better strength & durability as well as other critical functional parameters.
Proper Gradation and Proportioning of sand is done for achieving better product quality in terms of Compactness, Impermeability, Strength and Durability. Stringent Quality Control Procedures are followed in every batch. The company has well-equipped in-house laboratory, where various tests like Compressive Strength Test, Sieve-Analysis Test Water: Cement Ratio Test, etc. are carried out with samples from final product taken from every 2000 bags.
Foreign materials/particles, that may affect adhesion, must be removed. For RCC surface, the surface should be thoroughly cleaned by wire brush so that mould oil, grease, dust, dirt etc. are completely removed. Then the surface should be cleaned/washed with water. A suitable bonding coat is to be applied followed by a layer of chaat (key) coat made up of SILICOplast, for proper adhesion to Concrete. It is important to use Chicken mesh/PRM (Plaster Reinforcement Mesh), at the junction of concrete surfaces and masonry walls. This Chicken mesh should be fixed in such a way that 50% of its width covers the concrete surface and balance 50% of its width covers the masonry wall and the junction is exactly at the centre of the chicken mesh. The initial Plastered Coat should be such that the Chicken mesh/PRM is completely embedded in the plaster.
For surface/substrate made of brick/block masonry walls, the surface should be well saturated/wet with fresh water, prior to application of plaster. All the masonry joints should be properly filled and racked. The substrate on which the SILICOplast is to be applied should be in touch dry condition.
Add 40 kgs of SILICOplast Polymerised Dry Mix Plaster (Powder) to 6.50 litres to 7.00 litres of potable water for one full bag of 40 kg. For ease of mixing, gradually add full quantity of SILICOplast in stages, mixing the powder uniformly with the water.
Mixing manually by hand or in machine should continue until a smooth, lump free & homogenous consistency mixture of SILICOplast is reached. For proper hydration/activation of the dry polymers in SILICOplast, leave the mixture standing for 2 minutes to 3 minutes post mixing. The mixture is ready for use/application. Do not add extra water in the mixture than prescribed above as addition of extra water will lead to loss of strength and create pores.
SILICOplast should be applied within 60 minutes to 90 minutes of its preparation. Ensure that the thickness of single coat/layer does not exceed 13 mm to 15 mm per day. For thicknesses of more than 15 mm, combing of the previous layer of SILICOplast is essential for better bonding of next layer of SILICOplast.
If the substrate is a low-absorption and smooth surface like concrete, a suitable bonding coat is to be applied followed by a layer of chaat (key) coat made up of SILICOplast for proper adhesion to Concrete.
Do not expose SILICOplast bags to direct sunlight, rain/moisture and open air while in storage or at site.
