Cement is a crucial element in the construction industry. It is needed to join bricks and make a wall stand upright, as well as to plaster the wall and give it a smooth finish.  Traditionally, cement and sand were ordered separately and were mixed together on-site to form plaster. It did the job but the process was time-consuming, messy and labor-intensive. Thus, it isn’t surprising to note that most construction projects have shifted to working with ready mix plaster instead of sand cement.

Ready-mix plaster is premixed that must simply be combined with water to make plaster slurry. Thus, it eliminates the need for on-site mixing. Since the mix is formulated in a factory, the ratio of its different components is kept consistent and a higher quality standard can be achieved. Unlike sand used in traditional sand cement, this plaster is also available throughout the year.

There are a number of other advantages that Ready mix plaster offers. As compared to traditional plaster, it has negligible silt content. This, along with added polymers, makes the plaster more durable and prevents cracks while controlling shrinkage. Ready-mix mortar for plastering is also stronger and more compact. Apart from giving the wall a smoother finish, the polymer additives also reduce capillary action, thus improving the plaster’s water-resistant properties.

For the construction team, working with ready mix mortar is easier. Instead of working with multiple components, now, only a single product is needed. This saves on transportation costs, warehousing costs and labor costs. Since the process of mixing this plaster with water and applying it is quick, it reduces project timelines as well.

Magicrete’s MagicPlast

MagicPlast is a ready mix plaster and fiber-reinforced plaster formulated by Magicrete. It is ready to use a polymer-modified plaster that contains silt-free graded sand and special additives. The plaster boasts of high strength, crack resistance and acts as a water barrier. It has a 1.5-2 hour pot life and reduced rebounding losses that allow easy and fast application. The mineral binders in the plaster reduce its density and thus increase the coverage. In short, it is stronger, more durable, easier to use and more economical than traditional plaster.
