Gold Bond® Gypsolite® Plaster

GypsoliteDescription

Gold Bond® BRAND Gypsolite® is a lightweight gypsum basecoat plaster mixed at the plant with correctly sized and proportioned perlite aggregate, requiring only the addition of water on the job.

Basic Uses

Gypsolite Plaster is manufactured to be trowel applied as a basecoat over gypsum or metal lath.

It is a basecoat plaster for finish plasters such as:

  • Gold Bond BRAND Kal-Kote Smooth Finish
  • Gold Bond BRAND Kal-Kote Texture Finish
  • Gold Bond BRAND Uni-Kal
  • Gold Bond BRAND X-KALibur
  • Job gauged lime putty

Advantages

  • Uniform Strength and Hardness. Uniformity is assured through exact proportioning and thorough mixing of graded perlite and gypsum plaster at the mill. Gypsolite provides a uniform base for the finish coat.
  • Lightweight. Gypsolite weighs less than half as much as sanded gypsum plaster, thus reducing the dead-load on framing.
  • High Insulating Value. With a "k" factor of 1.5, Gypsolite provides about 3 1/2 times the insulating value of sanded plaster.
  • Fire Resistance. Gypsolite has excellent fire-resistive qualities and generally provides fire ratings higher than sanded plaster.
