Application Information
Instructions for use

For manual mixing, add to the mixing container 11.5-13 litres of water for each 35 Kg bag of Gypsum Plaster or 450 - 650 Ltr/hr for machine application. Add the powder to the water and mix with a mechanical plaster mixer or low speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 3-4 minutes, until a uniform, lump-free consistency is achieved.
Leave the mixed material to stand for 5 min and briefly remix without addition of water.
Manual mixing is allowed for small batch quantities and mix for approx. 1-2 min or when homogenous mix is achieved.
Smooth Concrete Surfaces
Add 0.5 litres of Vetonit Bond 2 to the mixing water and adjust the water requirement accordingly for each 35kg bag. Follow same mixing procedure as above.
Spatter dash SB should be applied prior the application on smooth surfaces if Saveto bond 2 not in use.
Mixed material must be used within 30 minute. Do not add water once the mixed plaster mortar start to stiffen or hardened.

Gypsum Plaster is generally applied in a single coat method. Use directly on block walls & rough surfaces. On smooth concrete surfaces, Spatter Dash SB layer should be applied before or add 0.5 liters of Vetonit Bond2 for each bag of Gypsum Plaster.
Apply mixed material using spray machine or trowel technique to cover the area to desired thickness. Lightweight leveling tools are required in conjunction with trowel to fill in holes.
When the plaster stiffens lightly, treat the surface to a smooth level to eliminate all traces of protrusions and undulations.
Let the plaster set for about 30 min., using wet sponge, wipe the surface to a creamy smooth finish.

Let the Gypsum Plaster to fully dry itself. Do not use water.
Paints & Coatings can be applied once the plaster has dried out completely, generally after 7 days.

Surface Preparation

Substrate should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc .Prior to Gypsum Plaster application, wet the entire surfaces with clean potable water and allow to dry prior to Plaster Gypsum application.

  • Do not mix with any additives or products, unless recommended by Saveto.
  • Make sure the substrate is suitable for plaster coat application. In case of doubt, try on sample area to assess its suitability.
  • Do not apply the product at temperature less than +5ºC.
  • During summer season the working area must be covered to prevent ill-effects from direct sun and also excessive air-draught during initial curing stage.
  • Tools should be cleaned with water before the mortar hardens. After the hardening its residuals can be removed mechanically only.
  • For further information contact our technical department.
