We have divided our Infrastructure into the following units:
  • Manufacturing Unit
  • Quality & Control Unit
  • R & D Unit

MANUFACTURING
PROCESS

  • The process for production of plaster of Paris consists of the following operations:
    • Quarrying & Storage of Gypsum
    • Calcinations
    • Grinding of gypsum
    • Heating in the iron retort
    • Grinding
    • Packaging

  1. Firstly, Gypsum or calcium sulphate dehydrate is quarried from the quarry & then the raw material gypsum is sorted and washed with water for removal of sand and other impurities.
  2. The lumps thus obtained are then dried and powdered in pulverizer. The dried gypsum powder is calcined in a rotary drumcalciner using Coal as fuel.
  3. The low pressure burner is used for calcination at a temperature of 160ºC to 180ºC.
  4. The process of calcination is done over a period of about 2 hours, so that one and half molecules of water is removed to convert the gypsum (CaSO4.2H2O) into plaster of paris (CaSO4.1/2 H2O).
  5. After cooling, the product (plaster of paris) is further pulverised to a fineness of 200 mesh.
  6. At last, the product obtained (i.e. Plaster of Paris) is packed in air tight polythene lined gunny bags of 20kg, 25kg & 40kg to avoid the plaster of paris from absorption of moisture.

  • Large cracks should be filled by mixing cement and sand in the ratio 1:3.
  • Damp the surface to be plastered with clean water. Allow excess water to drain off.

  • Application Details:
  • On the prepared surface apply one coat of Primer.
  • After drying, sand lightly and apply Orchid Wall Putty using aputty applicator to obtain smooth and uniform surface.

  • Prepare plaster by mixing 4 Liters of water per every 25 kg bag of Bikana Ready-Mix Gypsum Plaster.
  • Mixing should be done for 5-10 minutes, depending upon the speed of the mixing equipment.
  • When the mixture is prepared, leave it for 4 to 5 minutes and mix it again.
  • Before application, now add water to the mixture.
