USG - USG Gypsum Plaster Accelerator

 

 

 

             

 

PRODUCT FEATURES 

USG Accelerators reduce the setting times for gypsum plaster and setting-type joint compounds. Adding them to the mix causes gypsum crystals to form at a much faster rate, speeding up the setting process. 

The safe and easy-to-use accelerators are available in a variety of strengths: 

  • USG Standard Strength Gypsum Plaster Accelerator reduces set times by 10 to 30 minutes. 
  • USG High Strength Gypsum Accelerator reduces the set time for plaster by 30 minutes to two hours and for setting-type joint compounds by 10 to 40 minutes.
  • USG Accelerator—Alum Catalyst helps correct plaster dry-out conditions. It may also be used to treat sun-faded.
  • IMPERIAL® Gypsum Base before applying a plaster that contains lime. It can be used in machine applications of IMPERIAL® Basecoat Machine Application Plaster.
