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
  • 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
