Plaster of Paris

Plaster of Paris, quick-setting gypsum plaster consisting of a fine white powder (calcium sulfate hemihydrate), which hardens when moistened and allowed to dry. Known since ancient times, plaster of paris is so called because of its preparation from the abundant gypsum found near Paris.

Plaster of paris is a building material used for the protective and/or decorative coating of walls and ceilings and for moulding and casting decorative elements. Plaster of paris does not generally shrink or crack when dry, making it an excellent medium for casting molds.
