POP on granite

Postby sholla » January 4th, 2013, 12:43 pm

My layer is about to put POP on the granite. Saw these very informative
threads on the same topic. Layer is saying that we should not use newspapers
on the granite because if we do this will lead to three times the POP consumption
and POP may come off easily. Floor area is about 700 sq.ft and his estimation
is about 4 bags of 40 kg bags without newspapers. And ofcourse he wants to do
acid wash and buffing at the end. So, is the newspaper usage required ?

what is his recommendation - put it directly on the granite. If that is the case, I would say, tell him to use some alternative protection before putting POP. In our house, even though we used newspaper, there were spots where the paper had slipped or whatever and the POP set on the granite. Even after acid wash, it was hard to remove them. It is going to take a lot of mopping and scraping to remove the set portions.

Thanks, that was helpful. Finally I made him use the newspapers.
Overall it took about four 40 Kg bags.

POP stands for 'Plaster Of Paris'. It is mixed with water to make a slurry and that is applied over the floor. When it dries, it has a layer over which people can move stuff (such as ladders etc. for painting) without causing scratches to the granite. Generally, a layer of plastic sheets or newspaper is put on the floor before pouring the slurry (so that it is easier to remove it when all the work is done).

Can someone let me know the best time to remove the the POP. My painter has completed the putty and in process of polishing the doors and windows. Should the POP be removed now or after painting.

Hi
You can remove POP anytime after all your work is completed and there would be no further major work with cement or paint involved, people usually remove POP before 2 to 3 days of pooja, hope this helps
