We all know that human can live with comfort at a temperature between 20-25°C, but here in India specially in North we have summer for more than 8 months and winter in remaining 4 months. But unfortunately all our present building material like steel, cement, stone dust and pucca bricks are good conductor of heat, resulting our building absorb heat in summer days and release it at night which is our sleeping time and vice-versa in winter. Our building becomes heated chamber in summers and chilled cave in winters.
Presently we don’t use any thermal insulator in our building. To fill this gap and to correct this error in our modern building materials and technology we are introducing Vedic Plaster, which is a gypsum based cow dung plaster with some miner additives. We all know gypsum and cow dung are cheaper and best thermal Insulator and human used it in houses from time unknown. Gypsum has been used in pyramids and ancient churches and has life in thousands years. We used cow dung in form as compost, as fuel in kitchen add to make some religious symbols in Hoika Dahan, what was the reason we plastered our wall and floor with cow dung. The answer is below:
Progress of human being is directly related to progress of cows and other cattle. We have to attach cow again with modern economy. Think again why our ancestors lived in cottages plastered with cow dung. Cow dung is cheapest and best thermal insulator, enzymes present in cow dung are good binder, cow dung has antiseptic properties and also prevents from radiations. Cement concrete has completely eliminated cow dung from our buildings. Cow dung also prevents damage to plaster due to salts and humidity. No civil engineer, architect or interior designer will tell you this because they’re not taught about cow dung.
“Buildings across the globe consume 60-70% of the total energy generated and are a major contributor to the greenhouse gases. The maximum share of this energy usage is in conditioning (heating or cooling) the building interiors. In India, which has a tropical climate, insulation of building envelope would result in major energy saving and minimizing the greenhouse gas emissions which would contribute to a green and sustainable development.” Vedic Plaster is a gypsum based Cow Dung plaster which insulate building. So use Vedic Plaster to save electricity and environment and help to protect our climate.
It is a ready mix plaster. You have to just make paste of it by using soft water and apply on bare wall. No need of cement plaster or wall putty. Any skilled person who knows how to apply plaster of paris can apply this plaster with a little training.
