Plaster of Paris should be stored in a moisture proof container. Explain why?


Answer :

Plaster of Paris (pop) should be stored in a moisture proof container because normally pop is in a powder form but the presence of moisture can cause slow setting of plaster of Paris by bringing about its hydration. After setting it turns into a solid structure which is called Gypsum.This will make the plaster of Paris useless.
