No, plaster of Paris and white cement are not the same. Plaster of Paris is a porous material that will disintegrate outside in the rain. White cement is more durable and should last outside in the rain.
The difference between plaster of Paris and ceramic powder is what is in them. Plaster of Paris is made up of gypsum and dries to a hard matte finish. Ceramic powder is made from zirconium oxide and dries to a hard finish.
Plaster of Paris is a TYPE of calcium sulfate that when mixed with water forms a soild that can be moulded, calcium sulfate is the white powder used to make plaster, and other items.
First you need to recognize that "plaster" is not a singularly defined material; it is a family of quite different materials that harden by different mechanisms. The three most common plasters are (1) Plaster of Paris, (2) Lime Plaster, and (3) Cement Plaster.(1) Plaster of Paris is CaSO4.H2O, a partially-dehydrated form of Gypsum, which is a hydrated Calcium Sulfate crystal CaSO4.2H2O. When Plaster of Paris is mixed with water, it re-hydrates and turns back into Gypsum, which then hardens into a material similar to mortar or concrete but considerably softer. Water is the material that makes Plaster of Paris harden.(2) Limestone When exposed to atmosphere the Calcium hydroxide turns back to limestone, causing the plaster to set.(3) Cement Plaster is a mixture of Portland Cement powder, sand or other filler, water, and either Plaster of Paris or Lime Plaster. Due to the great variety of minerals that makeup Portland Cement and Cement Plaster, the hardening is a complex process that cannot be ascribed to the action of any one of the ingredients.
