Gypsum makes life easier.
Gypsum is a natural material.
Gypsum stone that has a crystalline structure loses three fourth of its water with a chemical reaction during cooking and becomes a half-hydrate. When gypsum powder is mixed with water, it takes the water back, which it had lost during cooking, and becomes a natural gypsum stone again.
Since gypsum is produced from a natural material and includes organic substance less than 1 %, it a material that causes no harm to the environment and human health.
Gypsum is a material with a pH value (5,5) that utmost conforms with human skin.
It absorbs the humidity generated in internal areas quickly and returns it back to the environment when it gets dry. Therefore, it compensates the humidity.
Since gypsum in included in Class “A1 – Not burnable” in accordance with the European Standards, it prevents fire. It protects buildings against fire.
Gypsum is an ideal material for repairs and modifications of old buildings and there are no cracks and texture differences between the old and new plasters.
If gypsum is mixed with an appropriate amount of water, it adopts easily to the molds and details, it will therefore easily be formed.
Due to the pores in its structure, gypsum absorbs the sound waves and insulates noise.
Gypsum give the buildings a finished and clean image due to its white color.
Gypsum is lighter than other classical construction material (sand, cement, lime mixture mortars). Due to its lightness, the load of the buildings is decreased and transport costs will be spared. Further, it saves time in comparison to these material, since it will be applied in one single layer.
Gypsum will be produced with less energy in comparison with other construction material. (Lime, cement,….) Therefore, it provides energy sparing for the domestic economy.
Due to its structure with pores, gypsum causes that the winter is felt warmer and the summer is felt colder. Therefore, it contributes to heat insulation.
Gypsum dries quicker than other classical plaster material and becomes ready for painting.
