What is gypsum?
Gypsum is a natural material, which appeared 100-200 million years ago. Gypsum is a compound of calcium sulfate and water. Due to its good workability properties, and full harmlessness, gypsum is very much used in civil engineering. Ph value of gypsum is equal to the Ph value of human skin; it is odorless and does not contain the substances that might be harmful for health.
Non-inflammability of gypsum
In addition to many other positive properties, gypsum is non-inflammable, which contributes to protection against fire and brings safety to buildings. Plaster slabs, which include many tiny pores, absorb excessive humidity from air and once the air gets dry they return the humidity to it. Since gypsum binds water and water particles, in case of fire, the water in it acts as fire retardant which explains non-inflammable property of gypsum.
Placement of gypsum and dry lining systems
Dry lining systems are more and more used in renovation and construction of residential and commercial buildings. Unlike the old models of construction, these construction systems are very flexible and allow a multiple use. We can freely say that there are no limits in use of gypsum, and through placement of plaster slabs and execution of gypsum works one may create any interior one imagines. A big possibility for combining forms and types of gypsum elements ensures that all wishes and ideas of an employer or an architect may come true. Therefore, we can freely say that gypsum and gypsum works make the interior become just what we imagined.
