Why Gypsum?


Since gypsum is made of a natural material and contains less than 1% organic substance, it is a material which doesn’t harm environment and human health.

Gypsum is the most convenient material for human skin having a pH value (5, 5).

Gypsum quickly absorbs indoor moisture and returns it to the environment when air becomes dry. Therefore, it balances moisture.

Gypsum is fire- retardant since it is classified as “Grade A1 Incombustible” according to European Standards. It protects buildings against fire.

Gypsum provides sound insulation by absorbing sound waves thanks to cavities in its texture.

Gypsum is manufactured with less energy compared to other construction materials (lime, cement…). Therefore, it provides energy savings to national economy.

Gypsum heats in winter season and chills in summer season due to its porous structure. Therefore it contributes to heat insulation.

Gypsum gives a finished and clean view to buildings due to its white color.

Gypsum dries more quickly compared to other classic coating materials and prepares for dying.

Gypsum accommodates very easily to moulds and details when it is mixed with appropriate amount of water, so it takes shape easily.

Gypsum is an ideal material for repair and modification works of old buildings and fractures and texture differences don’t appear between the previous plaster and new plaster.

Gypsum is lighter compared to other classic construction materials (sand, cement, mortar). Thanks to its lightness it decreases load of buildings and provides savings in transportation costs. Furthermore, it saves time since it is applied as a single layer compared to other materials.

Gypsum having a crystal structure transforms into semi- hydrate when it is cooked by loosing three quarter of its water content through a chemical reaction. Powder gypsum transforms into gypsum when it is mixed with water as it is in nature by regaining its water content that it lost during the cooking process.
