What is gypsum?and name the types of gypsum?

 

Gypsum, also called calcium sulfate hydrate, is a mineral found in sedimentary rock. Gypsum is formed by the evaporation and replacement of waters containing sulfate and calcium. Grey or white in color, this amazing mineral can be crushed into fine dust and heated until most of the moisture is eliminated. This process is called calcination, once this process is complete, water is then added to the powder to create a malleable material that can be molded into any shape and will solidify to hold that form. Gypsum can also be added to other raw materials to join them together. Gypsum is a key component in most toothpaste. It is also used in lots of foods including ice cream, canned vegetables, and tofu; as a plaster to create surgical casts; and as a fertilizer, conditioner, and amendment for agricultural application. Gypsum rock is mined or quarried, crushed, or ground into a fine powder. The calcined gypsum becomes the base for gypsum plaster, gypsum boards and other gypsum products.sell gypsum in vornaco international company

Due to its inherent fire resistance, gypsum board, commonly known as drywall is the premier building material for wall, ceiling, and partition systems in residential, institutional, and commercial structures.
