Gypsum is an evaporite mineral most commonly found in stratified sedimentary deposits in association with halite, anhydrite, sulphur, calcite, and dolomite.
Gypsum is very similar to Anhydrite. The chemical difference is that gypsum contains two water and anhydrite is waterless. Gypsum is the most common sulfate mineral.
Gypsum uses include making cement board, plaster of Paris, soil amendment a hardening retarder in Portland cement. Gypsum varieties known as ‘satin’ and ‘alabaster’ are used for various ornamental purposes; however, their low hardness limits their durability.
What do you know about the uses of gypsum in different industries?
From plastering and whitewashing to micronized types that are used in delicate and medical industries, the degree of purification, crushing and screening of the raw material of this material are very different.
Also, separate chemical processes are used in these stages, which greatly affect the quality and price of the final product.
Depending on the type of application of gypsum, some of these items are highlighted and the importance of others is reduced.
For example, in sculpture, this material with a high degree of plasticity is needed.
While successful masonry depends on using a product with higher strength.
In normal and common uses, the right price is usually the first priority in the preparation of this material.
