Gypsum is widely used in the building sector, mostly in the form of blocks or boards. These are lightweight building materials composed of solid gypsum and are a preferred solution for interior walls, partition walls, cavity walls, skin walls and pillar casings, as well as for many other indoor applications. Gypsum products are usually made of plaster and water, their manufacturing process being a mostly automated one. The raw material is ground and dried, than it is heated, in order to remove most of the water in it into gypsum plaster, through a process called calcination. Afterwards, the plaster is mixed with water, stirred and poured into molds of the desired shape and size for obtaining blocks or boards. While they are still wet, gypsum products are taken out of the molds and left to dry, before being packaged and transported to different retailers or directly to the construction sites where they will be used.
