What is a Gypsum Board?
Gypsum board is a lightweight construction material which is often called drywall, wallboard, and plasterboard, and can be directly attached to wood and metal framing. It comprises gypsum, which is a hydrous sulfate of calcium and is sandwiched between two layers of special paper. It can be directly attached to existing surfaces or walls of buildings with the help of strong adhesives, screws, and nails. It is manufactured by grinding and crushing gypsum into calcined or partially dehydrated gypsum and then mixing it with water and other additives to create a slurry which is poured between continuous layers of paper on a board-forming machine. It is commercially available as fire-resistant and water-resistant gypsum boards, which are primarily used in bathrooms, kitchens, and external soffits. It has a non-combustible core which makes it different from plywood, fireboard, and hardboard. It is extremely versatile and can complement the aesthetics of any interior design. It is used for making walls and partitions in various residential, commercial, and institutional structures, as it possesses fire-resistant properties and can prevent the occurrence of accidents. It is used for making false ceilings and cladding the exterior of residential and non-residential buildings. It is also employed in the construction of offices, recording studios, and classrooms, as fiber board contains sufficient mass to inhibit most low-frequency sound waves and has enough resiliency to inhibit sound waves of higher frequency. As it is convenient to use and is more durable in nature compared to traditional lath and plaster, the demand for gypsum board is rising across the globe.
Gypsum Board Market Trends:
At present, the increasing demand for gypsum boards due to the rising construction of various residential and commercial buildings around the world represents one of the key factors influencing the market positively.
