In today’s post, we will be discussing about the production of gypsum boards.

What Is Gypsum Board ? 

Gypsum board differs from other building products due to its non-combustible core and paper facers. For instance plywood, hardboard and fiberboard. Discover the benefits and advantages of choosing plasterboards by reading our related article “Why gypsum board ?“. 

Production Of Gypsum Board: How Do We Produce ?

Firstly, production is made of calcined plaster mineral. Then, we add water and mix it with other chemicals. This enable us to obtain a slurry compound. According to its type or use, plasterboard is reinforced with fibers. In fact, the purpose is to provide resistance against fire and humidity.

Secondly, for the preparation of necessary raw materials, the compound is pours down over a conveyer line. In other words, it gets bounded between continuous papers at front and back side. Which means that back side of the board is covered with kraft paper.

For example, white paper is used for regular, green for moisture whereas red for fire resistant board

Then, we have the drying stage. After that, gypsum board is shaped either as square or tapered edge and cut as per clients demand from 2000 to 3600mm.

To finish, as a last stage, gypsum boards get palletized by protection sheets at 4 sides and are prepared for delivery.
