Free from odor, white Gypsum Powder is available in monoclinic crystalline powder form. It is naturally present in limestone, saline lake and sedimentary rock located in dry atmospheric regions. Solid white gypsum powder is hygroscopic by nature. This powder based chemical is used to manufacture gypsum board, paint and gypsum block. Free from impurities, this powder has unique strength, excellent wear resistance properties, high fluidity level and powerful simulation effect. Good hardness level is one of its main factors. Light in weight, this non toxic grade chemical can endure fluctuation in temperature. Good insulation properties and minimal demolding period are its key factors.
Advanced autoclave boiling technology is used for its formulation. Solid white gypsum powder is composed of hydrous calcium sulfate. To be precise, it is produced as the byproduct of desulfurization of flue gas in coal fired power generation plants.
