Enhance your soil, improve your harvest with ATTPL Stone's gypsum

Welcome to ATTPL Stone's page on gypsum, a mineral with a variety of industrial and construction applications.

Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with the chemical formula CaSO4·2H2O. It is widely used as a fertilizer, soil conditioner, and as a main constituent in many forms of plaster, blackboard chalk, and drywall. Gypsum is also commonly used in the construction industry as a bonding agent in concrete and as a filler material in cement.

Gypsum - the natural solution for fire resistance and soil enhancement.

One of the main advantages of using gypsum in construction is its fire-resistant properties. Gypsum has a low thermal conductivity, meaning it does not conduct heat very well. This makes it an ideal material for use in fire-resistant building materials. In addition, gypsum is a natural sound absorber, making it useful in reducing noise pollution in buildings.

Another benefit of using gypsum in agriculture is its ability to improve soil structure and water-holding capacity. Gypsum helps to break up compacted soil and provides a source of calcium and sulfur, essential nutrients for plant growth. It also helps to reduce soil erosion and can be used to reclaim salt-affected soils.

Gypsum can be found in a variety of forms, including raw gypsum, which is mined from natural deposits, and synthetic gypsum, which is produced as a by-product of various industrial processes. The most common form of gypsum used in construction is plasterboard or drywall, which is made by sandwiching a layer of gypsum between two sheets of paper.
