What is Gypsum used for?

Gypsum work refers to the use of gypsum as a building material in construction. Gypsum is a soft, white or grayish mineral that is composed of hydrated calcium sulfate. It is commonly used as a plaster for covering walls and ceilings, and is also used to make drywall and other building materials.

In construction, gypsum work typically involves using gypsum-based products to create or finish walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. For example, gypsum plaster is often used to create smooth, even surfaces on walls and ceilings, and can be used in a variety of finishes, including smooth, textured, or patterned. Gypsum drywall, which is made by sandwiching a layer of gypsum between two sheets of paper, is commonly used to construct walls and ceilings. It is easy to cut and install, and can be finished with paint or wallpaper.

Gypsum work is popular in construction because it is relatively lightweight, easy to work with, and fire-resistant. It is also an environmentally friendly building material, as it can be recycled and is not harmful to the environment. However, gypsum products are susceptible to moisture damage, so it is important to properly seal and finish gypsum surfaces in damp or humid environments.
