Gypboard Plain plasterboard is a standard gypsum board consisting of an aerated gypsum core encased in and firmly bonded to, strong paper liner. Gypsum board is a panel made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper. It is used to make interior walls and ceilings. Drywall construction became prevalent as a speedier alternative to traditional lath and plaster.


The process of making gypsum board begins with the mineral being ground and combined with starch to help with adhesion. Depending on the type of wallboard being made, other trace ingredients might be added at this point. Just enough water is added to create a slurry of the right consistency. Wet gypsum slurry is then sandwiched between two heavy sheets of paper and kiln dried to make the board rigid. The large sheets of wallboard are then cut into standard sizes.


Gypboard is being used primarily in urban areas. The major applications are: : (a) Partition applications (b) Ceiling applications (c) Wall-lining applications  


Makers of gypsum wallboard have seen a pickup in business in recent quarters thanks to improving construction markets as well as a more aggressive pricing strategy among manufacturers. gypsum-based panels are the most common building blocks used for interior walls and ceilings.

And now that the housing market is rebounding -- storms and other obstacles aside -- demand for the material is on the upswing.

With in next 5 year,s India shall be importing 500 million sq m/year of Gypsum board and this demand will increase up to 1200 million sqm/year by year 2020.
