Gypsum Block is a massive yet lightweight building material composed of solid gypsum. It is made up of gypsum plaster, water, and additives like fiber in some cases for greater strength.
- This product is used for building and erecting lightweight, fire-resistant and non-load bearing interior walls, partition walls, cavity walls, skin walls and pillar-casing indoors.
- Partition walls made from gypsum blocks require no sub-structure for erection and gypsum adhesive is used as a bonding agent instead of regular mortar.
- Thus, gypsum blocks should not be confused with the thinner plaster board (also known as a wallboard or gypsum board) used for paneling stud walls.
