27processing of gypsum as mineral

11.16 Gypsum Manufacturing

mineral. Raw gypsum ore is processed into a variety of products such as a portland cement additive, soil conditioner, industrial and building plasters, and gypsum wallboard. To produce plasters or wallboard, gypsum must be partially dehydrated or calcined to produce calcium sulfate hemihydrate (CaSO4 ½H 2O), commonly called stucco.

Blown mineral wool fibers are introduced into slurries (such as gypsum board core formulations and steel column fireproofing plaster formulations) by first blending and coating the blown mineral wool with a powdered calcium sulfate to produce a light, open nodulated effect. When mixed into aqueous calcined gypsum slurries, the nodules open up, thoroughly dispersing the mineral wool--calcium ...

A gypsum board includes a set gypsum core and front and rear paper facers adhered thereto. At least the front paper facer has substantially isotropic tensile strength, thereby providing the gypsum board with enhanced nail pull resistance. A process for manufacturing such gypsum board is further provided.

Gypsum

Gypsum is considered both a sedimentary rock and a mineral. Its chemical formula is CaSO 4 ∙2H 2 O. Because gypsum formed when ancient seas evaporated in Oklahoma during Permian time (299-251 million years ago), geologists classify it as an evaporite.Western Oklahoma has many large deposits of gypsum totaling trillions of tons (Figure 1).
