Gypsum board is the generic name for a family of panel-type products consisting of a noncombustible core, primarily composed of gypsum, with a paper surfacing on the face, back, and long edges. Gypsum although a much older material than the cement & sand plaster has rarely been used extensively in construction industry, it has since gained popularity and proved to be a miraculous material aiding interior construction due to its properties.

Gypsum board walls and ceilings have a number of outstanding advantages:

Fire resistant

Gypsum board is an excellent fire resistive material making it the most commonly used interior finish where fire resistance classifications are required like the Kitchen. When installed in combination with other materials, it serves to effectively protect building elements from fire for prescribed period of time.

Saves construction time.

Sand cement plaster needs up to 21 days of curing, which is a waiting period that allows the plaster to harden and settle. With Gypsum plastering however, you don’t have to wait for long – Gypsum plaster dries and settles in 3 days, and hence the construction pace is faster.

Ease of Application.

Gypsum is very workable, and can be altered in consistency to achieve different designs and textures. It can also be easily used in combination with Aluminium frames to create the desired shapes and designs.

Better acoustics

Gypsum board wall and ceiling offer better acoustics in your home thus guaranteeing you peace and privacy by minimizing echo in the room and lesser intervention of outside sounds.


With Gypsum boards, you are assured of strong high-quality walls and ceilings with excellent dimensional stability and durability. It is also easy to decorate and refinish surfaces created from Gypsum boards.
