Gypsum based Building Materials (Quality Control) Order, 2023

Gypsum based Building Materials (Quality Control) Order, 2023.Gypsum based Building Materials are mainly Gypsum Plaster Boards. Gypsum boards have the specific advantage of being lighter than the boards of similar nature, such as fibre hard boards and asbestos cement building boards. Gypsum boards also possess better fire resisting, thermal and sound insulating properties.Gypsum boards may be manufactured as plain, laminated and reinforced boards. Reinforcing materials generally used as glass, paper, vegetable fibres, etc.The Glass Fibre Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) Panel is a building panel made-up of calcined gypsum plaster, reinforced with glass fibres. The GFRG Panel is manufactured in semi-automatic plant using slurry of calcined gypsum plaster mixed with certain chemicals including water repellent emulsion and glass fibre rovings. The wall panels can be cut as per dimensions & requirements of the building planned. The Laminated gypsum boards are used for laying for concrete ceiling. With concrete it combines firmly and represents readymade interior plastering. The Glass reinforced gypsum boards (GRG) are pseudo ductile materials having reasonably high flexural and impact strengths. GRG can be sawn, drilled, screwed or nailed like timber. It is resistant to white ant and termite and completely non-combustible.
