Gypsum (a bi-product of salt) is a mineral and is hydrated calcium sulfate in chemical form. Gypsum plays a very important role in controlling the rate of hardening of the cement. During the cement manufacturing process, upon the cooling of clinker, a small amount of gypsum is introduced during the final grinding process.

POP (Plaster of Paris) is made up of gypsum. Plaster of Paris is used to do ornamental work on ceilings and cornices. Plaster of Paris contains the calcium sulfate hemihydrates (CaSO4·0.5H2O). This is prepared by heating the gypsum which contains calcium sulfate dihydrate (CaSO4·2H2O) to a temperature about 150 degree centigrade. Certain additives are added when heating. Plaster of Paris is a fine, white powder. When it is hydrated it can be used to mould things, and when allowed to dry, it hardens and retains whatever the shape it is set before drying.

Gypsum is also basically used as an agent to remove saline/alkaline ingredients in the soil. These Gypsum Powders are hugely in demand in bricks industry, agricultural industry, cement industry and many more.
