Gypsum Boards - A skin for the wall
Gypsum is the ideal surface for a wall because it has the same PH value and thermal conductivity properties as the human skin. Gypsum is made up of minerals, and is free of any materials that could negatively influence a sense of well-being. Gypsum is not harmful to human skin: modern medicine uses gypsum directly on the skin to set broken bones; dental technology uses gypsum for molds.
Feel the Warmth
Building materials made of gypsum always feel warm when touched. This is no deception as gypsum possesses low thermal conductivity properties. As a result, gypsum building materials store warmth within a building.
The secret of a balanced room climate lies primarily in balanced humidity levels. Once again nature has presented us with a highly effective moisture management system in gypsum.
The gypsum can absorb a lot of humidity through its open and crystalline pores and then automatically releases this moisture when a room becomes too dry. This works as often as necessary, and without consuming energy.
