Natural Gypsum is Calcium Sulphate Dihydrate (CaSO4.2H2O) deposited in sedimentary layers on the sea bed. Under high pressure and temperature Gypsum turns into Anhydrite (CaSO4). Natural Gypsum/Anhydrite are produced from open-cast mines, or underground mines. Natural Gypsum is normally only screened to remove ‘fines’ (mainly mudstones), then crushed and finely ground for various applications.

Natural Gypsum is an indispensable component of Ordinary Portland Cement as it has a great influence on water consumption of standard consistence and strength simultaneously. During the cement manufacturing process, 4%-6% of Natural Gypsum (by weight) in crushed form is introduced during the final grinding process upon cooling of clinker. It plays an important role in controlling the rate of hardening or setting of cement. If not added, the cement will set immediately after mixing of water leaving no time for concrete placing

Over 60% of Natural Gypsum produced across the world is used in cement manufacturing. Other applications include production of plaster, plasterboards, Gypsum fibreboard and Gypsum blocks. It can also be used as a soil conditioner and has various other specialized applications. An important property of Gypsum is that it is naturally fire-resistant.

We source Natural Gypsum directly from mines in Oman, and export to various destinations across the world.

BULK (SEA)

  • Shipping in specialized bulk vessels
  • Eliminates big bagging and de-bagging operations
  • Increases supply chain efficiency
  • Avoids double handling and reduces end-to-end logistics costs as well as operational costs
  • More environment-friendly
  • Requires storage, loading and discharge infrastructure on both sides

There are so many Natural Gypsum suppliers in the market!

Unorganized traders and exporters have no product knowledge nor any understanding of the business/ logistics, and rely on price as a weapon to lure customers. Beware, a lower price always comes with compromises and risks. An apparent short-term gain due to lower prices could get wiped out by much bigger losses and long-term damage to the reputation and business of the buyer.

Please check the following before procuring Natural Gypsum from any supplier:

  • 'Valid' long-term supply contract with the source
  • Expertise, experience and risk management in bulk exports/ logistics
  • Quality control process
  • Verifiable sales volumes in past 12 months as proof of regular supplies in local and export markets, backed by genuine customer references
  • Company documents to verify credibility and experience in the business (more the better!)

Environmental Impact of Gypsum

Gypsum products are amongst the very few construction materials where ‘closed loop’ recycling is possible, i.e. where the waste can be used to make the same product again and not merely recovered for use in other ‘down-cycling’ applications, such as is the case with some other construction materials such as waste concrete and bricks used for aggregates in road construction.

Furthermore, a major advantage of Gypsum is that it is eternally recyclable. Increasing recycling of Gypsum products waste is occurring from construction sites. Once collected, the plasterboards are broken down into a fine powder which is then re-introduced, in a controlled blend, into the manufacturing process. Tonnages derived from this source are increasing. Only a small quantity is currently recycled from demolition waste due to challenges surrounding contamination with other materials. Recycled Gypsum products qualify for credit under the U.S. Green Building Council's popular LEED™ rating system for sustainable construction.
