    The only comprehensive resource of its kind, covering both gypsum science and technology

    This new ASTM manual bridges the gap in the literature between academic papers that deal with narrow subjects and applications.

    Ten comprehensive chapters cover:
    Gypsum science—background, history, origin, properties, and processes
    Technology—manufacturing, types, advantages, installation

    It also addresses how the utilization of gypsum is affected by several overall technical factors, including:
    • Structural Effects
    • Effects of Water
    • Effects of Hydrated Lime
    • Effects of Hydration Stage
    • Plaster vs. Gypsum Board
