Neutralized gypsum as granules (acid fluoride)

Gypsum as by-product is produced during Hydrofluoric Acid manufacturing process.
Neutralized pulp in granules (gypsum) is anhydrous calcium sulfate (anhydride). This product is used as an additive to a natural gypsum in cement industry to produce alabaster binding material and dry pack mortar, including self-leveling floor. Anhydrous cement forms gypsum rock when reacting with water. Unlike natural gypsum, hardening of anhydrous cement takes longer time, and the produced gypsum rock has higher strength, exceeding the strength of the best grades of natural gypsum. When hardening, anhydrous cement produced of gypsum as resulted from hydrofluoric acid manufacturing does not shrink, has low density, high sound absorption, fire-resistance and excellent sanitary characteristics. One of the advantages of the gypsum is low cost.

Neutralized gypsum as granules (acid fluoride)
The results of industrial and laboratory tests of fluorogypsum (acid fluoride) are as follows:
