Product Description

Most architects know drywall as the product choice for quality wall, ceiling, and partition systems in residential, institutional, and commercial structures. However, many architects, engineers, and project owners are unaware of the natural benefits of drywall’s primary component — gypsum.

The mineral gypsum has been used as a building product for decades and is primarily used today as gypsum board (drywall). This course describes the properties of gypsum, the similarities of natural and synthetic gypsum, the applications and benefits of gypsum-panel products in construction, and gypsum’s numerous environmental benefits.
