Do you know your raw material down to the last detail?


No? Then our gypsum specialists will be happy to help, starting with a detailed analysis of the raw material that forms the basic element for your production. Our work therefore always begins with a precise analysis of the calcium sulfate dihydrate value and the associated purity of the gypsum. Because only those who have a thorough knowledge of their raw material can fully exploit the associated potential. Based on our analyses, laying out the technical solutions is only the second step in the process.

Our pilot plant, which simulates a small gypsum plant (400 square meters) with its numerous test apparatuses, enables us to carry out not only well-founded analyses but also practice-oriented tests with the starting material that allow us to check the resulting product quality. Given the specific starting material, we can examine the calcining and setting behavior of your raw material in detail. With this information in hand, we will also be pleased to advise you on your individual product formulation.


  • Precise analysis of the raw material
  • Practical tests under real production conditions on calcination and setting behavior
  • Formulation development for the production of gypsum board, gypsum plaster, and gypsum wall blocks
