The simplicity and effectiveness of this technology has long been proven, this is evidenced by its popularity around the world.

For the first time he began to be used in the construction direction in ancient Egypt, and even then people realized that gypsum has excellent characteristics. At that time it was used even to finish the interior of the pyramids and funeral chambers. But the modern name was given not by the Egyptians, but the Greeks, from their language it translates as a “boiling stone”. Gypsum spread thanks to the Romans.
