What is a gypsum board? Gypsum board, also known as plasterboard, sheetrock, drywall, is a kind of building material with light weight, high strength, thin thickness, convenient processing, sound insulation, heat preservation, and fire prevention. As a new-type light board that is highly praised by governments around the world, gypsum board has been widely used in various buildings such as residences, office buildings, malls, stores, hotels, industrial plants, etc.

Gypsum board manufacturing process

How to manufacture a gypsum board? The answer is a gypsum board production line. The gypsum board manufacturing process can be divided into six steps as follows:

  1. raw materials processing: All raw materials including gypsum powder, water, and other additives enter the mixer through the automatic metering system and conveying system. After mixing, the gypsum slurry generated from the mixer would be evenly scattered on the surface of the continuously moving body paper.
  2. mixing: With continuous moving and vibrating, gypsum slurry will gradually diffuse and scatter evenly on the surface of the moving body paper. Then it goes into the forming machine and is compounded with the top paper.
  3. forming: By the process of extruding and forming, the gypsum slurry will be sealed by the top paper and body paper. Thus the pulpous continuous plasterboard is formed. Wet gypsum board is conveyed by setting belt, at the moment, it is gradually formed after board shaping, natural coagulation, and automatic cutting. The wet boards, arranged by the programmed control system, Pass the 1# horizontal conveyor and the plate turnover machine and then quickly enter the dryer through the distribution bridge.
  4. drying: Under strict controls in the temperature zone of the dryer, the wet board will be dried with different-temperature hot air. Modified starch would be stuck with the paper. Then dry gypsum boards would be transported out of the dryer.
  5. cutting and sealing: Then gypsum board is turned over again and folded together(face inside), cut into a certain size of the finished product, and edge sealed, which will satisfy the customer’s request
  6. stacking: Finally, it comes to an automatic stacker for stacking. They can be transported to the warehouse by forklift after stacking.
