Building Materials

Gypsum is a raw material used mainly in the production of plasterboard and is also a key ingredient for producing cement. Thanks to its fire-resistant ability, gypsum has been the material of choice for building structures since ancient times.

There are two variations of gypsum: natural, which can be found while mining sedimentary rocks; and chemical, which is a by-product of phosphate chemical fertilization and energy production. NCL trades natural high quality gypsum from Oman and Laos.
