Gypsum Plasterboard

Gypsum Plasterboard

Our foaming agents provide engineered solutions for manufacturing plasterboards with different properties.

A required core structure and board property can be achieved simply by selecting the optimal chemistry for a specific formulation, process condition or customer application.

In addition to the foaming agents, we can provide a powder surfactant to aid gypsum grinding and a liquid fluidizer to complete our product portfolio for manufacturers of gypsum plasterboard.


MILLIFOAM® PB

Our gypsum foaming agents are sold under the registered brand name MILLIFOAM® PB and can be supplied as RSPO certified MB (Mass Balance).

The range helps to stabilize the gypsum plasterboard through three key chemical phenomena. Firstly, the repulsion of surfactant ‘head groups’ retains the thickness of the lamellar and reduces bubble film drainage. Secondly, rapid diffusion of the surfactant to the expanded surface reinforces film thickness, preventing the natural deformation of the film. Thirdly, a densely packed surfactant film can reduce diffusion of gas through the liquid interface and help prevent bubble destruction.
