What is anhydrite
Anhydrite is a mineral of the Calcium Sulphate family (CaSO4). Unlike other minerals, such as gypsum (CaSO4,2H20), anhydrite does not contain any water in its crystal structure: it’s an anhydrous compound.
This feature, as well as its specific crystalline configuration, make anhydrite a unique material with outstanding properties beneficial in many industrial applications.
Although anhydrite can be found in natural mining deposits, it can also be obtained as a byproduct from different industrial processes. The Minersa Group produces, processes and markets the latest variety of this more sustainable anhydrite.
Screed solutions :
In construction, Gyvlon can advantageously replace traditional cement, as a binder for screed mortars.
Gyvlon is widely used in floor screed applications because of its numerous advantages : better fluidity for self-levelling, greater dimensional stability, high mechanical strength and outstanding thermal conductivity.
Industrial applications :
Synthetic anhydrite can also be used as an additive for many industrial applications, such as :
- Cement production : to bring specific properties such as set time controller, enhancer of mechanical strength, shrinkage inhibiter ...
- Aerated block production : to generate hydrogen emission when the anhydrite reacts with the aluminum powder.
- Fertilizer production : to bring calcium and sulphate as fertilizing elements or as a mineral filler.
- Inerting industry : to neutralize polluted soil in order to prevent further pollution spread.
