Products for Gypsum Board

Elkem Microsilica® is used in gypsum board applications to improve a board's fire resistance.

Elkem Microsilica® delays the shrinkage that occurs in a gypsum board when it is exposed to fire, and at the same time, it significantly improves strength retention.

Elkem Microsilica® also improves the dispersion of other ingredients in a gypsum board, particularly fibers.

The overall benefit from the inclusion of Elkem Microsilica® in a gypsum board is additional 'fire protection' before a board collapses.
