MIXTURES BASED ON NATURAL GYPSUM POWDER
Green Gyps represents a large range of products dedicated to modern construction.
In Roccastrada we produce high quality plaster and blends with a wide range of applications, from art to ceramics.
MORE HEALTH IN HOME AND OFFICE
ZERO VOC*, better air quality.
ZERO VOC Gypsum mixtures are 100% natural and do not release volatile organic pollutants (VOCs) such as Formaldehyde which is the main VOC content in the air. It is a carcinogenic compound that can irritate mucous membranes. It is contained in many building materials such as paints, adhesives, synthetic panels and tiles. Benzene, a known VOC substance found in tobacco smoke and fuels, is often used for the production of plastic materials, resins and synthetic fibers.
Long-term exposure to VOCs contributes to the sick building syndrome, a phenomenon unfortunately very common in our homes as demonstrated by many authoritative studies.
VOC and Ecosystem Directives:
New ecological sensitivity and environmental legislation show that some of the solutions of the past are no longer compatible with the right to health, with existing laws and with the ecosystem.
VOCs - Volatile Organic Compounds
GYPSUM AND GREEN BUILDING 100% NATURAL
Gypsum surfaces naturally fight bacteria. Laboratory testing results in a remarkable reduction in implanted colonies. Gypsum finishes for this are particularly suitable in hospital environments and in highly affluent places.
Gypsum meets the new biocompatibility requirements of the building with particular reference to applications in the hospital construction industry.
THE BEST QUALITY FROM THE MOST IMPORTANT QUARRY IN ITALY
In the heart of the largest Italian gypsum field, formed millions of years ago by coral reefs of an ancient tropical ocean. With an area of more than 400 hectares of quarries and buildings, Gessi Roccastrada is the leader in gypsum extraction and production. Gypsum, a calcium sulphate mineral, is an absolutely natural, odorless and non-toxic material, obtained by simple gypsum stone cooking. Gypsum has been well-respected for millennia for its ease of use and hygroscopic properties that, thanks to its micropore, regulate the humidity of environments. It continues to be successfully used in modern building for thermal-acoustic insulation qualities and for passive fire protection. The gypsum of Roccastrada is distinguished by the purity of stone and the high degree of white.
