Gypsum underlayments often known as Gypcrete is a great building material for use in wood frame and concrete constructions. This type of underlayment is popular in residential style homes and commercial buildings where self leveling is required or radiant floor heating is installed.
When compared to concrete, Gypcrete has 3 main strengths, it is very light weight (about %30 less) and it has an excellent fire rating, and it can be laid very fast. Despite Gypcrete weighing significantly less, it has the same compressive strength as concrete. In a single day, your crew will be able to lay 4-6 times more product when compared to regular cement.
