Beta and Alpha Gypsum
When the hemi-hydrate of gypsum is formed by calcining in kettles at atmospheric pressure, the result is known as Beta gypsum. Alpha gypsum, on the other hand, is made by processing batches of gypsum under elevated pressure. Alpha gypsum has a lower water-carrying capability and is used where high strength is required. Sometimes Alpha and Beta gypsum are blended to produce varieties of plasters with medium water demands.
