Gypsum retarder is a white or brown powder, easily soluble in water. It is mainly used in gypsum building materials to delay the setting time of gypsum and enhance the strength of gypsum, so that the fluidity of gypsum can last for a period of time, Gypsum retarder can greatly reduce the waste and loss of gypsum to improve the efficiency of construction.
