100% NATURAL GYPSUM AND GREEN BUILDING
Gypsum, a calcium sulphate mineral, is an absolutely natural, odorless and non-toxic material.
Gessi Roccastrada products are made of the best gypsum stones from our Roccastrada quarries and are completely free from organic or chemical binders. For this reason they can be considered the ideal complement for your building projects.
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.
ZERO VOC* FOR BEST 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.
*VOC - Volatile Organic Compounds
The emissions of GREEN GYPS products are lower than the limits set by the Environment Ministerial Decree of 11-01-2017. According to French Decree no. 2011-321 of 23-03-2011 are part of class A + (very low emissions).
