What is gypsum retarder?
Gypsum retarder is a kind of retarder that can effectively delay the hydration reaction of gypsum, prolong the setting time of gypsum, make the fresh slurry maintain plasticity for a long time, facilitate pouring, improve construction efficiency, and improve the performance of gypsum-based cementing materials in the later period. Gypsum retarder that will not cause adverse effects.

The mechanism of retarder on hemihydrate gypsum
The setting time of hemihydrate gypsum after encountering water is generally 5-20min. The purpose of retarders is to delay the hydration of gypsum. The main mechanism is to slow down the dissolution rate of the hemihydrate gypsum phase. The coagulant, retarding effect is to adsorb on the surface of dihydrate gypsum particles, forming a protective colloid to hinder the hydration of hemihydrate gypsum.
