Fibre-rich building board formulations using Fibrous Clay Residues (FCR)

USAL, working with FCR (fibrous clay residues, i.e. waste from recycling paper), stucco and zeolite has identified a range of high quality building board formulations. The fibrous waste residues that result from recycling waste paper can be combined with gypsum and successfully transformed into high quality building boards for internal use. Board formulations can be tailored to achieve target densities, strengths and stiffnesses. Commercial production may be by pressing or by continuous process.
