Storage of Gypsum Products

Through a heating and crushing process, gypsum loses water. It continually tries to absorb water from any source possible, including humidity. Labs must store it carefully.

Think Green!

For many in the United States, Saint Patrick’s Day is a day of celebrating their Irish heritage. Across the county, there will be parades, gatherings, and celebrations. To earmark the celebrations, people will decorate with four leaf clovers, leprechauns, and pots of gold — all decked out in green and gold. Whip Mix will also be celebrating with Green.

Temperature, Chemistry, Physics and Your Lab

We all know that hot air rises and cold air sinks. We adjust to those conditions without even thinking, but what about the materials we use everyday in our labs? In some ways, they are more sensitive to the temps than we are. Read to see how we need to consider temperature, chemistry and physics.

Consistent Reactions Require Consistent Conditions

When the weather changes, so do the conditions in the lab, and therefore so do all of your chemical reactions. When that happens, consider the temperature and the humidity of your laboratory environment to accommodate the changes. Read to see how these changes affect your laboratory materials.
