AbstractGypsum has been used as building material over a very long period of time. The production of gypsum plaster in Iraq confined on three types; plaster of Paris, ordinary gypsum and mechanical gypsum. The purpose of this study is to present a proposal to produce another type of gypsum plaster called Keene's cement, it has improvement characterizes than the other types of gypsum. In this study different percentage of alum solution has been used to soaked in gypsum lumps and different recalcinating temperatures also have been used. The results show that 12% of alum and 250 C° recalcinating temperature gave the highest result of compressive strength of Keene's cement product.
