Based on the modern concepts of gypsum cement-silica systems hardening mechanism, it is necessary to comply with the following conditions to ensure their durability: supporting of binding of most aluminates with gypsum to form ettringite in the initial period of hardening of the system with the increase in the level of hydration of portland cement, for example, by the mechanical and chemical activation; upholding the concentration of calcium hydroxide on the desired level during hardening to provide the conditions for the formation of various hydrate tumors, including low-basic calcium hydroaluminates (Ferronskaja, A.
