(57) The present application describes a process for the continuous production of alpha-calcium sulphate hemihydrate, the process comprising the steps of: providing particulate gypsum; providing water; mixing the particulate gypsum and the water to form a gypsum slurry; and maintaining said gypsum slurry under raised pressure and temperature to convert the particulate gypsum into alpha-calcium sulphate hemihydrate and provide an alpha-calcium sulphate hemihydrate slurry. Additionally, the particulate gypsum comprises a D 10 value greater than or equal to 2 µm, a D90 value smaller than or equal to 90 pm and a D50 value smaller than or equal to 25 µm. Particulate gypsum for use in the process is also provided.
