    For what purpose are you asking?

    Ultracal-30 is also a Strong Gypsum, I use both for various projects...

    Absolutely Hydrocal is much stronger than PoP. Its a gypsum that natuarally repells water. Its commonly used for molds when using latex. The Hydrocal will whisk the moisture right out of the latex and through itself into the atmosphere. Ive dropped small molds on the table occasionally and they havent broken. I actually have to put some effort into breaking unwanted molds.

    Did you mean to say "hydrocal" in the third sentence?
