Drywall is kind of fascinating, the gypsum is sort of interesting, the way that this does it, is that when it gets heat on it the heat actually chemically changes the gypsum, and so the gypsum in that chemical change process, because when you have a chemical change the chemical change either gives off heat or absorbs heat and in this case it absorbs heat, and so the reason that drywall's so great for this is that it manages to absorb an enormous amount of heat and in that process will deaden the fire before it can get through the wall. It will eventually damage the drywall so much that it'll start to crumble, and it will eventually get through anyway, but it will last for a period of time while that gypsum is going through that process. So this is a sort of simple idea.
