Gypcrete can be scratched fairly easily with something like a screwdriver.

In a multi-dwelling building, that layer helps with both sound and fire resistance, so you need a similar material back down to preserve that.

It looks like there's a bunch of aggregate in that mix, which may lean more towards concrete verses gypcrete.
