1/2 in x 4 ft x 8 ft National Gypsum Gold Bond XP Fire-Shield C Gypsum Board

Description
Description

XP® Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board with Sporgard® was developed as an improved moisture resistant board, offering the same advantages of a traditional moisture resistant board with added mold resistance in the core and paper. XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board panels consist of a specially treated, fire-resistant, Type C gypsum core encased in a heavy mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled, National Gypsum PURPLE® paper on the face side and a heavy, mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled, gray paper on the back side.

XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board was designed to provide extra protection against mold and mildew compared to standard gypsum board products. The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, and the ends are square-cut and finished smooth. Long edges of the panels are tapered.

XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board features a Type C core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in tested systems.

XP Fire-Shield C Gypsum Board Panels have a specially formulated Type C core to achieve superior performance when used in specific fire-rated assemblies where the weight and number of gypsum board layers are a concern.

Advantages
