Abuse-Resistant / Impact-Resistant Drywall

Abuse-Resistant (AR) gypsum board and Impact-Resistant (IR) gypsum board are two great solutions for increasing the resistance of a structure's walls to both surface and penetration damage in busy, high-traffic areas. And true to their name, both products also include a powerful mold-protection system to add proven mold and moisture resistance. That means whether the risk of damage is moderate or severe, or the issue of concern is contact damage or moisture, it provides the answer both during construction and for years to come.

Features:

  • Scuff- and abrasion-resistant smooth face paper
  • Ease of installation: cuts, applies and finishes like regular gypsum
  • Enhanced core density provides extra strength and heat resistance
  • Fire resistance classified by Underwriters Laboratories according to ASTM E119
  • Available with a minimum of 93% certified recycled content on a dry-weight basis in accordance with ISO 14021 standards

Product Performance Tests:

AR and IR have been tested in accordance with ASTM C1629 as a basis for the comparison of their expected performance properties against various types of abuse.

Limitations:

  • For interior use only
  • Avoid exposure to prolonged, extreme temperatures greater than 125°F (52°C)
  • Should not be used as a tile backer in tub and shower surrounds or in areas with a risk of continuous exposure to water such as swimming pool enclosures, steam rooms or gang shower rooms

Mold and Moisture Resistance:

It provides an enhanced water and mold-resistant core, as well as water- and mold-resistant facers on both sides. Verified independently as per ASTM D4373, the standard test of mold resistance, featuring the TemShield mold protection system scored a 10 of a possible 10 in laboratory evaluations.

Fire Resistance of 5/8" Type X Panels:

This material has been fire tested in accordance with the requirements of ASTM E119 and therefore may provide a fire rating of one or more hours, depending on the system in which it is applied. Because ASTM procedures require that fire tests be conducted on complete building assemblies/systems and not just on the board itself, the ability of any particular 5/8" Type X gypsum board to pass a specific ASTM fire test may well depend on factors other than the fire resistance of the gypsum board being tested.

Low VOC-Emitting Material:

Gypsum board products are third-party certified by Materials Analytical Services, LLC (MAS) to meet the performance standard established for low-emitting materials under the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) Program.

Sulfur Emissions Testing:

In emissions level testing for carbon disulfide and carbonyl sulfide conducted by Materials Analytical Services, U.S producted gypsum board was determined to be negative for sulfur off-gassing and is not considered a problematic corrosive drywall type.

Storage:

To prevent damaging the finished edges, gypsum wallboards should be carried, never dragged. To protect the Drywall from weather and direct sunlight when storing gypsum boards, store them indoors. Care should be taken to prevent sagging or damage to edges, ends and surfaces and gypsum boards should be stored lying flat and neatly stacked.
