Regular Gypsum Board

Regular gypsum board is the foundation for beautiful walls. That’s because it offers an easy-to-work-with, smooth, consistent surface. Manufactured in a range of dimensions, it is an efficient, affordable, lightweight material for both remodeling and new construction.

  • 1⁄4" - A lightweight, low-cost gypsum board used to form curved surfaces, cover old wall and ceiling surfaces, and as a base layer for improving sound control in double layer steel and wood stud partitions.
  • 3⁄8" - A lightweight, low-cost gypsum board used in double wall systems over wood framing. Also used for repair and remodeling of residential and commercial construction.
  • 1⁄2" - A lightweight, low-cost gypsum board used extensively in residential construction.

Regular gypsum board also provides some fire resistance. When exposed to flames, the natural moisture contained in the gypsum core is slowly released as steam, effectively retarding heat transmission.

Features:

  • May be installed over wood or metal framing
  • Panels do not support combustion
  • Long edges tapered for easier, smoother joint finishing
  • Available with a minimum of 98% certified recycled content on a dry-weight basis in accordance with ISO 14021 standards

Limitations:

  • Designed for interior use only
  • Avoid exposure to prolonged, excessive temperatures: 125°F (52°C)
  • Avoid exposure to excessive or continuous moisture
  • Must be protected from direct exposure to weather and properly supported to prevent sag

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:

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