National Introduces Shaftliner at Intex
“National Gypsum has developed a new weather resistant alternative to traditional shaftliner panels that provides superior sound and fire resistant qualities,” said Jay Watt, director, sales and marketing.
The mold- and moisture-resistant shaftliner panel is made with a fire-resistant Type X core. It’s the next application of the company’s Gold Bond e2XP technology, which employs a coated fiberglass mat and enhanced core that can withstand up to 12 months of typical weather conditions. Like e2XP Sheathing, e2XP Shaftliner is produced in the signature purple color of National’s mold-resistant XP product family and is named for its capability to withstand extended exposure to the elements.
The product is specially coated on the front, back and edges for easy handling and scores and snaps to exact size without sawing. In addition, the lightweight panel’s long sides are double beveled for ease of installation.
