panels are moisture- and mold-resistant, due to fiberglass mats instead of
paper facings. Their use can potentially accelerate building schedules since
they can be installed earlier in the construction cycle, even before the roof
is sealed,” said Mike Clay, vice president, sales and marketing for Georgia-Pacific
Gypsum. “With the inevitability of delayed construction due to weather, this
extended warranty gives confidence to construction professionals that our
products will perform as expected.”
the DensArmor Plus High-Performance Interior Panels, along with DensShield Tile
Backer, passed a stringent mold resistance test. The 12-week process, conducted
in accordance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ASTM D 6329
protocol, is three times longer and much more rigorous than ASTM D 3273, the
current industry standard.
