Gypsum is now doubling the weather exposure limited warranty for its entire
line of DensArmor Plus interior panels from six months to 12 months.
All of the following Georgia-Pacific Gypsum fiberglass mat interior panels now
offer a 12-month weather exposure limited warranty:
DensArmor Plus High-Performance Interior Panels
DensArmor Plus Abuse-Resistant Interior Panels
DensArmor Plus Impact-Resistant Interior Panels
These interior products join Georgia-Pacific Gypsum’s exterior products
(DensGlass Sheathing and DensGlass Shaftliner) in offering a 12-month weather
exposure limited warranty for the U.S. and Canadian markets.
“Our 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.”
Recently, 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.
