Lightweight specialty gypsum board
June 28, 2011
Gold Bond High Strength LITE is a specialty gypsum board formulated to be 25 percent lighter than original 1/2-inch gypsum board. It is lightweight, sag-resistant, easy to handle and can be used for walls and ceilings, eliminating the need for two different types of gypsum board on the job. The board is designed for use in non-fire rated single-layer construction where framing members are spaced up to 24 inches on-center. The board’s working properties include improved score and snap, reduced dust and improved strength-to-weight ratio. In addition, its face paper features GridMarX guide marks to allow installers to quickly identify fastener lines for stud and joist framing as well as nail and screw patterns.
