Moisture- and Mildew-Resistant Wallboard
December 20, 2012
The new Sheetrock UltraLight Panels Mold Tough is a lightweight wallboard panel with moisture and mold resistance for use in many different environments. Weighing in at 1.35 pounds per square foot, these panels are easier to lift, carry and install and are the lightest 1/2-inch mold-resistant gypsum wallboard panel available today. The panels are re-engineered, lightweight wallboard panels with a high strength-to-weight ratio composite design. With an easy score and snap, these panels install and finish just like standard drywall, making for a simple installation process. The product has a noncombustible, moisture-resistant core encased in 100 percent recycled moisture and mold resistant green face and brown back papers. The green face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core and the ends are cut square and even. The long edges of the panels are tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with Sheetrock Brand joint treatment systems. Intended for areas where moisture and mold resistance is desired, the panels are suitable for new residential construction, repair and remodel construction, wood or steel framing, and can be used as a tile substrate in dry locations or areas with limited water exposure.
