Specially formulated Type X core

Superior performance when used in specific fire-rated Type C assemblies

Gold Bond® Fire-Shield C™ 5/8" Gypsum Board panels have a specially formulated Type X core to achieve superior performance when used in specific fire-rated Type C assemblies.

The lightweight, cost-efficient material readily accepts a wide range of decorative finishes. Fire-Shield C Gypsum Board is easily cut for quick installation, permitting painting or other decoration, and the installation of metal or wood trim almost immediately.

Long edges of the panels are tapered or square.

Check the Fire and Safety Information for a more complete explanation of how fire resistance ratings work.

Basic Uses

  • Single- or multi-layer construction for fire-tested assemblies. Also used as a roofing substrate.


  • The gypsum core will not support combustion or transmit temperatures greatly in excess of 212°F (100°C) until completely calcined, a slow process.
  • Expansion and contraction under normal atmospheric changes is negligible.

Gold Bond® Fire-Shield C™ 5/8" Gypsum Board has achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification.
