  • For speed of installation, GridMarX® guide marks are printed on the paper surface.
  • All-in-one board reduces installation steps and offers labor savings.
  • Versatile product that is appropriate for use on virtually all exterior wall and ceiling construction: wood frame, steel frame and furred masonry.

Gold Bond® Foil Back Gypsum Board consists of a fire-resistant gypsum core with a heavy, natural finish and 100-percent recycled paper on the face and a strong liner paper on the back side.

A Type III aluminum foil vapor retarder, laminated to the back surface, is designed to prevent condensation from occurring within the wall cavity.

Use it on the interior face of exterior walls and ceilings in new construction and remodeling with furred masonry, wood or steel framing. It is effective for single-layer applications and as a base layer in double-layer applications that require a vapor retarder of 1 perm or less.

APPLICATIONS

  • Use 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) Foil Back Gypsum Board for the interior face of exterior walls and ceilings where a vapor retarder is required. Also use it in non-fire-rated construction where framing members are spaced up to 24 in. (610 mm) o.c.
  • Use 5/8 in. (15.9 mm) Foil Back Gypsum Board where enhanced fire safety and sound transmission performance are desired.

ADVANTAGES

  • Optimal vapor retarder that prevents condensation from occurring in the wall cavity. In accordance with ASTM E96.
  • All-in-one board reduces installation steps and offers labor savings.
  • Versatile product that is appropriate for use on virtually all exterior wall and ceiling construction: wood frame, steel frame and furred masonry.
  • Excellent working properties, including score and snap, reduced dust and improved strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Features the GridMarX® preprinted fastening guide on the board to allow for faster and more accurate installation.

Gold Bond® Foil Back Gypsum Board has achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification.
