Improved moisture resistant board
Features a Type X core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in tested systems.
- Provides greater fire resistance.
- Speeds up installation.
- Reduces costs.
XP® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board with Sporgard® was developed as improved moisture resistant board, offering the same advantages of a traditional moisture resistant board with added mold resistance in the core and paper.
XP® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board panels consist of a specially treated, fire-resistant, Type X gypsum core encased in a heavy mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled, PURPLE® paper on the face side and a heavy, mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled gray paper on the backside.
The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, and the ends are square-cut and finished smooth.
XP® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board features a Type X core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in tested systems.
XP® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board — For single-layer - steel stud and cavity shaftwall systems. The greater thickness provides increased resistance to fire and reduced sound transmission vs. single layer of 5/8" Type X.
- The specially formulated core has added fire-resistive qualities and is UL Classified for fire resistance.
- Scores and snaps easily and cuts quickly, permitting painting or other decoration and the installation of metal or wood trim almost immediately.
- Lessen labor and material costs by using fewer layers (up to 10%).
- Thicker core equals added abuse resistance.
- Resists the growth of mold per ASTM G 21 with a score of 0, the best possible score.
- Resists the growth of mold per ASTM D 3273 with a score of 10, the best possible score.
- 3/4" Ultra-Shield FS XP Gypsum Board is moisture resistant and can be used as a tile backerboard in dry areas or areas with limited water exposure such as toilet/sink areas and wall areas above tile in tubs and showers.
- The gypsum core will not support combustion or transmit temperatures greatly in excess of 212°F (100°C) until completely calcined, a slow process.
- UL Classified for fire resistance, surface burning characteristics, and noncombustibility.
- Less than 5% water absorption per ASTM C 473.
- Expansion and contraction under normal atmospheric changes are negligible.
Gold Bond® XP® Ultra-Shield FS® 3/4" Gypsum Board has achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification.
