A factory-produced, 1200mm wide custom panel for applications requiring fire resistance is called Skyrock® Fire Rated (FR) Gypsum Board. The boards are constructed from non-combustible glass-fiber reinforced gypsum that has been mixed with particular additives, and they are covered in both a strong liner paper on the back and a thick, natural-finish paper on the front. The face paper is folded over the long edges to strengthen and protect the core. The ends have a clean finish and a square cut. The USG Middle East sheetrock® brand's recessed (tapered) long edges of panels enable seams to be strengthened and covered with jointing solutions.
When priming and decorating with paint, texture, or wallcovering, follow the directions for the individual goods you're using. Before using USG Middle East Sheetrock® Brand All Purpose Joint Compound, all surfaces must be fully dry, dust-free, and matte. Before decorating, a prime layer of Sheetrock® Tuff-Hide Primer-Surfacer should be applied if a Level 5 finish is required. In areas where gypsum panel walls and ceilings will be painted with a gloss paint (eggshell, semi gloss, or gloss) and/or exposed to strong artificial or natural side lighting, gypsum panel surfaces should be skim-coated with USG All Purpose Joint Compound or primed with Sheetrock® Tuff-Hide Primer-Surfacer to equalize suction before painting.
