Sheetrock® Brand Gypsum Board Mold Tough™ Type C - SGBMT127R2440

USG Sheetrock® Brand Mold Tough® Panels Firecode® Type C are available in 12.7 mm and 15.9 mm thicknesses. These panels feature a noncombustible,moisture and mold-resistant gypsum core that is encased in moisture- and mold-resistant, 100% recycled green face and brown back papers. When tested in accordance with ASTM D3273, Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold on the Surface of Interior Coatings in an Environmental Chamber, the panels meet or exceed ASTM C1396 specifications. The long edges of the panels are tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with USG Sheetrock® Brand joint treatment systems. The panels are UL Classified for fire resistance and can be used in any UL Design in which Type C panels are listed. On the face along the long edge of each panel, the UL Type Designation is printed for easy identification by building inspector.

Specifications
Physical Properties:
  • Physical Properties: Please refer to the product data in the Technical Data Sheet (TDS)
  • Moisture and mold resistance: Per ASTM C473, the average water absorption for is not greater than 5% by weight after two-hour immersion
  • In independent lab tests conducted on at the time of manufacture per ASTM D3273, Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold on the Surface of Interior Coatings in an Environmental Chamber, the panels meet or exceed ASTM C1396 specifications
  • This ASTM lab test may not accurately represent the mold performance of building materials in actual use. Given unsuitable project conditions during storage, installation or after completion, any building material can be overwhelmed by mold. To manage the growth of mold, the best and most cost-effective strategy is to protect building products form water exposure during storage and installation, and after completion of the building. This can be accomplished by using good design and construction practices.
