ToughRock® Mold-Guard™ Gypsum Boards

ToughRock Mold-Guard Gypsum Boards

ToughRock® Mold-Guard™, Mold-Guard Fireguard X™ and Fireguard X Abuse-Resistant Gypsum Boards are designed for use in interior wall and ceiling drywall applications. Featuring 100% recycled, green treated face paper and a moisture-resistant core, this wallboard provides extra protection against mold and mildew compared to traditional paper-faced gypsum wallboard products in high humidity areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements and laundry rooms. This board may be used in wet areas behind tile, such as tub and shower areas, when C1396, Section 7 is allowed by local building code in such applications.*

No special tools are needed. The board scores and snaps easily. With proper surface preparation, it will accommodate a variety of decorative treatments such as paint and wallpaper.

ToughRock Mold-Guard Gypsum Board has a noncombustible (as described and tested in accordance with ASTM E 136), dimensionally stable gypsum core. It has 100% recycled paper coverings on the face, back and long edges; with a green face paper. When tested, as manufactured, in accordance with ASTM D 3273 ("Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold on the Surface of Interior Coatings in an Environmental Chamber"), ToughRock Mold-Guard Gypsum Board has scored a 10**, the highest level of performance for mold resistance under the ASTM D 3273 test method.

These products have achieved GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD GOLD Certification. GREENGUARD Certified products are certified to GREENGUARD standards for low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions into indoor air during product usage.

* Georgia-Pacific recommends DensShield® Tile Backer for tile applications in wet areas such as showers where 2006 or later IBC or IRC are referenced.

** The score of 10, in the ASTM D 3273 test, indicates no mold growth in a 4-week controlled laboratory test. The mold resistance of any building product when used in actual job site conditions may not produce the same results as were achieved in the controlled, laboratory setting. No material can be considered mold proof. When properly used with good design, handling and construction practices, ToughRock® Mold-Guard™ Gypsum Board provides increased mold resistance compared to standard paper-faced wallboard products.
