Regular Gypsum Board
Gypsum board is one of many gypsum panel products, defined in ASTM C11, Standard Terminology Relating to Gypsum and Related Building Materials and Systems, as ?the general name for a family of sheet products consisting essentially of gypsum.?
This term includes gypsum board, glass mat gypsum panels, abuse-resistant, and impact-resistant gypsum panels and gypsum shaft liner panels.
Due to its inherent fire confrontation, gypsum board, commonly known as drywall is the best building material for wall, ceiling, and partition systems in housing, institutional, and commercial structures. Designed to provide a monolithic surface when joints and fastener heads are covered with a joint treatment system, gypsum products also provide sound control, economy, flexibility, quality, and convenience.
