ToughRock® Moisture-Guard® and Fireguard® Moisture-Guard Gypsum Board
ToughRock® Moisture-Guard® and Fireguard® Moisture-Guard gypsum board are backing materials for ceramic and quarry tile, as well as plastic or metal tile in building construction. The product core contains a water-resistant additive that provides increased water resistance. It can be used for non-tile applications.
The surfacings on both faces and on the long edges are 100% recycled paper. The front face paper, which receives the tile finish, is a green color. The ends are square cut. The product is popularly known as "Greenboard."
Both ToughRock Moisture-Guard® and Fireguard® Moisture-Guard gypsum board have a noncombustible (as described and tested in accordance with ASTM E 136), dimensionally stable gypsum core.
Fireguard® Moisture-Guard Panels
A specially formulated gypsum core that includes glass fibers enables ToughRock Fireguard Moisture-Guard gypsum board to remain intact during a fire, helping to protect framing members and preventing or delaying the spread of fire. With joints covered, ToughRock Fireguard Moisture-Guard gypsum board will resist passage of smoke. The core has been reinforced with the addition of inorganic glass fibers, increasing its strength.
