DensArmor Plus® Impact-Resistant Interior Panel
DensArmor Plus® Impact-Resistant Interior Panel is a non-paper-faced gypsum panel that is ideal for use in interior areas likely to be exposed to incidental moisture where added abuse, abrasion and impact resistance is desired. The product is ideal for high traffic, high occupancy areas subject to wall or ceiling abuse such as schools, dormitories, offices, hospitals and many public buildings.
The panel consists of a dense, noncombustible, moisture-resistant gypsum core, a strong layer of embedded fiberglass mesh, and an abuse-resistant, coated fiberglass-mat surface. In addition, when tested in accordance with ASTM C 1629, the panel offers superior soft-body and hard-body impact resistance.

DensArmor Plus Impact-Resistant Interior Panel is highly resistant to the growth of mold when tested, as manufactured, per ASTM D 3273.* The panel resists surface abrasion, indentation and impact punctures in high-traffic environments. The moisture-resistant fiberglass mats and core resist warping, rippling and buckling. The core of the product is denser than regular gypsum wallboard and is reinforced with glass fibers, increasing the product's strength and offering improved dimensional stability when compared with regular gypsum wallboard.
It is designed for direct attachment with screws or nails to wood and metal framing or existing surfaces, and may be used as a covering material for flat or curved structures. The field of the board can be finished in the same steps as regular gypsum wallboard. It is manufactured with fiberglass mats with a tapered edge to receive joint treatment.

* 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, DensArmor Plus impact-resistant panel provides increased mold resistance compared to standard paper-faced wallboard products.
