Moisture Resistant (MR)

Moisture Resistant (MR)


Gypsemna's Moisture Resistant Gypsum Plasterboards have the inherent properties of regular plasterboards as well as accrued moisture resistance. The property is due to the specific additives such as water repellent agents in the non-combustible, mechanically stable aerated gypsum core. This core is encased in heavy duty Kraft paper liner on either side of the board. These boards inhibit moisture absorption in the gypsum core when used for lining interior walls and ceilings, which may be exposed to a high degree of moisture.
