Water-resistant plasterboard Glasroc H from Gyproc of Saint Gobain
Glasroc H board is a revolution in the wet area application as it provides outstanding performance in areas exposed to water such as kitchens, bathrooms and semi-exposed areas. This new-gen plasterboard has been manufactured with the GRG technology (glass reinforced gypsum) having glass fibre reinforced gypsum core and encased with specially treated hydrophobic glass mat liners. The front and back surface is reinforced with glass mats that provide an excellent water and mold resistance.
Given the versatility of this paperless gypsum board, it can be utilised in residential, commercial, retail, hospitality and healthcare spaces. The product offers high resistance to water and humidity, reduces passage of water even while providing vapour permeability to the structure, has higher density than regular plasterboard, and provides enhanced acoustic performance. Its installation is twice the speed of cement board. Specially designed for tiling, Glasroc H can take tiles up to a weight of 60kg per sqm directly, and can be jointed and finished to provide a decorative paint finish.
Venkat Subramanian, Regional CEO, Construction Products India & MD - Gyproc India, said, "Gyproc has been spearheading the drywall technology in India with customer centric innovative products and solutions. The launch of Glasroc H is an important addition to our robust portfolio of gypsum-based high-performance plasterboards. This product is best suited for wet area applications and quite superior to all traditional solutions. This innovative product will be instrumental in upgrading the market by setting new paradigms in performance, functionality and aesthetics."
