Gypsum Board Facing
Gypsum facer is a glass mat fabric that is designed to be used as a replacement for the traditional paper facer that is on many gypsum boards.
Replacing paper facings with glass mat facings not only removes a potential food source for mold, but it also improves its impact, fire and humidity resistance. These paperless boards are ideal for use in high moisture areas such as bathrooms and basements and are installed the same way as traditional paper-faced gypsum boards.
Glass mat products are available for use with both interior and exterior panels.
