Sheetrock® Brand Mold Tough® AR Firecode® X Panels (UL Type AR) are 15.9 mm (5/8 in.) Type X panels designed and tested to offer greater resistance to surface abrasion, indentation and impact damage with moisture and mould resistance. These abuse-resistant panels feature a noncombustible, moisture- and mould-resistant gypsum core encased in moisture- and mould-resistant green face and brown back papers. When tested in accordance with ASTM D3273, Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold on the Surface of Interior Coatings in an Environmental Chamber, the panels meet or exceed ASTM C1396 specifications. The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core and the ends are cut square and even. The long edges of the panels are tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with CGC Sheetrock® or Synko® Brand joint treatment systems. The panels are UL Classified for fire resistance and can be used in any UL/ULC Design in which Type AR panels are listed. On the face, on the long edge of each panel, the UL Type Designation is printed for easy identification by building inspectors.
