Weighing 30% less than standard 15.9 mm (5/8 in.), CGC Sheetrock® Brand UltraLight Firecode® 30 (UL Type FC30) panels are easier to lift, carry and install. These panels are ideal for interior applications where 15.9 mm (5/8 in.) Type X panels are not required. Formulated for comparable strength and performance, these panels feature an engineered core encased in proprietary 100% recycled face and back papers for a high strength-to-weight ratio composite design. 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.
