ToughRock® Fireguard® Abuse-Guard® Gypsum Board
ToughRock® Fireguard® Abuse-Guard® gypsum board is an abuse-resistant Type X product (as defined in ASTM C 1396). It is designed for wall assemblies in high-traffic areas where surface durability and indentation resistance are especially important, such as schools, hospitals, corrections facilities and offices.
This board consists of a noncombustible (as described and tested in accordance with ASTM E 136), dimensionally stable gypsum core formed between a face layer of heavy, smooth, abuse-resistant paper and a back layer of heavy liner paper. The heavy-duty face paper, along with an enhanced cored, offer greater resistance to abrasion, rubbing, scraping, gouging and indentation and provides a superior surface for decoration.
The board has been classified by Underwriters Laboratories LLC (UL) and included in assembly designs invested by UL for hourly fire resistance ratings. Search the assemblies library for details.
