National Gypsum introduces Gold Bond® brand e2XP™ Sheathing. Named for its capability to endure extended exposure (e2) to the elements and produced in the purple signature color of National Gypsum’s XP® line, e 2XP Sheathing is a mold- and moisture-resistant exterior panel.
Made with an enhanced moisture and mold resistant core and coated fiberglass facer, e 2XP Sheathing can withstand up to 12 months of exposure to typical weather conditions.
The sheathing is designed to attach to the outside of sidewall and soffit framing as a water resistant underlayment for various external materials and can be used in both wood and metal stud construction. It also can be used as a substrate for air- and water-resistant barriers, and as a component in curtainwall or EIFS.
