Mold Resistant Drywall Products
From LafargeLafarge introduces an improvement to their line of mold resistant drywall products, Mold Defense™. Designed for use in interior applications, Mold Defense protects against mold, mildew and now offers the added benefit of moisture resistance.
The product offers the combined protection against mold, mildew and moisture all in one. Lafarge envisions that the market will move toward replacing its 1/2" Watercheck and 5/8" FireWatercheck products with the Mold Defense products.
Mold Defense products are available in 1/2" and 5/8", and feature a non-combustible mold, mildew and moisture treated gypsum core and treated paper facings on the front (green), back and long edges. These products provide extra resistance against the formation of mold compared to ordinary drywall products provided proper building and installation practices are followed.
