Glass-Mat Products

September 2015

USG Corporation announces the completion of its glass-mat portfolio with the addition of 4 new products.
A new exterior product is USG Securock® Brand Glass-Mat Sheathing. This high-performance sheathing is for warranted protection from the elements. It has a new and improved coated fiberglass facer mat to maximize coverage of air/water barrier systems.
New interior products are USG Sheetrock® Brand Glass-Mat Panels Mold Tough® AR and USG Sheetrock® Brand Glass-Mat Panels Mold Tough® VHI. The AR panels are high performance interior fiberglass-faced panels offering greater resistance to surface indentation and impact damage than standard gypsum panels. The VHI panels are an upgrade to abuse-resistant panels. They offer very high impact resistance and added resistance to surface indentation and impact damage.
The new wet area product is USG Durock™ Brand Glass-Mat Tile Backerboard. This is for use in areas where moisture- and mold-resistance is required. These panels combine cement board-like tile bond with the handling and ease of use of a gypsum panel.
All USG fiberglass-faced products feature an inorganic water-shedding glass-mat enclosure and a fire-resistant gypsum core that is treated to achieve the highest ASTM measured mold-resistance rating available.
The USG glass-mat portfolio, recognized by the distinctive green color, delivers a complete moisture- and mold-resistant solution.
