5/8″ Interior Panels

PABCO® Gypsum continues to expand its family of glass faced products with the launch of 5/8" PABCO GLASS® Interior. With the addition of its fire-resistance rated glass mat panel, PABCO® Gypsum now offers interior glass faced wallboard for extended moisture resistance for both commercial and residential applications. The new interior panel complements the company’s current glass faced product offering, which includes 1/2" PABCO Glass® Interior, PABCO GLASS® Sheathing and PABCO GLASS® Shaftliner.


PABCO GLASS® Interior gypsum panels are specially formulated to withstand extended exposure under normal weather conditions up to one year, thus allowing for installation prior to full building enclosure. Its mold and water-resistant gypsum core encased in a glass fiber mat provides increased resistance to moisture compared to paper-faced gypsum board. The product scores a 10 for mold resistance, the highest rating when tested in accordance to ASTM D3273, Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold on the Surface of Interior Coatings in an Environmental Chamber.


The naturally fire-resistant, 5/8" Type X proprietary gypsum core is also noncombustible, dimensionally stable, and resists warping, sagging and buckling. The glass faced panel can be finished and painted just like paper-faced gypsum board making the finishing process simple. When finished per GA-214 Recommended Levels of Board Finish, it will achieve the same desired finish level as paper faced products.
