Product Description

This presentation defines Abuse-Resistant, Impact-Resistant, and Shaft Liner gypsum board via category and associated test methods. Each test method is described in detail including graphics. We’ll review the advantages of each board type along with the specific building applications. We’ll also compare the estimate costs relative to the various wall construction assemblies.

The presentation concludes with a close examination of ASTM C 1629 which classifies the three levels of abuse resistance. Minimum and maximum performance measurements determine the rationale for specific building utilization, basis of specification, and budgets.
