XP® Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board with Sporgard® was developed as an improved moisture resistant board, offering the same advantages of a traditional moisture resistant board with added mold resistance in the core and paper. XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board panels consist of a specially treated, fire-resistant, Type X gypsum core encased in a heavy mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled, PURPLE® paper on the face side and a heavy, mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled, gray paper on the back side.
The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, and the ends are square-cut and finished smooth. Long edges of the panels are tapered.
XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board features a Type X core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in tested systems.
Use it on both wood- and steel-framed construction for interior wall and ceiling applications.
Use it as a tile backer board in dry areas or areas with limited moisture, such as toilet or sink areas, and wall and ceilings areas above tile in tubs and showers.
