SHEETROCK Mold Tough gypsum panels have improved water and mould
resistance over standard gypsum panels by treating the core and
surface. Independent lab tests were conducted on SHEETROCK Mold
Tough gypsum panels, at the time of manufacture per ASTM D 3273,
Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold on the
Surface of Interior Coatings in a Environmental Chamber." The panel
achieved a score of 10 with 10 being the highest rating. The panels
are also tested to CAN/ULC S 102 (flame spread 15 and smoke
developed is 0).
