Use Gold Bond® eXP® Interior Extreme® AR Gypsum Panels for interior applications in areas prone to surface abrasion and indentation, including corridors, entryways, lobby areas, and warehouses.
These gypsum panels consist of an abuse-, moisture- and mold-resistant gypsum core encased in a coated, specially designed fiberglass mat on the face and back sides. In addition to providing moisture and mold resistance, the AR panel has a denser core and an enhanced glass mat for increased resistance to indentation and abrasion. The glass mat is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core.
