AquaBloc® (water-resistant) gypsum wallboard is a specially processed product, intended to provide a moisture resistant base for the adhesive application of ceramic or plastic tile and plastic-faced wall panels in limited wet areas, e.g., bathrooms, powder rooms, kitchens, laundry, and utility rooms. AquaBloc is manufactured using a 100% recycled green face paper, treated to resist moisture; a water-resistant gypsum core, and a sturdy liner back paper also treated to resist moisture. (The water-resistant face paper is tinted green so as to make it easily distinguishable from traditional wallboard) The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, with the ends being square-cut and finished smooth. Long edges of the panels are tapered so joints can be treated in a normal manner where AquaBloc extends beyond the tiled area.
AquaBloc is available in: 1/2" panels available with a non-rated moisture resistant core and a 5/8" FireBloc (Type X) moisture resistant core for use in fire-rated assemblies.
