Lafarge Mold Defense Type X
is a gypsum board enhanced with glass fibers to offer greater strength and fire protection for interior walls and ceilings, and enhanced protection against mold and mildew that can cause deterioration and/or stains. It contains a non-combustible, mold-, mildew- and moisture-treated gypsum core with treated paper facings on the front (green), back and long edges. This product will accommodate a variety of decorative treatments after proper surface preparation.
Lafarge Mold Defense Type X is moisture-resistant and can be used in tile backer applications in dry areas or in areas where a degree of moisture may be expected, such as bathrooms and laundry rooms if permitted by local building codes. Lafarge Mold Defense Type X can be used in building applications that require direct mechanical attachment to wood or metal wall and ceiling frames, or attachment to existing surfaces using fasteners or adhesives. It may also be used as a thermal barrier in roof assemblies when specified by the roofing manufacturer.
To ensure optimum Type X fire-resistant performance, follow recommended installation procedures. When used in a certified sound-rated assembly, Mold Defense Type X will also contribute to required sound transmission classification (STC) values.
