About

Continental Mold Defense Drywall is mold resistant drywall designed for use in interior wall and ceiling applications and offers 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.

Applications

Continental Mold Defense Drywall 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 (not for use in shower and bathtub areas). Continental Mold Defense 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.

Fire Resistance Notice

While Continental Mold Defense Drywall has some inherent fire-resistant characteristics, this product should not be used to provide the levels of fire resistance required by various building codes and standards. For fire resistance, use Continental Firecheck® or Mold Defense Type X products. When properly sealed and used in a certified sound-rated assembly, Mold Defense will contribute to required sound transmission classification (STC) values.
