CertainTeed Regular Gypsum Boards are an interior gypsum board that consists of a solid set, fire-resistive gypsum core enclosed in ivory colored face paper and liner back paper.

ABOUT
CertainTeed Regular Gypsum Boards are an interior gypsum board that consist of a solid set, fire-resistive gypsum core enclosed in ivory colored face paper and liner back paper. Long edges are slightly tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with joint tape and joint compound. CertainTeed Regular Gypsum Boards are available in 1/4", 3/8" and 5/8" widths and a variety of lengths. For 1/2" widths check out CertainTeed Easi-Lite.

APPLICATIONS
CertainTeed Regular Gypsum Board is used for interior walls and ceilings in standard residential or commercial applications. It can be used for new construction or renovations over wood or steel framing. It is typically nailed or screwed to studs spaced 16" (400 mm) or 24" (610 mm) o.c., but can be applied by laminating or with the use of an adhesive.

CertainTeed 54" (1370 mm) Regular is intended for horizontal application on tall walls, eliminating one horizontal joint. Fewer joints means less time spent finishing and a smoother, flatter wall. For 9' walls, two courses of CertainTeed 54" (1370 mm) Regular would be used. For 8'6" walls, one course of CertainTeed 54" (1370 mm) Regular would be used in combination with one course of 48" (1220 mm) CertainTeed
Regular gypsum board. This eliminates the taping and filling of one joint over the total wall circumference.

ADVANTAGES
Uniformly flat, attractive appearance; no shadows.

  • High edge hardness.
  • No wavy edges, warps, bows or deformities.
  • Uniform high-strength cores eliminate crumbling, cracking.
  • Edge tapers consistent to form perfect joints.
  • Excellent thermal barrier and sound attenuation qualities.
