FIREBLOC® Type C gypsum wallboard is the preferred product in the industry due to its consistently high quality standards. Additional properties enhance the core of this type X wallboard to achieve superior performance when used in specific fire rated assemblies. The fire-resistant gypsum core is encased in 100% recycled natural-finish paper on the face side and sturdy liner paper on the back side. 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, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with a joint compound system.
FIREBLOC Type C wallboard is available in 1/2" and 5/8" thicknesses and in a variety of lengths for standard construction uses.
Gypsum wallboard manufactured by American Gypsum contains no asbestos.
FIREBLOC Type C wallboard is used as a covering material for interior walls and ceilings in residential and commercial applications that often require specific fire rated assemblies. It is designed for direct attachment by screws and or nails to wood or metal framing. With joints covered, FIREBLOC Type C gypsum wallboard will resist the passage of smoke.
