1 Based upon survey of CMD Group project specifications from 01/Jan/17 – 31/Dec/2017
2 When tested, as manufactured, in accordance with ASTM D3273, DensGlass Sheathing has scored a 10, the highest level of performance for mould resistance under the ASTM D3273 test method.
The score of 10, in the ASTM D3273 test, indicates no mould growth in a 4-week controlled laboratory test. The mould resistance of any building product when used in actual job site conditions may not produce the same results as were achieved in the controlled, laboratory setting. No material can be considered mould proof. When properly used with good design, handling and construction practices, Dens® Brand gypsum products provide increased mould resistance compared to standard paper-faced wallboard.
