Re: Mold Resistant Sheetrock?


Alot of greenboard is now mold AND moisture resistant. The core and the paper are both treated so screws and nails dont void the treament.

It is called XP and it is Purple (Barney Board), instead of green.

Re: Mold Resistant Sheetrock?


Borate has been used for decades in Europe to stop dry rot and termites and even in the USA it has been around for at least 10 years. The glycol is the carrier to help it penetrate the wood.

Seems like some people in construction have 20 years of experience that really translates into repeating what they learned their first year for the next 19. An old saying about insanity is repeating the same process and expecting a different outcome. When I come across a problem I try to do more than just replace what was done the first time around 30 years ago by a spec home builder only concerned with making it through the warranty period.

Except for the green board thats green instead of being purple rather than green. Or blue. Or gray.Or brown. There are several manufacturers making Mold/Moisture resistant rock.Each one makes it a different color. People tend to call any moisture resistant board "green" despite its color. But some is actually green. The names vary which causes some confusion at times. Then you have the Fire/Moisture and Fire/Mold/Moisture resistant and a whole other rainbow and brand names.

Re: Mold Resistant Sheetrock?

im not really sure but i think you need to use plastic vinyl beads and mesh tape durabond or else your just putting paper on the rock anyways . also isnt mold an air born spore anyways >?? this is pretty new to me but just did a basement using densarmor and mesh and vinyl everywhere .. i itched for three days ... and that was only taping it cant even think how much it itches if yiou have to hang it. i dont think this is proven science yet anyways , need years before we will know foresure if it actually works like claimed.
