Basic Outreach of the Plasterboard Market
Plasterboard, known by various names such as Drywall and wallboard is used to build inner walls and ceiling in inhabiting areas such as residents, offices etc. It is made from calcium sulphate dihydrate known commonly as gypsum with or without additives and normally pressed between a facer and a backer. Earlier, conventional methods of leather and plaster were used. In the United Kingdom, this revolution began in late 1930s.
These are wooden boards or planks placed horizontally across the ceiling joints. With time, these wooden laths have been discontinued and have been replaced by rock lath, which is a type of gypsum wallboard, holed in a systematic manner. In addition to rock lath, there are various types of metal lath, which is categorized according to weight, type of ribbing, and whether the lath is galvanized. Metal lathing, attached by tie wires using lathers’ nippers is a very effective and new way of working out. The innovation in this industry has come from that fact that lath and plaster have been mostly replaced with solid drywall or plasterboard since it is quicker and less pricey to install, other uses being similar.
Australian plasterboard market leader, CSR Gyprock has launched a new Supaceil with Optimised Core technology. This optimised Core Technology would be a next step in the innovation of plasterboard industry. This improvement away from outdated usage is a revolutionary development enabling an advanced performance-to-weight ratio for plasterboard, which means a greater breaking strength can be achieved in a substantially lighter board as well as exceeding the performance requirements of general standards. by incorporating glass fibre to reinforce the core. Since its introduction, Supaceil has continued to set the standard when it comes to plasterboard. With the introduction of Supaceil glass fibre was mixed in plasterboard to reinforce the core. This technology, combined with the use of a stronger, thicker face paper, delivers considerable feat benefits. The new product greatly improved; is lighter making it easier to lift for better sheet manoeuvrability and improved flex; the face appearance is now more consistent so a more specialized finish can be achieved; score and snap has been significantly improved to allow for crisper edges and cleaner cuts and the board has been designed with glass fibre. The Gyproc plasterboard product range provides solutions for enhanced moisture, fire, acoustic, impact and thermal performance. These plasterboards can be used for a range of high performance applications in commercial, industrial and residential buildings, as well as the off-site sector. Improvement in this would be seen as increased versatility and performance. It would mean greater potency and survival. Companies like USG Boral are continually investing and innovating in sustainable methods.
