American Gypsum introduces LIGHTROC lightweight drywall
LightRoc® gypsum wallboard is lighter in weight than traditional 1/2” drywall. The wallboard panels consist of a fire-resistant gypsum core that is encased in natural-finish paper on the face side and sturdy liner paper on the back side which are both 100% recycled. 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.
