CertainTeed has introduced a cost-effective gypsum board that improves acoustical performance
CertainTeed has introduced a cost-effective gypsum board that improves acoustical performance and offers a high level of mold and fire resistance. The SilentFX has achieved a high sound transmission class rating of 50 and higher, and allows building professionals to achieve acoustical control with less material than traditional gypsum boards. The product consists of Green Glue, a viscoelastic polymer, that is sandwiched between two Type X fire resistant gypsum boards. Specially engineered to provide enhanced protection against moisture and mold with M2Tech technology, SilentFX is GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certified. SilentFX gypsum boards are designed for use on interior walls and ceilings and can be used for new construction or renovations over wood or steel framing. The product is easy to install and finish in a conventional fashion.
