ToughRock by Georgia-Pacific Gypsum

July 26, 2011

Light weight, heavy impact.

Georgia-Pacific Gypsum introduces an upgrade to the ToughRock line of paper-faced gypsum panels.

Due to the product’s improved impact resistance, the boards are less subject to pre- and post-installation wear and tear. Among other attributes of the improved product are:

  • Greater flexural strength, meaning the boards are less prone to breakage during handling and installation;
  • Sag resistance for ceiling use, which means one product can be used on walls and ceilings. The board conforms to applicable ASTM C 1396 standards;
  • Potential reduction in environmental impacts from transportation due to lighter weight products.
