Is this rated for 1/2 hour fire rating?

Asked by: RamDas
Hi, Thank you for your question. The product itself does not have a ½” hour fire rating. The fire rating depends on the assembly itself. For example one layer of 5/8 Type X Dens® Glass on the outside of the building with wood studs and 5/8” Type X wallboard on the inside would give that assembly a 1 hour fire rating

Can I use this product in an interior bathroom that required a moisture/mold and fire rating resistant?

Asked by: Libra
I would recommend the use of GEORGIA-PACIFIC DENSARMOR PLUS INTERIOR PANELS 5/8" TYPE X. This product has a smoother glass mat face with tapered edges allowing for installation similar to regular gypsum board.
