This specification covers gypsum boards which include the following:

  • gypsum wallboard for use on walls, ceilings, or partitions and that affords a surface suitable to receive decoration;
  • predecorated gypsum board for use as the finished surfacing for walls, ceilings, or partitions;
  • gypsum backing board, coreboard, and shaftliner board for use as a base in multilayer systems or as a gypsum stud or core in semisolid or solid gypsum board partitions, or in shaft wall assemblies;
  • water-resistant gypsum backing board to be used as a base for the application of ceramic or plastic tile on walls or ceilings;
  • exterior gypsum soffit board for exterior soffits and carport ceilings that are completely protected from contact with liquid water;
  • gypsum sheathing board for use as sheathing on buildings;
  • gypsum base for veneer plaster;
  • gypsum lath for use as a base for gypsum plaster application;
  • and gypsum ceiling board for interior ceilings and walls.

Gypsum board shall consist of a noncombustible core, essentially gypsum, surfaced with paper bonded to the core.

The specimens shall comply with the following required physical properties:

  • core, end, and edge hardness;
  • straightness of the edges and ends;
  • length;
  • tapered edge depth;
  • flexural strength;
  • humidified deflection;
  • nail pull resistance;
  • permeance;
  • water resistance;
  • and surface water absorption.
