CSR Gyprock has developed a hypoallergenic plasterboard called Gyprock Sensitive. With an estimated 2.3 million Australians living with asthma, and one in three suffering allergies, Gyprock Sensitive offers enhanced mould-resistance and improved moisture-resistance for walls and ceilings during home-renovation or extension. It is installed exactly the same way as other plasterboards using any of Gyprock’s jointing compounds. Its mould-resistance is due to a powerful but gentle antifungal agent throughout its core, which penetrates the paper and subsequent decorative coating. The plasterboard core also contains a special wax emulsion, which makes it resistant to moisture. Modern houses are more airtight with lower ventilation; and often have smaller rooms; which can all contribute to moisture build up. Increased steam and humidity provide ideal conditions for mould and mildew growth, making Gyprock Sensitive an appropriate choice for wet areas such as the bathroom and laundry.
