GYPSUM BOARDS

Used to make interior walls and ceilings, our gypsum boards are the result of over 100 years of scientific experimentation and innovation success. Cleaner, faster and easily handled by fewer workers, we have installed more than 725 million square meters of gypsum boards worldwide.

COMPOUNDS

Used for jointing, bonding, skimming and creating textured finishes for building interiors, we boast a broad range of products for compounds with our extensive capabilities to formulate solutions according to your requirements and preferences.

CEILINGS

With over 50 years of experience, we are a premier acoustic panel and specialty ceilings innovator that also enhances overall aesthetics. Our portfolio includes acoustical, gypsum tile, metal, and specialty ceilings as well as both standard and seismically rated suspension systems.

SUBSTRATES

Compared to traditional wet wall solutions, our substrates are lightweight (thereby reducing installation costs and speeds up construction) and versatile - making it ideal for unique building designs as they are able to be curved and applied on different finishes including paint, tile, stone and texture.

METAL FRAMING

Our range of metal components and profiles allows construction of drywalls and ceilings to be done faster, more accurately and cleaner than conventional methods. Also, this innovative framing can be engineered to suit a job site’s requirements while achieving global construction standards.
