USG Boral SHEETROCK® Brand technology

Core Structure
USG Boral SHEETROCK® Brand StandardCORE Plasterboard has a more uniformly distributed core structure compared to standard plasterboard, due to careful and precise engineering that generates void structure (“bubbles”) in a variety of sizes that are optimized for strength. This allows for consistent distribution across every piece of plasterboard at a lower weight. Similar lightweight engineered materials appear in nature (the human bone) and in aerospace technology (the latest Airbus 380 and Bowing 787).

Crystal Structure
USG Boral SHEETROCK® Brand StandardCORE Plasterboard features fused gypsum crystal at the microscopic level to enhance the strength of the interlocking structure of the gypsum

Engineered Layer System
USG Boral SHEETROCK® Brand StandardCORE Plasterboard has enhanced strength on its tapered edges, improving the lifting, carrying, and usability. This is done by the careful
