  • Strength

    Improves flexural strength by +28% and shear strength by +13% vs. un-reinforced wallboard.

  • Fire Safety

    Meets UL 263 and CAN/ULC S101 standards for fire endurance testing.

Ease of Processing

Stable fiber dosage performance in customer vibratory feed systems, leading to improved consistency of fiber content in wallboard. <br> 66% reduced drift in target fiber feed rate over time - 50% reduction in fiber feed rate variability over time. <br> (Illustration: Improved Stability and Reduced Variability in Fiber Dosage Rate.)

Ease of Processing

More Uptime

The product helps with reduced line downtime, reduced scrap rate and reduced fiber feed maintenance. <br> (Illustration: Reduced Fiber Build-up in Vibratory Feed Systems.)
