K+ Plasterboards (Gypsum Boards)
Plasterboards are used for construction of suspended ceilings, partition walls, cladding walls and fire-resistant linings.
Introduction / Different types of K+ Plasterboards
K+ plasterboards are paper faced boards with a dense gypsum core. The boards’ surface and longitudinal edges are covered with special paper. Each type of plasterboards has a special specification and function.
K+ Plasterboards are produced and available in four main types: Regular (RG), Moisture Resistant (MR), Fire Resistant (FR) and lastly Fire & Moisture resistant (FM). K+ plasterboards are produced in full compliance with EN 520 standard.
K+ Regular Plasterboard (RG) or (GKB)
Regular plasterboards are generally used in drywall applications such as partition walls, cladding walls, and suspended ceilings not in direct contact with water, vapor, moisture or fire. These boards have a beige color appearance.
K+ Moisture Resistant Plasterboard (MR) or (GKBI)
Moisture Resistant boards are used in wet applications such as kitchens and bathrooms with their gypsum core specially designed for superior resistance against fungi, moisture and mold. This type of plasterboard has a green color paper facing.
K+ Fire Resistant Plasterboard (FR) or (GKF)
Fire Resistant plasterboards are used in applications where fire protection requirements are needed such as covering columns and steel beams and their gypsum core is reinforced with special fibers. These boards have a pink color facing.
K+ Fire & Moisture Resistant Plasterboard (FM) or (GKFI)
Fire and Moisture Resistant plasterboards are made of a gypsum core that contains both glass fibers and moisture-resistant materials. These types of plasterboards are commonly used in applications where fire and moisture resistance properties are required at the same time such as MEP ducts or elevator wells. These boards have a green paper color facing.
