Mats replace gypsum board

OCV Non-Woven Technologies is transforming the gypsum board market with the introduction of new value-added glass mats and coated mats which are replacing traditional paper-faced gypsum boards. Coated fibreglass gypsum products are used for roofing, exterior, and interior building applications. The key attribute of glass-based gypsum board is that it greatly reduces issues with mold/ mildew and insect infestations due to the lack of organic material that serves as a potential food source. In addition, coated fibreglass gypsum offers superior weather resistance allowing for extended exposure warranties. OCV Non-Woven Technologies leverages proven technology in glass fibre and glass mat manufacturing with novel coating formulations to improve product performance while reducing basis weight and cost.
