Knauf Sheetrock® Wetstop™ (with Airtough™ technology) plasterboard is manufactured from a specially formulated moisture-resistant core encased in recycled face and back papers that form a high strength composite design.
Specially formulated with Knauf’s AirTough™ technology, it is capable of removing hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOC) such as formaldehyde, thus conditioning the air quality that is crucial for healthcare environment.
- Features AirTough™ technology, removing up to 70% of formaldehyde
- Specially treated gypsum core that provides additional protection from dampness
- Complies with international standards such as BS EN 520 or equivalent local standard for physical properties classification and moisture resistance for gypsum boards as well as BS 476 for non-combustibility
- Excellent acoustic properties when assembled in systems for commercial projects.
- Designed to meet regulatory requirements for wet area applications such as bathrooms, pantries, and kitchen areas.
- Areas where moisture-resistance is desired.
- Can be used as an interior tile substrate in dry location or areas with limited water exposure.
- Capable of removing up to 70% of formaldehyde: creates an anti-VOC environment and conditions the air around us
Knauf AirTough™ Technology
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are found everywhere and can be produced by most of our household or building products. Invisible to our naked eye, some VOCs such as formaldehyde are harmful to the human health and environment. Although VOCs are not immediately toxic, long-term exposure may cause ill health effects.
The AirTough™ technology comprises a specially formulated core that drives the destruction of VOCs, helping to condition the air that we breathe. Capable of removing up to 70% of formaldehyde in the air, it helps to build an anti-VOC setting in the healthcare environment for the overall well-being of both practitioners and patients.
The formaldehyde absorption tests are conducted to the precise methods, limitations and uncertainty as recognised under the ISO 16000-23 : 2010 standard and Eurofins Scientific reports.
