Gypsum building materials often become wet, resulting in mold growth that leads to health and productivity impacts. A major source of mold growth is gypsum wallboard since nearly 90% of the interior finished surfaces of buildings are covered with gypsum products.【Get Price】


Regular gypsum wallboard sample sections were hung vertically and exposed to a continuous source of standing water 1.3 cm in depth. Both water absorption (measured in percent moisture content) and vertical movement (wicking height) were monitored within the wallboard over several days.【Get Price】
