ATLANTA - Georgia-Pacific Gypsum LLC announced that two of its premier Dens interior gypsum panel products have passed the industry’s most stringent mold resistance test. DensArmor Plus High-Performance Interior Panel and DensShield Tile Backer each passed the 12-week test, conducted in accordance with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s ASTM D 6329 protocol.

The test - three times longer and much more rigorous than ASTM D 3273, the current industry standard - was conducted by an independent third party, RTI International, at its facilities in Research Triangle Park, N.C., between February and June 2009.

No other gypsum products manufacturer has announced test results showing zero mold growth for 12 full weeks for any product.

“These results confirm what we have long known - that our Dens products lead the industry in mold and moisture resistance performance,” said Kendall Clark, Research & Development Program Manager, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum. “Architects and builders can take comfort in the fact that the mold-resistant properties of Dens products save time and money during construction, and also ensure the sustainability of structures.”
