Weather Defense® Platinum Sheathing

Weather Defense® Platinum drywall is a moisture- and mold-resistant exterior wall sheathing designed to be covered by an exterior-finish cladding such as siding, brick, masonry veneer, or wire-lath stucco.

Weather Defense Platinum is specially formulated, noncombustible, moisture- and mold-resistant gypsum core is covered with a coated fiberglass mat on the board's front, back, and long edges. Weather Defense Platinum can be used in exterior

insulation and finish systems (EIFS) when specified by the EIFS manufacturer, and as a substrate for air- and water-resistant barriers, including wraps, self-adhesive membranes, and liquid-applied coatings.

Weather Defense Platinum offers superior resistance to normal weather conditions and will, in most applications, provide protection from exposure to the elements for up to 12 months (subject to the terms, conditions, and exclusions of Lafarge's limited warranty). Use of a flexible sealant to fill all exposed cutouts and joints will afford additional protection when construction is delayed for an extended period.

Applications:

Weather Defense Platinum is designed for exterior wall and soffit applications where resistance to normal weather conditions is desired. Applicable areas include:
Exterior wall sheathing;
Exterior soffits;
Exterior ceilings, underhangs, and carports; and
As a base for exterior cladding and EIFS.

DensGlass® Sheathing

Widely recognized by the GOLD color, DensGlass® gypsum sheathing has been standing strong in the commercial sheathing market for more than two decades and raised expectations among construction professionals about the performance of exterior sheathing panels. Fiberglass mat gypsum panel technology, pioneered by Georgia-Pacific, supplants the use of paper facings, and provides the industry with inherently mold-resistant* and moisture-resistant construction materials.
Georgia-Pacific DensGlass is the ideal sheathing board behind brick, siding, EIFS, stucco and other permanent claddings. Architects and builders, concerned about maintaining construction schedules despite bad weather, can specify DensGlass with confidence since product performance is not compromised by exposure to normal moisture conditions during construction.
