Gold Bond 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. High Strength Lite Gypsum Board is a specialty gypsum board that is formulated to be 25 percent lighter than original 1/2 in. High Strength Gypsum Board. The result is a superior board that is lighter in weight, sag resistant and easier to handle. Because it can be installed on both walls and ceilings, it eliminates the need for two different types of gypsum board on the job.

  • Up to 25 percent lighter than original 1/2 in. high strength gypsum board
  • Can be used on both walls and ceilings
  • Lighter weight results in easier handling and transport
  • Excellent working properties including improved score and snap, reduced dust and improved strength to weight ratio
  • Excellent sag resistance; test results show overall sag on tested assembly to be equivalent to 5/8 in. Type X gypsum board
  • GridMarX guide marks are printed on the paper surface allowing the installer to quickly identify fastener lines for stud and joist framing as well as assist with quick identification of nail/screw patterns

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pre printed markings The pre-printed marking at 16" and 24" on this drywall saved me lots of time on the install and was a pleasant surprise. Also being made in Michigan was an extra bonus. I am very happy with this product and will look for it in the future on my next project August 18, 2014
