Fiberglass mat gypsum sheathing is a new material compared to other sheathing, and people are not so familiar with this sheathing. This sheathing product uses mature fiberglass mat technology embedded in the gypsum core to help support the EIFS industry, the design community and contractors. As the demand for air, water and insulation barriers continues to expand, its advantages can strengthen the industry.
With the adoption of the 2012 international energy conservation regulations, EIFS is in a unique position to fully comply with the new standards. As the demand for dimensional stability in high performance energy systems increases, the use of glass mat gypsum jackets in EIFS assemblies is becoming increasingly necessary. With the new American heating, the Institute of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers requires continuous insulation outside the building, and a fully adherent weather barrier, the dimensional stability of this substrate is more important than ever. So get the best application in the EIFS industry.
