ASTM WK17338

    Revision of C1396 / C1396M - 06a Standard Specification for Gypsum Board

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1396 / C1396M - 14a

    Developed by Subcommittee: C11.01 | Committee C11 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Create a standard definition for mold resistant gypsum board. Currently, there are several gypsum board and gypsum panel products on the market that are promoted as being mold resistant. However, there is no standard specification for what test method, procedures or performance levels are required to qualify as mold resistant. There is a need to standardize the use and meaning of this term.
