1.1 This specification covers the factory-laminated gypsum panel products designed either for use on walls, ceilings, or partitions as part of a sound-control system or for use as a gypsum stud or core in semisolid or solid gypsum board partitions. 1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard
This standard is needed because the products are in production and do not properly fall within the scope of an existing standard.
