Temple Inland's Gypsum Boards
From its beginnings in 1893 as a single sawmill, Temple-Inland has been dedicated to manufacturing outstanding products to meet customer needs.
Temple Inland supplies solid wood lumber, gypsum board and fiberboard products for residential and commercial construction projects. Whether for new construction or remodeling, do-it-yourselfers or professionals, the expanding product line provides a range of solutions to today’s building challenges.
Temple-Inland manufactures a full line of quality gypsum board products for fast, cost-efficient wall construction in both residential and commercial applications. Available in a range of dimensions and with a choice of special performance properties, this is one of its fastest growing product lines.
Interior Water-Resistant Drywall and Sheetrock
Made in the U.S.A. Temple-Inland has never imported any gypsum wallboard from China. Its full line of gypsum products is manufactured at facilities that they own and operate in the United States under their high quality standards. Temple Inland has a long history in this industry and has never received any complaints similar to the ones currently in the news attributed to Chinese wallboard.
Water-Resistant Gypsum Boards
Covered with a water-repellent green face paper, Temple-Inland water-resistant gypsum board is an excellent wall and ceiling construction material for high humidity areas. It may also be used as a base for the application of ceramic tile or other types of adhesively applied wall panels in most circumstances.* Installed and finished like regular gypsum board when not covered by decorative wall panels, it provides a perfect blend of convenience, performance and durability.
*Limitations: Should not be used as a tile backer in tub and shower surrounds or in areas with a risk of continuous exposure to water such as swimming pool enclosures, steam rooms or gang shower rooms.
Gypsum Board Properties
Low VOC-Emitting Material:
Temple-Inland gypsum board products are third-party certified by Materials Analytical Services, LLC (MAS) to meet the performance standard established for low-emitting materials under the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) Program.
Sulfur Emissions Testing:
In emissions level testing for carbon disulfide and carbonyl sulfide conducted by Materials Analytical Services (MAS), Temple-Inland gypsum board was determined to be negative for sulfur off-gassing and is not considered a problematic corrosive drywall type.
Gypsum board should be carried, never dragged, to prevent damaging the finished edges. When storing gypsum boards, store them indoors and protect them from weather and direct sunlight. Boards should be stored lying flat and neatly stacked. Care should be taken to prevent sagging or damage to edges, ends and surfaces. Placing boards against framing is not recommended.
Fire Resistance of 5/8" Type X Panels:
This material has been fire tested in accordance with the requirements of ASTM E119 and therefore may provide a fire rating of one or more hours, depending on the system in which it is applied. Because ASTM procedures require that fire tests be conducted on complete building assemblies/systems and not just on the board itself, the ability of any particular 5/8" Type X gypsum board to pass a specific ASTM fire test may well depend on factors other than the fire resistance of the gypsum board being tested. These factors include the other components used to construct the building system being tested, the manner in which the system is constructed and the inherent variability of ASTM fire tests. See our Fire-Resistant Gypsum Board page for more information.
The use of certified Temple-Inland gypsum board can contribute toward credits in the following green construction rating system categories.
Temple-Inland water-resistant gypsum board manufactured in West Memphis, Arkansas, Fletcher, Oklahoma, and Cumberland City, Tennessee, has been certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) in accordance to ISO 14021 standards to contain a minimum of 93% recycled material on a dry-weight basis.
