Product Description

Continental Building Products Weather Defense Sheathing Type X is a moisture-, mold- and fire-resistant exterior wall sheathing designed to be covered by an exterior- finish cladding such as siding, brick, masonry veneer or wire-lath stucco. Its specially formulated fire-rated, moisture- and mold-resistant gypsum core is covered with a coated fiberglass mat on front, back and long edges. Weather Defense Platinum Sheathing Type X can be used in Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) when specified by the EIFS manufacturer, and as a substrate for air and water-resistant barriers including wraps, self-adhesive membranes and liquid-applied coatings. To ensure optimum Type X re resistance performance, follow recommended installation procedures for fire-rated assemblies. May be used as a thermal barrier in roof assemblies when specified by the roofing manufacturer.
