Continental Building Products Mold Defense is 1/2" thick drywall designed for use in interior wall and ceiling applications and offers enhanced protection against mold and mildew that can cause deterioration and/or stains. It contains a non-combustible, mold-, mildew- and moisture-treated gypsum core with treated paper facings on the front (green), back and long edges. This product will accommodate a variety of decorative treatments after proper surface preparation. Continental Mold Defense Drywall is moisture-resistant and can be used in tile backer applications in dry areas or in areas where a degree of moisture may be expected, such as bathrooms and laundry rooms (not for use in shower and bathtub areas). Continental Mold Defense can be used in building applications that require direct mechanical attachment to wood or metal wall and ceiling frames, or attachment to existing surfaces using fasteners or adhesives. It may also be used as a thermal barrier in roof assemblies when specified by the roofing manufacturer.
