Source

AirRenew® Gypsum Board is for use in interior walls and ceilings.AirRenew catpures VOC's, specifically formaldehyde and other aldehydes, converting them into inert compounds that safely remain within the core of the wallboard. Once they are captured in the board, they cannot be released back into the air. M2Tech® technology also improves indoor air quality by providing enhanced moisture and mold resistance. AirRenew provides up to 75 years effective absorption and is UL Validated for its environmental claims.

AirRenew® Gypsum Board is used for residential, commercial or institutional applications. It can be used for new construction or renovations over wood or steel framing. It is typically nailed or screwed to studs spaced 16" or 24" o.c., but can be laminated with an adhesive.

In-plant scrap is recycled back into the process.; Certainteed's 13 gypsum board manufacturing locations provide regional material coverage throughout North America.
