Families today expect more from their homes than ever before – thermal, durability and economy are all key requirements. Gyproc’s new products offer all of these benefits plus the reassurance of energy-efficient homes that do not impact the environment more than is necessary.
Gyproc ideas for home solutions feature 4 highlight products which have the specific advantages of special heat-proofing. Gyproc® ThermaLine® can be used for both wall and ceiling applications, whilst Gyproc® ThermaTile® is designated for ceiling installation specifically. Gyproc® ProCote and GypCote TOTAL are gypsum plasters that can be used for wall skim coating.
Gyproc® ThermaLine® is a special Thermal Insulation board which consists of gypsum board laminated with EPS Hi-Dense (Expanded Polystyrene High Density) sheet suitable for concealed ceiling or wall partitions which are exposed directly to sunlight, i.e. ‘ceiling under roof’. Gyproc® ThermaLine® has several key benefits: Special heat-proofing X5 with excellent external heat insulation performance (5 times protection compared to regular gypsum board); Money saving, as air-conditioner costs can be reduced by 69% when installing both wall and ceiling systems with Gyproc® ThermaLine®; Non-flammable with EPS Hi-Dense sheet (F Grade) passing the strict certification of Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS A 9511).
Gyproc® ThermaTile® is an innovation in high quality gypsum ceiling tiles for T-Bar systems, offering a special heat-proofed ceiling. They are lightweight and easy to install, providing high performance linings for indoor ceilings. Gyproc® ThermaTile® achieves excellent heat resistance with EPS Hi-Dense (Expanded Polystyrene High Density) sheeting which is heat-proofed 5 times. They offer an opportunity for Money Saving on air-conditioner costs and are Non-flammable with EPS Hi-Dense sheet (F Grade) passing JIS A 9511.
Gyproc® ProCote is a plaster that offers heat prevention, an ultra-light formula weight, white colour and is easy to use, quick to finish and provides a solution that will remain crack-free. This product is good for plastering on a wide variety of internal solid background types including concrete, brick and block work. It can be applied from 5-50 mm thick before skim-coating and is manufactured under Europe standard production EN 13279-1. It is a preventative heat plaster that helps keep the inside of buildings cooler. It reduces heat transfer from outside by up to 15% (measured from 15 mm, plastering and concrete wall 120 mm.). Gyproc® ProCote offers thermal insulation that helps indoor temperatures cool faster when first opening the air conditioner, further reducing costs and emissions.
GypCote TOTAL is a skim coat that provides a high quality, super smooth and “Crack-Free” skim coat finish between 0.5 – 2 mm. It can be used for a wide range of internal surfaces such as cement-rendered concrete, hollow block walls, pre-cast concrete panels and drywalls, gypsum boards and fibre-cement boards. GypCote TOTAL provides a superior level of surface uniformity and visual finish to walls and ceilings making them ready for final decoration with “No-Primer Required” paints, or as a base for wallpaper and other decorative finishes.
All Gyproc products are produced under the company’s ethos of Gyproc Go Green, a health-conscious product development strategy that benefits the health of anyone working in the gypsum production line as well as end users and consumers.
