SoundBreak XP® Ceiling Board
Acoustically Enhanced High-Density Gypsum Ceiling Board
Turn down the noise when you incorporate SoundBreak XP Ceiling® Board into your floor-ceiling assemblies. You will dramatically reduce sound transmission between rooms or dwelling units with this superior sound-damping gypsum board.
SoundBreak XP has an acoustically enhanced, high-density gypsum core encased in heavy, abrasion and mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled PURPLE® paper on both sides. Plus, SoundBreak XP provides superior mold-inhibiting qualities.
- Product Overview
Reduces Sound Transmission
- Has a layer of viscoelastic damping polymer sandwiched between two pieces of high-density, mold-resistant gypsum board
- Provides high-rated Sound Class Transmission (STC) and Impact Insulation Class (IIC) values per an independent third-party acoustical laboratory using ASTM E90 test procedures
Works For Interior Projects
- Use in a single layer or as a component of multi-layer floor-ceiling assemblies
- Thinner than traditionally built high-STC partitions, increasing usable space
- Available in 3/4" and has a 1-hour fire-rating in specific UL floor-ceiling designs.
- Provides greater resistance to surface abuse and indentation than standard gypsum board (per ASTM C1629)
Installs Fast And Easy
- Installs like traditional gypsum board, without requiring additional clips and/or channels
- Finishes and decorates as easily as standard gypsum board
- For speed of installation, GridMarX® guide marks are printed on the paper surface.
- Can cut by scoring deeply from both sides before snapping or by using a hand/power saw
Inhibits Mold Growth
- Helps inhibit mold growth with the highest possible score on mold tests (ASTM D3273 and ASTM G21)
- Features Sporgard™ technology with extra mold-inhibiting properties
- Has less than 5% water absorption per ASTM C473
Resists Moisture Better
- Fights the effects of moisture before damage can occur
- Helps to reinforce the structure’s integrity and strength
- Reduces or eliminates swelling or dimensional movement caused by moisture
