Installing Gyproc DuraLine 15mm Plasterboard
When considering the installation of Gyproc DuraLine 15mm plasterboard, it's important to take specific factors into account. Here are guidelines for cutting, fixing, finishing, painting, wallpapering, and making repairs:
To cut Gyproc DurLine 15mm plasterboard, you have a couple of options. You can use a plasterboard saw for precision cuts. Alternatively, score the front face paper with a sharp knife, then gently snap it along a straightedge and cut through the back face paper. When cutting holes for items like socket boxes, a utility saw is suitable.
When fixing Gyproc DurLine 15mm plasterboard, ensure the decorative side faces outward to achieve the desired appearance. Fixings should be placed at least 13mm away from cut edges and 10mm from bound edges. Whenever possible, position cut edges at internal angles, and stagger horizontal and vertical joints between layers by at least 600mm.
After fixing the board, it's advisable to begin the finishing process as soon as possible to minimise potential damage or UV degradation to the paper liner. You can finish the 15mm plasterboard using jointing systems that comply with EN13963-1 standards, which may include other Gyproc products.
Painting and Wallpapering
Once the finishing system has dried, you can commence the decorating process with your chosen paint or wallpaper. This step allows you to achieve the desired aesthetic finish for the plasterboard.
If the 15mm plasterboard sustains damage over time, first check if the board's core remains intact. If the core is undamaged, you can repair the affected area using a product like Gyproc Easifill 60. Apply the filler, allow it to set, and apply a second coat if necessary. Once it's dry, sand it to a smooth finish before redecorating the repaired section. This ensures a seamless and visually pleasing result.
Is Gyproc DuraLine 15mm Plasterboard moisture resistant?
