- Plasterboard / Gypsum plasterboard
A building material made of gypsum with a cardboard cover on both sides. The panels obtain their stiffness from the double-sided cardboard, which absorbs the tensile forces. The panels can be directly covered with wallpaper, plaster, putty or tiles. The panels can be cut with a simple saw or a special knife. For wet areas, hydrophobised damp-proof boards are used. Gypsum plasterboards are used for lining interior walls, shafts and pre-wall installations.
