Leading Australian plasterboard specialist CSR Gyprock introduces a
revolutionary development in plasterboard with the new and improved Supaceil featuring
Optimised Core technology.
The next generation plasterboard enabled by Optimised Core technology
from Gyprock provides balanced improvements with the advanced
performance-to-weight ratio translating into greater breaking strength in a
substantially lighter board in addition to exceeding the performance
requirements of Australian Standard AS2588.
Supaceil plasterboard was introduced in 1991 by Gyprock, revolutionising
the Australian plasterboard industry by delivering the first 10mm ceiling board
with the ability to span to 600mm centres by incorporating glass fibre to
reinforce the core.
The continuously evolving Supaceil range now incorporates Optimised Core
technology, which combined with the use of a stronger, thicker face paper,
delivers substantial performance benefits including better breaking strength
for improved handling performance; lightweight construction for easier lifting leading
to better sheet manoeuvrability and improved flex; improved face appearance with
the increased uniformity helping to achieve a more professional finish; significantly
improved score and snap for crisp edges and cleaner cuts; and glass fibre
reinforcement to span 600mm.
Optimised Core technology additionally assists with the desired
distribution of strength throughout the core of the plasterboard, by manipulating
the characteristics of the mix at the mixing phase, focusing density at the
face of the board with a less dense structure throughout the rest of the core.
Supaceil ceiling plasterboards with Optimised Core technology have been
extensively tested across Australia with consistently positive feedback from
