Gypsum insulation can be found in variety of forms including pellet form, board form and drywall applications.
The gypsum materials serve as a thermal barrier to supply extra R-value protection and fire resistance. R-value is a measure of thermal resistance.
Adding a supplemental gypsum insulation will increase the fire safety of a structure and seal the structure for better cooling and heating.
Gypsum insulation prevents air from seeping into the inner surface of a building's walls.
Covering an exterior wall with a gypsum panel product can create a completely acceptable R-value when also properly sealed and insulated.
