Gypsum boards are lightweight construction materials that are widely being used as walls, ceilings and for partitions in interiors or exteriors of residential or non-residential structures. They are often called drywall, wallboard or plasterboard and can be directly attached to wood and metal framing or existing surfaces using screws, nails or adhesives. Gypsum boards provide sound control, versatility, quality, convenience and their non-combustible core makes them different from plywood, hardboard and fiberboard. Thus, they have become prevalent and are serving as a speedier alternative to traditional lath and plaster.
