A moisture resistant plasterboard with a green paper face.
Ideal for receiving a plaster finish or for direct decoration. To be used in internal building areas of high humidity such as Kitchens, Bathrooms and Toilets, if tiling in a wet area, use Knauf AQUAPANEL®
Whether you're an architect or contractor, Knauf High Performance Boards are designed to make your life easier.
Knauf Moisture Panel has been purpose designed for high performance in internal areas of high humidity such as bathrooms and kitchens. Made with unique additives and paper, the green faced board is fully tested for use with Knauf Performer ‘C’ Stud Partitions.
The board prevents moisture ingress meaning fewer damp related issues and reduced snagging costs.
Thermal conductivity: 0.24 W/mK
Compliance (to BS EN 520 Classification): Type A & H2
Reaction to fire: The National Classification is “Limited combustibility” but the European Classification is rated as “A2”.
The enhanced moisture resistance of the board makes it ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms and areas of high humidity.
The board should be installed using Knauf Drywall Screws and finished using the full range of Knauf jointing and finishing products include Knauf Airless Finishes.
Not suitable for swimming pools and direct application of water/moisture.
Mechanical fix only (not suitable for dot and dab application).
If using a gypsum skim the board should be primed with Betokontakt prior to skimming.
Moisture Panel can be recycled with other gypsum products.
What is the weight of the board?
12.5mm – 8.8kgm²
15.0mm – 10.2kgm²
What is the colour of the board?
Green paper face.
What fire rating does the board give?
We test fire resistance performance using the complete Knauf system such as a partition wall, ceiling or floor, and it is the complete Knauf system that will achieve a fire rating. This means the board alone cannot be given a fire rating. Contact Knauf Technical Services for more information.
What acoustic performance does the board give?
We acoustically test the board on a full Knauf system; it is the system that will achieve an acoustic rating. Contact Knauf Technical Services for more information.
What edge profiles are available?
Tapered or Square edges
What is the acceptable moisture content?
If the board has been exposed or semi-exposed for a brief period, it is common for those inspecting it to use a damp proof meter such as a Protimeter, in such cases we would recommend as a rule of thumb that the board should be suspected of lasting damage if the reading exceeds 16-18. Below 16 is acceptable.
What is the maximum temperature that the board can withstand?
What are the manufacturing board size tolerances?
In accordance to BS EN 520:2004 Knauf manufacturers its board to the below tolerances: Width +0/-4 mm Length +0/-5 mm Thickness +0/-5 mm
What is the maximum finish weight that can be applied to the board?
What is the pre-treatment for skimming?
You must apply Knauf Betokontakt to the boards prior to finishing.
