Gyproc Activ'Air

Gyproc Activ'Air board is a high performance board consisting of an aerated gypsum core with other additives encased in, and firmly bonded to, strong paperliners and is suitable for drylining internal surfaces. Gyproc Activ'Air boards actively improve indoor air quality by permanently removing formaldehyde circulating indoors.

  • Provides at least 50 years of formaldehyde absorption based on tests and analysis.
  • Can be used with most water based acrylic and epoxy paints and breathable wallpaper.
