MGM Casino National Harbor

This destination gaming resort is located in National Harbor, a waterfront development just south of Washington D.C. The 1 million square-foot, $925 million MGM National Harbor Resort will include a 300-room luxury hotel, an expansive casino, a 1,200-seat theater, high-end retail, and 35,000 square feet of meeting space and specialty restaurants. Among the quality products used to construct it: 2.8 million square feet of Gold Bond® BRAND XP® Fire-Shield Gypsum Board ; 500,000 square feet of Gold Bond® BRAND eXP® Sheathing ; and 250,000 square feet of Gold Bond® BRAND eXP® Shaftliner

Gold Bond® XP® Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board

Gold Bond® BRAND XP® Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board with Sporgard™* was developed as an improved moisture resistant board, offering the same advantages of a traditional moisture resistant board with added mold resistance in the core and paper. XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board panels consist of a specially treated, fire-resistant, Type X gypsum core encased in a heavy mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled, National Gypsum PURPLE® paper on the face side and a heavy, mold/mildew/moisture resistant, 100% recycled, gray paper on the back side.

XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board was designed to provide extra protection against mold and mildew compared to standard gypsum board products. The face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, and the ends are square-cut and finished smooth. Long edges of the panels are tapered.

Tapered edges allow joints to be reinforced with ProForm® BRAND Joint Tape and concealed with ProForm BRAND Ready Mix or ProForm® BRAND Quick Set Setting Compounds. For optimum mold and mildew performance, ProForm® BRAND XP® Ready Mix is recommended for use.

XP Fire-Shield Gypsum Board features a Type X core to provide additional fire resistance ratings when used in tested systems.

Gold Bond XP Fire-Shield C Gypsum Board Panels have a specially formulated Type X core to achieve superior performance when used in specific fire-rated assemblies where the weight and number of gypsum board layers are a concern.
