DensGlass Gold® is a unique, ‘‘paperless’’ sheathing panel made of a treated, water resistant core, surfaced with glass mat facings and a ‘‘gold’’ colored primer coating. Providing superb protection from the elements, DensGlass Gold panels are resistant to decay, delamination and deterioration due to weather exposure – even during construction delays that last as long as six months after installation. DensGlass Gold panels are also mold-resistant when tested, as manufactured, per ASTM D 3273.
DensGlass Gold sheathing exhibits a dimensional stability that assures resistance to warping, rippling, buckling and sagging for a flat and even substrate. DensGlass Gold sheathing is noncombustible. Since DensGlass Gold panels are strong in both directions, they may be installed either parallel or perpendicular to wall framing members (always follow specific assembly installation instructions).
