Prefabricated gypsum plasterboard panels with a cellular paperboard core - Definitions, requirements and test methods

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 July 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 32
ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar): 91.100.10
scope:

This European Standard specifies the characteristics and performance of prefabricated panels made of gypsum plasterboard facings complying with EN 520 and a cellular paperboard core intended to be used as a lightweight partition, lining and encasement for general use in buildings.

This standard covers the following characteristics: reaction to fire, water vapour permeability, flexural strength (breaking load) and thermal resistance to be measured according to the corresponding European test methods.

This Standard covers only prefabricated panels installed so that the core is not exposed.

The following performance characteristics are linked to systems assembled with prefabricated panels made of gypsum plasterboard facings and a cellular paperboard core: shear strength, fire resistance, direct airborne sound insulation, acoustic absorption and air permeability to be measured according to the corresponding European test methods. If required, tests should be done on assembled systems simulating the end use conditions.

This document covers also additional technical characteristics that are of importance for the use and acceptance of the product by the Building Industry.

It provides the assessment and verification of constancy of performance of the products.
