ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar): 91.100.10
scope:

(Footnote *)

This specification covers the minimum requirements for, and methods of, application of gypsum veneer base for gypsum veneer plasters.

Gypsum veneer base shall not be used as a base for direct adhesive application of ceramic, metal, or plastic tile in areas exposed to abnormal moisture or humidity or temperature.

Details of construction for a specific assembly to achieve the required fire resistance shall be obtained from reports of fire-resistance tests, engineering evaluations, or listings from recognized fire testing laboratories.

Where a specific degree of sound control is required for veneer plaster assemblies and constructions, details of construction shall be in accordance with official reports of tests conducted in recognized sound testing laboratories in accordance with the applicable sound tests, Test Method C 423, Test Method E 90, or Test Method E 492.

Where this specification is more stringent (size or thickness of framing; spacing of fasteners) than the fire-rated construction, this specification shall govern; otherwise, the construction described in the fire test report shall govern.

Unheated spaces above gypsum veneer base ceilings shall be properly ventilated (see Appendix X3).

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI (metric) values given in parentheses are approximate and are provided for information purposes only.

The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

Footnote * - A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
