CSR Gyprock have recently added their Ultra-Base 60 base coat to their growing list of GECA certified products! The lightweight base coat is used as the first and second coat in a three-coat plasterboard jointing system, and meets all the criteria of the Adhesives, Fillers and Sealants standard.

Once the base coats have been applied, joints may be finished with any Gyprock topping or all-purpose compound and sanded smooth prior to decoration. Gyprock Base Coats help to create a superior strength joint in conjunction with jointing tape and provide excellent tape adhesion.

Ultra-Base 60 is a low VOC dry powder compound manufactured by Gyprock in Australia to stringent product specifications. It is a setting compound not an evaporative drying type. It has a defined working life of approximately 60 minutes after mixing, allowing subsequent coating on the same day.

As well as holding GECA certification, the Ultra-Base 60 compound has superior mould resistant properties, earning the official endorsement from the National Asthma Council Australia's Sensitive Choice program. Research indicates that 2.3 million Australians suffer from asthma and over 30% of the population has allergies. The Sensitive Choice program identifies products that are a better choice for asthma, eczema and allergy sufferers.
