National Gypsum is a fully integrated manufacturer and supplier of building products used worldwide. Primary emphasis is on Gold Bond® BRAND gypsum board; ProForm® BRAND drywall finishing products; PermaBase® BRAND cement board products; eXP® Extended Exposure fiberglass mat exterior products; and an XP® family of abuse, impact, mold and moisture resistant products and SoundBreak XP®, an acoustically enhanced gypsum board. For more information, visit the National Gypsum website and the ThermalCORE™ website.

The ThermalCORE™ Panel with Phase Change Material (PCM) is the first domestically produced wall panel that incorporates Micronal® PCM from BASF Corporation. The PCM changes phase from solid to liquid when it reaches 73 degrees Fahrenheit. It absorbs thermal energy to moderate a room’s temperature, similar to how an ice cube melts and absorbs heat to cool a drink. This technology brings the thermal mass properties achieved with thick stone walls to lightweight construction.

National Gypsum knows that up to 60 percent of a building’s energy use relates to its enclosure, and that they key to reducing energy consumption requires integrating advanced building materials with new construction techniques to create more energy-efficient building solutions. The Green Idea House will be a model for all homeowners who would like to make their homes more energy efficient, and National Gypsum is proud to contribute to it.
