PABCO® High Impact

Primary Uses

  • Interior walls where surface durability against abrasions and surface indentation is necessary
  • High humidity interior areas  where enhanced mold and moisture protection is needed on wall and ceiling applications
  • High traffic interior walls such as corridors in schools, hospitals, offices and courthouses and correctional facilities
  • Not intended for areas where constant or excessive moisture is present such as showers, steam rooms or saunas
  • New or renovation projects with frame spacing not more than 24 inches on center
