WaterShield is a water resistant plasterboard made from a core of gypsum sandwiched and lined with recycled blue paper.

WaterShield is commonly used as a water resistant wall and ceiling plasterboard lining and as a substrate for tiles in internal wet areas such as bathrooms, showers, toilets and laundries.

WaterShield may also be used as the wall lining for indoor swimming pools provided a waterproof membrane is applied over the wall.

WaterShield has been independently certified by Global GreenTag to GreenRate Level A, recognised by the GBCA for Materials and VOC credits and by the NZGBC.
