The Plasterboard (standard square edge) consists of a gypsum layer that is encased in two layers of lining paper. Based on the additives in the gypsum, the plasterboard can vary in strength and weight and make it suited for different purposes. Plasterboard is great for sound insulation, particularly against airborne sounds like music and speech. While great in any environment, care should be taken to ensure the plasterboards are not exposed moisture as this can affect its efficiency and lifespan. Plasterboard standard square edge is best when used for partitions, ceilings and internal walls and has a width of 1200mm. It is designed to accommodate the 600mm standard stud spacing adhered to in housing nowadays.
Using plasterboard as a wall finish can be much cheaper than wet plastering.
