The Gypsum Products Development Association (GPDA) which represents the drylining systems manufacturers, (Etex, British Gypsum and Knauf) recently reviewed and re-published an umbrella statement regarding the compatibility of materials between the manufacturers. Click here to read the statement.

The revised statement, published in April 2018, is a simplification of what was published before and updated over time, so aims to clarify issues regarding the mixing of products and assuring performance and meeting the terms of the individual manufacturer’s warranty/insurance.

It is important that advice is sought before installing drylining that all materials, stud, board, screws jointing materials and plaster finishing are compatible with the systems supplier’s warranty before placing any orders.
