USG Boral Vietnam recently enriched its portfolio in the market with Glass-mat. Unlike conventional plasterboard, Glass-mat is specifically designed to resist moisture, mold, fire, heat and crack thanks to the gypsum core being treated and combined with non-woven glass mat on both two faces. 

Glass-mat is easy of installation in a shorter time, lightweight and cost-saving for building foundation while it can be curved as designed and easily go with such surface finishes as paint, tile, natural and artificial stones. The solution is ideal for exterior ceiling and wet area application such as balcony, lobby ceilings and bathroom partitions.

Alma Resort Nha Trang, Liberty Central Da Nang Hotel, Sala Sarica Đại Quang Minh, Lancer Apartments, Viet German University… are the first projects in Vietnam to adopt Glass-mat system.

Apart from Glass-mat, USG Boral has its ceiling and wall products installed in such symbolic buildings as Bitexco Financial Tower, Marriott Phu Quoc hotel, Intercontinential hotel, Novotel Phu Quoc hotel, Sheraton Nha Trang hotel, Lotte Hanoi Center, Marriott Hà Nội…
