SERIOUS MATERIALS PRESENTS: EcoRock

The only true green alternative to gypsum drywall is currently being tested in California

Traditional gypsum drywall has remained virtually unchanged since its invention over 100 years ago.  Our increasingly fragile world requires rapid innovation to meet the changing conditions of our environment.  EcoRock is an evolutionary leap in drywall— an advanced solution that offers superior performance today, without sacrificing the prosperity of tomorrow.  We call this ecolution.

EcoRock uses 80% less energy to produce than gypsum drywall. Naturally cured and dried, it eliminates the energy-intensive, high-C02 generating calcining and oven-drying found in gypsum drywall production. EcoRock is made of 80% recycled materials and is made using 80% post-industrial recycled waste, including waste from steel and cement plants—with no gypsum.

This product is designed to be fully reutilized at end of life and can be used as a pH additive for soils and can be returned to the production of EcoRock and other building materials as a valuable raw material. Unlike gypsum, EcoRock may be safely disposed of in landfills if necessary.
EcoRock is the most mold-resistant and lowest emitting drywall and outperforms all other mold resistant drywall by 50%. EcoRock scores the highest ASTM D3273 rating of 10 out of 10, showing zero mold growth over a six week period, (other published tests go only four weeks). No harsh anti-fungal chemicals are used on its surface or within its core. EcoRock also drastically reduces the quantity of indoor air contaminants over any other drywall and generates 60% less dust, and presents no negative effects of airborne mercury often generated during wallboard production using FGD (recycled) gypsum from coal plants.
