Plasterboards are an essential building material for flexible and inexpensive interior design. The organic components necessary for production, such as starches, can favour the growth of mould, both when stored and installed, and affect the air quality in enclosed spaces. Products from the LANXESS biocide range offer reliable protection against all relevant kinds of moulds. They also have an emission feature that meets the most stringent requirements for indoor air quality.
