Look out, mold! You don't stand a chance now that Syngenta's SPORGARD mold protection is being incorporated into National Gypsum’s XP® mold resistant gypsum board. Long a big player in agribusiness, SPORGARD marks Syngenta's move into mold protection in building materials. They have plans to incorporate their mold control chemicals into paints, coatings, insulation and engineered woods. XP with SPORGARD will make its debut at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas this week.
It is great to incorporate such technology into other components of building. Since mold seems to be showing up more and more within our tightly sealed homes, anything we can do to prevent it, it great.
