    Re: Chinese Drywall Still Not Toxic

    Posted by johncodie on 2/27/09

    I watched the documentary from the US Gypsum Association as
    to how much of all drywall is manufactured. If memory serves
    me right most of the gypsum product comes from the same
    source from whowever choses to manufacture the product. Sort
    of like bricks are made by the same manufacturing methods but
    not all clays are the same; but has to have the same physical
    properties. Paper and gypsum rolled and dried in sheets cut
    to lenght. Most serious mold problems I have seen is from
    wet saturated wood products.
