    "Hi,
    The Green colour plasterboard is moisture resistant.

    Gyproc Moisture Resistant plasterboard is specifically designed to tolerate moist and humid conditions. Its silicone additives along with its water repellent liners help achieve a product that is perfect for use in, Bathrooms and kitchens where levels of humidity are significantly higher. This impressive plasterboard absorbs less than 5% of water, provides great fire protection and acoustic insulation where needed. This product is ideal for semi exposed areas and is a must for any Bathroom or kitchen construction."

    "Some manufactures specifications vary:
    Specifically gauging how moisture-resistant a board is isn’t possible.
    They have certain additives in the plaster/paper of the sheet that prevent moisture seeping, mould growing etc to an extent. However this is not a completely waterproof solution, if that’s what you are in need of, then there are other systems that can aid in this area."
