Also question is, what is blue board used for?
Blue board drywall is also known as plaster baseboard. Blue board is used for veneer plastering, and the surface paper has special absorption qualities. It has a high water and mold resistance and there are fewer steps involved in veneer plastering.
Additionally, what is the difference between blue board and drywall? Drywall panels are covered with paper that will take paint directly, once they've been taped and the joints and fasteners have been covered with compound. Blueboard's more absorbent paper layer is designed to bond with a veneer plaster coating before it's painted.
Furthermore, what's the difference between green board and purple board?
What's the difference between PURPLE® drywall and traditional green drywall? Traditional green drywall (also known as greenboard) is only moisture-resistant. PURPLE® drywall, only made by National Gypsum, is superior because it offers moisture, mold and mildew resistance.
What is the difference between blue and green joint compound?
Green is all-purpose “heavy weight” and has no bearing on where it's used as far with greenboard or whatever. Green is a stronger compound than the “light weight” blue so it's preferred for all joint taping and screw covering.
