Purple board??


I am putting in a half bath. Toilet and sink only. My sink will touch a wall. How do I prevent sheetrock from failing from people splashing water on it as they wash up.?

What does that have to do with "purple" board - whatever it is where your are?

You can install a tile backsplash.
You can use a proper washable paint.

the only purple board I know is impact resistant. I believe it has a fiberglass mesh embedded into it. It is not rated for use around moisture if I recall correctly.

and bud answered the actual question.

In this area we now have MR drywall that is purple. It's real purdy!
Might be what that is.

I thought it was plaster-base but the owner assures me it was new MR.

haven't seen MR in purple but since that isn't my trade, I don't see all the products out there.

I guess this company does make their MR in purple but it seems M means mold in that case.

Maybe that's what he had!
Then it should be MMR board.

Yep. You can get purple MR board. Make sure you use the proper drywall mud and non organic tape. Regular drywall mud has organics in it that will mold, and paper tape..... well that goes without saying. Or use Densarmor drywall.
