UCC Gypsum Board Panel:
Universal Corporation’s dedication to constructing eco-friendly and sustainable spaces
UCC Gypsum Board is the ideal interior wall and ceiling panel solution for urban denizens. We manufacture our products based on three principles: reducing industrial waste, using recycled materials as our raw materials, and reusing our used panels.
UCC plasterboards have received numerous accolades, from receiving Taiwan’s Ministry of the Interior’s certification as a Healthy Green Building Material to having our panel systems passing both the evaluations administered by the United State’s Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the British Standards Institution (BS). UCC gypsum panels are made of recycled materials, synthetic gypsums from the flue gas desulfurization process of coal-fired electric power plants and recycled panel liners. Moreover, these panels are also recyclable materials as the gypsum and liners can be separated and reused.
Compared with other drywall products, gypsum board panel system is the best choice to build a fireproof and soundproof environment, perfecting one’s wish of attaining a LOHAS living environment. Globally, gypsum board panels have become synonymous for drywalls. As such, UCC gypsum board panels have become the top choice for many renowned global hotel and resort chains such as the W Hotel, Mandarin Oriental, the Macau Venetian, and Le Meridien. However, due to a lack of correct information pertaining to gypsum board panels, its acceptance amongst the local Taiwanese market is still a work in progress.
Stemming from this phenomenon, Universal Cement Corporation has dedicated itself to tackling any misconceptions regarding the product and also increasing its visibility to the consumers. We aim to raise the awareness of our gypsum board product and its benefits to the environment by sponsoring numerous green initiatives; while also releasing a new line of ceiling panels to add a breath of fresh air to the ennui patterns of old.
Realizing its Corporate Social Responsibility of being an active participant to confront climate change, Universal Cement Corporation has made the slogan “reduce, reuse and recycle” key objectives to our gypsum board panel production and construction cycle. Energy conservation and environmental protection must no longer be words of mouth, but every corporation’s core responsibility. Thus UCC dedicates itself to become a responsible corporate social citizen by aiding the effort to perfect sustainable development, transforming UCC into a “green” company.
