Georgia-Pacific LLC Key Developments

Georgia-Pacific Launches DensElement(TM) Barrier System for Commercial Building Envelopes

Georgia-Pacific LLC introduced patent-pending DensElement™ Barrier System with AquaKOR™ Technology, a new water-resistive and air barrier (WRB-AB) system solution for the installation of exterior walls in commercial construction. The all-in-one sheathing system integrates a WRB-AB directly into the gypsum sheathing panel's core to eliminate an entire step in the typical weatherization process for commercial buildings. To tightly seal the system, Georgia-Pacific collaborated with PROSOCO Inc. A quick application of PROSOCO's R-Guard® FastFlash® liquid flashing fills and seals all joints, fasteners and other penetrations to finish the system with no need to fully cover or coat the entire wall. The DensElement Barrier System offers architects, specifiers and contractors a performance-tested solution for building envelope construction. In rigorous lab testing and several southeast job sites, the system has proven time savings, reduced skilled labor needs, and saved bottom-line costs.

Georgia-Pacific to Invest $110 Million at Alabama River Cellulose Mill

Georgia-Pacific has announced plans for $110 million in upgrades to its Alabama River Cellulose, or ARC, mill. The investments include replacing one of the mill's two existing wood yards that process incoming logs, upgrading the other wood yard and a major upgrade to one of the mill's machines that produce pulp. The investment in ARC follows more than $2.2 billion invested by Georgia-Pacific across Alabama in the last 10 years. The ARC project will allow the mill to better serve customer needs, stay competitive in a challenging industry, preserve jobs for Alabama residents and provide ongoing support to the local and state community. In fact, this $110 million investment further secures the mill's estimated $200 million contribution to the local economy through payroll, direct purchases and taxes, as well as indirectly through products and services purchased by employees. Work on the project is slated to begin early next year, and construction is expected to require approximately 65 people per day for 18 months.
