Definition of blueboard
: wallboard that has a surface of light blue paper designed to be covered with a thin coat of plaster after installation Though Home Front could have opted to apply plaster over metal lath for the walls, they went with a common time-saving method instead, hand-troweling plaster over blueboard, a special drywall made for this purpose. — Keith Pandolfi, This Old House, May 2011
