Sheetrock® Brand Paper Joint Tape


Tape with high tensile strength delivers strong, reliable wall joints that resist cracking, stretching, wrinkling and tearing under tools.

Use these strong, cross-fibered tapes with our joint compounds to reinforce joints and corners. The roughened surface ensures a strong bond and features a positive crease that simplifies corner applications. *As of November 17, 2017, all Sheetrock® and Beadex® Brand Joint tape products meet ASTM C475. This includes both our standard joint tape and heavy joint tape products.
