USG Sheetrock® Brand Paper Joint Tape

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

USG Sheetrock® Brand Joint Tapes include USG Sheetrock® Brand Drywall Joint Tape and USG Sheetrock® Brand Heavy Joint Tape. 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.
