Sheetrock® Brand Gypsum Panels are the original and most widely used 1/4 in., 3/8 in. and 1/2 in. wall and ceiling panels on the market. These panels are manufactured with a noncombustible core encased in 100% recycled face and back papers, and the natural finish face paper is folded around the long edges to protect the core and the ends are cut square and even. The long edges of the panels are tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with USG Sheetrock® Brand joint treatment systems.
