SHEETROCK® Paper Joint Tape

SHEETROCK® Paper Joint Tape is a strong, cross-fibred paper tape suitable for use with our extensive range of joint compounds to reinforce joints and corners. The roughened surface ensures a strong bond and features a positive crease that simplifies internal corner applications.

The paper tape's high tensile strength helps resist cracking, stretching, wrinkling and tearing under tools and deliver a strong, reliable wall joints.

  • High tensile strength to resist tearing, stretching and distortion.
  • Wafer-thin paper for easier joint treatment.
  • Roughened surface for superior bond.
  • Centre-creased to improve corner treatment.

USG Boral strongly recommends the use of paper tapes such as SHEETROCK® Joint Tape when embedding and second coating with air-drying type joint compounds. Eg. when using RediBase™ and All Purpose Premix joint compounds.
