Description: Sheetrock®Brand UltraLight Panels are re-engineered, lightweight gypsum wallboard panels with a high strength-to-weight ratio composite design. The panels have superior sag resistance that eliminates the need for traditional 1/2″ sag-resistant ceiling panels. The noncombustible gypsum core is encased in 100% recycled face and back papers. 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 with Sheetrock® Brand joint treatment systems.
