Sheetrock® Brand Gypsum Board Ultra Light Regular - SGB127UR3048

USG Sheetrock® Brand Ultra Light Panels are 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) gypsum panels that feature proprietary core and paper technologies, resulting in a high strength-to-weight ratio composite design. These lightweight panels are also engineered to have superior sag resistance, eliminating the need for traditional 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) sag-resistant ceiling panels. The noncombustible gypsum core is encased in 100% recycled face and back papers, and the face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core. The ends of the panels are cut square and even, while the the long edges are tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with USG Sheetrock® Brand joint treatment systems.
  • The industry’s first lightweight 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) gypsum panels
  • Superior score and snap for a cleaner edge and faster installation
  • International Code Council® (ICC®) Evaluation Service compliant for ceiling installations,  ESR-3365
  • Comply with ASTM C1396, Standard Specification for Gypsum Board, for 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) gypsum wallboard and 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) gypsum ceiling board
  • Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) Classification as to surface-burning characteristics and  noncombustibility 
  • Achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification and qualifies as a low VOC emitting material  (meets CA 01350)
  • Commercial or residential applications where 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) panels are desired
  • New or repair and remodel construction
  • Non-fire-rated wood- or steel-framed wall and ceiling applications
  • Parallel or perpendicular installation on ceilings with 24 in. (610 mm) OC framing when water based texture is applied
  • Avoid exposure to sustained temperatures exceeding 125°F (52°C).
  • Avoid exposure to excessive, repetitive or continuous moisture before, during and after installation. Eliminate sources of moisture immediately.
  • Must be stored off the ground and undercover in accordance with Gypsum Association's  GA-801, Handling and Storage of Gypsum Panel Products.
  • For high-quality finishing results, USG recommends USG Sheetrock® Brand finishing products.
  • Painting products and systems should be used that comply with recommendations and requirements in Appendices of ASTM C840. For priming and decorating with paint, texture or wall covering, follow manufacturer’s directions for materials used. Gypsum Association's GA-214, Recommended Levels of Finish for Gypsum Board, Glass Mat and Fiber-Reinforced Gypsum Panels should be referred to in order to determine the level of finishing needed to ensure a surface properly prepared to accept the final decoration.
  • All surfaces, including applied joint compound, must be thoroughly dry, dust-free and not glossy. Prime with USG Sheetrock® Brand First Coat™ Primer or with an undiluted, interior latex flat paint with high-solids content. Allow to dry before decorating.
  • To improve fastener concealment where gypsum panel walls and ceilings will be subjected to critical artificial or natural lighting, or will be decorated with a gloss paint (eggshell, semigloss or gloss), the gypsum panel should be skim coated with joint compound. This equalizes suction and texture differences between the drywall face paper and the finished joint compound before painting. When a Level 5 finish is required, use USG Sheetrock® Brand Tuff-Hide™ Primer-Surfacer.
