SHEETROCK® Brand Gypsum Panels are the original, the preferred, and the most widely used gypsum panels anywhere. SHEETROCK® offers the highest quality standards that result in fast-applying, high-performance walls and ceilings. SHEETROCK Brand Gypsum Panels are factory-fabricated, composed of a fire-resistant gypsum core encased in heavy natural-finish paper on the face side and strong liner paper on the back side, both manufactured with 100% recycled paper. This means more strength, scuff-resistance and a better looking finish when the project is done. The long edges of SHEETROCK panels are tapered, allowing joints to be reinforced and concealed with CGC joint treatment for a smooth, crack resistant finish. SHEETROCK Brand Gypsum Panels are available in different core types including abuse-resistant, fire resistant, water and mould resistant. SHEETROCK is also available in exterior and interior ceiling board and flexible format for curves and arches. Whatever you're planning, SHEETROCK is the best place to start.To get technical detail on the CGC line of products, visit the CGC website.
New! Lightweight Drywall
SHEETROCK® UltraLight Gypsum Panels are re-engineered, lightweight gypsum panels with a patented, composite design. The non-combustible core is encased in 100% recycled face and back papers. The natural finish face paper is folded around the long edges to reinforce and 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 CGC or SYNKO® Interior Finishing Products.
The panels are for use in non-fire rated applications such as new residential, repair and remodel construction, and can be installed on steel or wood framing. SHEETROCK UltraLight Panels are manufactured to meet ASTM C1396 Specifications for 1/2" gypsum panels and 1/2" gypsum ceiling board, and comply with the requirements of the National Building Code of Canada as both regular drywall and ceiling board.
Lightweight, quality wall and ceiling panels for interior applications.
Note: Product available in select regions only. Contact your local CGC sales representative.

DUST CONTROL® Drywall Compound is a revolutionary product that reduces the mess associated with sanding drywall compound. DUST CONTROL® Drywall Compound goes on the wall as well or better than other leading drywall compounds, with the added value that when sanding most of the dust falls straight to the floor and doesn't float around in the air. It is an all purpose compound that can be used to embed tape, fill and finish gypsum panels, bead, trims and fasteners. It can also be used for skim-coating over dry and non-glossy surfaces.
We also carry the stanadard compunds, tapes, screws, corner beads etc.
Features and Benefits
- Less airborne dust for faster cleanup-dust binds together and falls to the ground
- Lightweight formula weighs up to 15% less than conventional-weight compounds
- Easy working and sanding; (aluminum oxide paper recommended- to prevent clogging)
- Excellent bond, smooth application, long working time
- For taping, filling and finishing
DUROCK® NEXT GEN Cement Board provides a flat, durable base for premium finishes including ceramic tile, quarry tile, thin stone and brick. This mould and moisture resistant board is ideal for use on walls, floors, soffits and ceilings in both wet and dry areas. It is also suitable for exterior applications and this non-combustible panel is ULC listed as a wall shield/floor protector.
When exposed to water, DUROCK® cement board will not swell, soften, decay, support mould growth, delaminate, or disintegrate. The board is easy and quick to install - it scores and snaps like gypsum panels and is easy to secure using DUROCK® Screws or self-drilling fasteners or nails. Finish with DUROCK joint tape.
Features and Benefits
- Lightest cement board
- Easiest to score and snap
- Moisture and mould resistant
- Interior and exterior applications
- Freeze/thaw resistant in exterior applications
- Use mastics on smooth side and thin set mortars on rough side.

Green E-Board™ is an ecological alternative to gypsum, wood, and cement based building products. GreenEboard™ is manufactured with a patent pending process and formula, using primary components of magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride.
The manufacturing process uses less than 50% of the energy consumed to make a comparable Portland cement based wall board. GreenEboard contains a minimum of 5% transferred post-industrial recycled material, and 100% of our manufacturing post-industrial waste is recycled into future production runs. No raw materials or scrap materials are ever wasted or put into a landfill. GreenEboard™ may contribute to LEED credits MR8, minimum EQ, EQ 3.1 (EQ plan during construction) and MR4.1, (materials with recycled content).
GreenEboard™ is manufactured in Asia, and shipped to you on large container ships. Research has shown that the carbon footprint of shipping one pallet of GreenEboard to the USA is approximately equivalent to driving the same pallet about 25 miles in a pickup truck to the jobsite. GreenEboard™ is non-nutrient for fungus when tested under ASTM D3273, because of its high content of magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride. In other words, it naturally will not grow mold or mildew, solving one of the biggest issues of construction in wet areas such as showers and tub surrounds. In addition, GreenEboard™ contains no VOCs or harmful silica, making it safe for the installer as well as the end-user.
GreenEboard™ has been successfully used in construction for the chemically sensitive. GreenEboard™ is waterproof. It will not swell, delaminate, warp, or disintegrate when exposed to a wet environment. Remarkably, GreenEboard™ is also water vapor permeable. This allows GreenEboard™ to be used as a wall-board in construction where breathable walls are specified. GreenEboard™ received the Class 1 or Class A flame and smoke rating when tested under ASTM E84. This means that it does not contribute fuel to a fire, and does not produce flame or smoke when exposed to fire. In international testing, 1/2” GreenEboard™ has been approved as part of a two hour fire assembly.
We carry GreenEboard in 4'x8' and 3'x5' sheets. View the Canadian website.
