Sheetrock Brand Drywall Mud, Tape, and More

There are brand names that become so synonymous with products that they are used as general terms. A personal watercraft is a "Jet Ski." A hot tub is a "Jacuzzi." Facial tissue is a "Kleenex." And drywall sheets are referred to as "Sheetrock." But in reality, Sheetrock is a brand. It's manufactured by the largest distributor of gypsum wallboard (drywall) in the United States, United States Gypsum (USG) Corporation. Their joint compound, primers, spray textures, and drywall tape are relied upon by thousands of construction professionals every single day.
