USG

Winner in: 2006

USG’s SHEETROCK Brand Lightweight All Purpose Joint Compound with Dust Control has a special patented formula that binds up fine residue during sanding to form heavier particles that fall to the floor instead of clouding the air. Construction dust is greatly reduced, which increases worker productivity, keeps air dust-free and reduces the cost of cleanup. The ability on a microscopic scale to agglomerate fine particles before they become airborne has opened a new way to control where nuisance dust goes.
