Used to make interior walls and ceilings, our plasterboards are the result of over 100 years of scientific experimentation and innovation success. Cleaner, faster and easily handled by fewer workers, we have installed more than 725 million square meters of plasterboards worldwide.


Used for jointing, bonding, skimming and creating textured finishes for building interiors, we boast a broad range of products for compounds with our extensive capabilities to formulate solutions according to your requirements and preferences.


With over 50 years of experience, we are a premier acoustic panel and specialty ceilings innovator that also enhances overall aesthetics. Our portfolio includes acoustical, gypsum tile, metal, and specialty ceilings as well as both standard and seismically rated suspension systems.


Compared to traditional wet wall solutions, our substrates are lightweight (thereby reducing installation costs and speeds up construction) and versatile - making it ideal for unique building designs as they are able to be curved and applied on different finishes including paint, tile, stone and texture.


Our range of metal components and profiles allows construction of drywalls and ceilings to be done faster, more accurately and cleaner than conventional methods. Also, this innovative framing can be engineered to suit a job site’s requirements while achieving global construction standards.


USGKnauf improves lives by producing high-quality wall and ceiling solutions for the construction of sustainable, safe and comfortable buildings. Going beyond impacting our customers, we have partnered with Habitat for Humanity to better the lives of the less privileged. With our values of safety, integrity, and collaboration in mind, our Habitat for Humanity initiative also gives the company and our employees a unique opportunity to work alongside each other for a good cause, contributing time and expertise to building sturdy homes for those in need.
