Overview

Details + Specification

  • All purpose drywall compound provide high- quality drywall joint finishing with ready-to-use convenience
  • Used for embedding tape and for concealing and finishing joints, fasteners, and trim accessories on gypsum wallboard, in applications where the use of a single compound for both taping and finishing is desired
  • Can be applied manually or with mechanical tools
FEATURES:
  • Factory mixed to ensure uniform consistency and to save time on the job
  • Used for taping, covering and finishing coats on wallboard joints, for concealing fastener holes and corner bead, and for repairing cracks and holes
  • Sands easily and feathers to smooth edge
  • Liquid content is carefully controlled at the factory to ensure minimum shrinkage
COVERAGE:
  • Approximate coverage in kilograms of compound per 100 m2 (1000 ft 2) of drywall panel is as follows: Regular - All- Purpose Compound (3 coats) 55-68 kg
  • 47 sq.ft. of drywall
STORAGE:
  • Rotate stock to avoid aging problems
APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Wallboard joints are normally finished using three coats of compound; the first to embed the tape, the second to cover the tape, and the third to finish the joint
  • These compounds can be used for all three coats
  • Apply the first coat to the joint in a band about 64 mm (2-1/2") wide
  • Centre tape over joint and embed with a broad knife
  • Allow to dry for 24 hours
  • Apply second (cover) and third (finishing) coats, allowing each to dry thoroughly
  • Sand between coats, if necessary
  • Feather edges of each coat 50 mm (2") beyond the previous coat
  • Finished joint should be about 350 mm (14") wide
  • Allow to dry for 24 hours before sanding
  • Use 120 grit sandpaper for the Regular and 150 grit for the Lite and Semi-Lite on a hand or pole sander
  • Do not sand the surface wallboard paper
  • Note: to avoid dust, joints can be finished by wet sanding or sponging rather than dry sanding
  • If dry sanding, ventilate the area and wear eye protection and a respirator
  • For best results, apply a primer-sealer prior to painting or wallpapering
  • For severe lighting conditions, or if a gloss paint is to be applied as the finish coat, it is recommended that the entire surface of the wallboard receive a skim coat of compound before applying the primer-sealer
  • This will assist in equalizing the rate of absorb- tion of the gloss paint and help to avoid flashing at the joints
MIXING:
  • Re-mix before and during use, if compound has separated
  • To thin, add no more than 40 ml (1.5oz) of clean water per kilogram of compound
  • Mixing by drill motor, particularly at thinner consistencies, may entrap air in the mix, possilby resulting in "pin holes" in the finish
  • Mixing at low RPM or by hand will minimize air entrapment
DRYING TIME:
  • Approximately 24 hours depending on temperature and relative humidity
