Is this product really DAP?

I tried the pictured product and it was no good. The product thumbnail caption says it is DAP. No mention on package that it is DAP plus their product "dry-time indicator" is called DryDex.

how do i wet sand with damp sponge?

Asked by: kaz
The "wet sanding" method employs essentially the same techniques as normal drywall sanding, however instead of sand paper or sanding mesh, a wet sanding sponge is used. A wet sanding sponge has a rough gritty side and a soft sponge on the other side. The technique is used to produce a finer finish as well as reduce the amount of dust generated.

1 gal. High Performance Joint Compound Gallon, Goes on Pink, Dries White is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money This stuff has a very thick consistency making it difficult to apply a smooth finish coat. Leaves gaps and air pockets. Plus it takes an incredibly long time to dry for tape and corner joints. Takes 36-48 hours to dry which signifcantly slows the project. Stick with standard joint compound for half the price and better performance

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for new work Used before to patch and worked fine. Used a gallon for small bathroom, new sheetrock, and it was a mess. Too thick to spread, have to mix w water. Took a long time to dry, especially in corner joints, cracked/shrunk. Went out and bought standard dap, what a difference.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to apply The "goes on pink, dries white" is a cute gimmick. Unfortunately, the compound does not handle well on the knife. It is very stiff, and it's wet adhesion is inconsistent. (And, yes, I did damp-wipe surfaces before applying.) Once dry, it produced many air bubbles, requiring an additional coat after painting. Its probably OK for nail holes, but not taping or skim coating. I bought a plain, old-fashioned pail of white compound at my hardware store for 1/2 the price! The 'plain' joint compound went on 10x easier than this pink stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it. I have applied regular white joint compound before it fix nail pops, small hole and cracks. Bought this product because of a recommendation from a store associate. It was the worst purchase ever. It's thick and gooey, when dry shrinks in to the open surface leaving diverts requiring more than 2 coats for a screw hole. With the time wasted using this product it was a very expensive purchase. Do yourself a favor buy regular old white joint compound and leave the Dap High performance dry indicator (pink) on the shelf.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't dry! Takes forever to dry, and if you put it on thick to fill a crack, it cracks. Truly is junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I've done a good amount of drywall work--both new and repair. This stuff is terrible; it shrinks more than any product I have ever used, forcing one to put on way too many layers; it cracks while drying, the texture is gooey and not easy to work with, the pink disappears long before it is dry, and it takes forever to dry. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone--novice or expert, nor for any project. I am about ready to take it back to the store for a refund. Save yourself a lot of time and frustration--don't buy it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wouldn't buy again I bought this because I was too lazy to walk to the other side of Home Depot to buy the regular joint compound. Used this on a bathroom renovation. Every time the dry compound gets wet, it turns pink again. Therefore, when I wet wiped my new tile grout where tile meets drywall, the grout turned pink. Had a small lump of this DW mud on my tile float - left pink streaks everywhere. More trouble than it's worth.
