Customer Questions & Answers

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 2.6 out of 5 by 33.
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

The thickness makes it impossible to use on corner material. It spreads like peanut butter. This stuff is being returned for anything else! I have patch-n-paint that is smoother and creamier than this stuff! WASTE OF MONEY/TIME DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK! HOME DEPOT,GET IT OFF THE SHELVES!

Its very think, which makes it difficult to when taping. It also take long to dry, I'm seeing crack from the shrinkage. I will most likely go back to HomeDepot today and buy a different brand.

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 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.

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 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 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.
