Hello oldpouse and thank you for your question regarding our Sheetrock All-Purpose joint compound. Wet sanding with a damp, high density, small celled, polyurethane sponge is a viable alternative to conventional dry sanding, especially when minimal sanding is required. Wet sanding methods are not intended to remove large amounts of joint compound or compensate for poorly finished joints. Wet sanding Read More
Hello oldpouse and thank you for your question regarding our Sheetrock All-Purpose joint compound. Wet sanding with a damp, high density, small celled, polyurethane sponge is a viable alternative to conventional dry sanding, especially when minimal sanding is required. Wet sanding methods are not intended to remove large amounts of joint compound or compensate for poorly finished joints. Wet sanding produces no dust, which may eliminate the need to use a dust collector or respirator. It requires minimal clean-up; it is less likely to scuff or damage the gypsum panel face or surface.

Answer: 
This compound works best for spackling in thin layers. If you try to fill deeper holes, it takes forever to dry, the compound cannot dry properly and it cracks. For holes, use a wall repair patch (such as HDX Self Adhesive Steel patch) or cut a piece of a drywall sheet.

Answer: 
any hole that is 6 inches in diameter really isn't patching....you'll need to repair it.
Joint compound alone won't hold up without mesh tape and screen to effectively let the joint compound set up and dry evenly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty Good Stuff Long story short I bought this because the ultralight 5 gal compound ran out, upon applying this stuff I noticed a significant difference in consistency and the curing time this stuff cures in like 1 hour the ultralight green stuff takes days. I would of been better off with this stuff in the first place, you live and you learn. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beats other products for conistency I've always used this product. Was in other box store and needed some for quick remodel work and didn't want to buy large bucket. They didn't carry USG in this size. In a hurry I bought the DAP product and was sorry I did. The DAP product has the consistency of caulk and spreads like it and smears and hard to build up. Always go with the USG green bucket and you won't be disappointed. October 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smooth as butter Worked perfect, glides on smoothly,sands easily, dried quickly without too much shrinkage. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by long life shelf life on this after opening was amazing! I got tired of throwing out 1/2 5 gallon buckets due to mold,the one gallon size is easier to store in limited areas. after opening the bucket and using a small amount,I resealed the bucket and after 6 months I reopened it and it was as clean as the day I used it! March 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth and workable product Sheetrock brand all-purpose pre-mixed joint compound has good consistency and is easy to spread. It dries in about a day and is easy to sand. It is a very good product and a good value. December 18, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The product is perfectly mixed and ready to use It did the job we needed without the worry of over- or under-mixing AND it was available in the perfect size for our small job. March 22, 2012
