        Easy to work with and very smooth. Sands easy and is solid. Full sized pail means better value and less trips to get more. Other brands grow mold very easy for some reason.

        I will never apply tape with this mud.
        Compare this to ProForm Quick Set or Quick Set Light setting type compounds (hot mud in bags) and you'll never tape with Black All Purpose. The adhesion is much much better. Notice how the different compounds held the paper tape in the test pictured. Some peeled away clean in spots (not good) and others held so well that the tape actually delaminated (perfect adhesion). Black All Purpose didn't do well at all. Quick Set and QS Light are of the few with absolutely perfect adhesion. USG DuraBond also has perfect adhesion in this test. Based on this, I would never tape with this product. USG Green (and all other USG bucket muds tested) performed better than Black AP. This mud had the worst adhesion of all I have tested. See my USG ULTRALIGHT review for a picture of the USG results.

        Nick, thank you for your feedback. When you have a moment please give us a call at our technical hotline, 1-800-NATIONAL. Our All Purpose mud adheres to strict tape bond standards, so we would like to learn more about your testing and see if we can figure out why you did not get a satisfactory result with the All Purpose. Thank you for your feedback as well on the Quick Set products.

          I absolutely hate this product. I had it installed and I did some of the installation myself. This product shrinks a lot when it dries out. I did some work during the summer months. Now that it is winter, I can see crack lines. I bought more finish my basement and they are going back.
