Asked by: John
Thank you for your inquiry. USG Sheetrock Plus 3 Lightweight Joint Compound is pre-mixed. You will need to use paper joint tape with it. Thanks for choosing USG.

Customer Reviews

4.5 Gal. Plus 3 Lightweight All-Purpose Pre-Mixed Joint Compound is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 233.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have used this for years I'm not a professional spackler but I rehab houses so I go through tons of this stull. I find it easier to blend than the general purpose joint compound so less sanding is required. If I require a third coat it's usually a touch-up coat to fill in pin holes. I'll cut this third coat with water to the consistency of pudding so it feathers nicely. Here's some pointers I learned over the years. Scrap down the sides of the bucket as you go so all the compound remains moist. Dried bits of compound in the mix equates to streaks on the wall. Load your hawk with small amounts at a time so you won't have to return unused portions to the bucket. Lastly, if you cut the mix with tap water cut it on the hawk and not in the bucket. This stuff will form a layer of mold in no time.

This used to be the go to mud of professionals, then they changed the bucket, no more. These bean counters,actuarials and white collar folks who only see numbers need to understand the the “ bucket” is a tool. I’ve ripped off my last nail trying to reopen these things. Told my supplier, only USG from now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lightweight compound I know of. Great light compound. I finish coat with it and it goes on smooth. Mix first with a big drill and add just a little water but not too much. I like it a little thicker than sour cream. Some guys add a little dawn dish soap. This makes it even slicker.
