About This Product

USG Sheetrock Brand Easy Sand 20 Joint Compound is a lightweight, setting-type compound with a 20-minute working time. USG setting-type joint compounds provide faster finishing of drywall interiors, even under slow drying conditions. Rapid chemical hardening and low shrinkage permit same-day finishing and usually next-day decoration. USG Sheetrock Brand Easy Sand 20 Joint Compound features an exceptional bond; virtually unaffected by humidity extremes. It is ideal for laminating double-layer systems, particularly fire-rated assemblies, and for adhering gypsum panels to above-grade concrete surfaces. May also be used for surface texturing and for filling, smoothing and finishing interior above-grade concrete. Note: Setting-type joint compounds should not be used for skim coating due to dryout concerns.

Highlights

  • Weigh up to 25% less than conventional weight setting-type joint compounds
  • Sands easily; similar to a ready-mixed, all-purpose joint compound
  • Unique humidity resistance
  • Check-crack resistance in heavy fills
  • For interior gypsum panels and exterior gypsum ceiling boards
  • GREENGUARD Gold certified for low-emitting performance
  • Return Policy

Q:Can easy sand 20 be used on interior painted cinderblock?
by|Apr 9, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Mike Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend using Sheetrock Cover Coat in this application. To achieve the best results, we'd recommend slightly sanding the wall to get a rougher surface for the compound to key into. We also recommend doing a small area first to ensure the compound does not bubble over the paint. Hope this helps.

    Q:This might be a silly question, but I only used a small portion of the easy sand powder and have no immediate use for the rest of the bag. How should the remainder of the compound powder be stored? Properly stored, how is it good for? Thank you!

    A:  Dunno- The shelf life for the USG Easy Sand 20 Lightweight Setting-Type Joint compound is up to 12 months in controlled environmental conditions. Exposure to moisture or humidity during storage can have an adverse impact on product performance. Close open bags as tightly as possible and store in a dry place.

        Q:Can you use this outside

        Answer This Question

        A:  Jimmy, USG Sheetrock Brand 18 lb. Easy Sand 20 Lightweight Setting-Type Joint Compound can be used for finishing joints on exterior gypsum soffit panels (not vertical walls). I have included the installation recommendation below. Mix joint compound according to directions on the bag. Do not overmix or use at temperatures below 45°F (7°C). Prefill joints of exterior gypsum soffit panels with compound. After prefill has set, embed USG Sheetrock® Brand Joint Tape centered over joint. When compound has set, immediately apply fill coat. Apply compound over flanges, control joints, corner beads and metal trim. Spot fastener heads. After fill coat has set, apply finishing coat of compound. Completely cover all joints, angles, beads, control joints and fasteners. After the compound has dried, apply one coat of a good quality exterior primer. Then follow with at least one coat of a good quality exterior paint.

          This product worked great for intended use. Compound dries fast and is very durable. In combination with a fabric tape, it worked great for an unsupported sheetrock joint.

          Quick Set Light is better.
          Compare this to Proform Quick Set Light and you'll never use Easy Sand again. The adhesion is much better for taping with and it goes on much smoother if you finish with it. It sands equally well. Note the way 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). Easy Sand didn't do so well. Quick Set Light is one of the few with perfect adhesion. USG DuraBond also has perfect adhesion in this test. Based on this, I would only buy Easy Sand if I could not find Quick Set and wasn't applying tape.
