Each job goes more quickly and cleans up faster with less nuisance from airborne sanding dust.

It can smell a little bad for a few days after getting the mud up - but, it is nice to work with, and the dust is low when sanding (compared to other products out there).

Would this be good if being used to cover wood paneling?

This joint compound was excellent. There was little dust. It was easy to use, and spread very well. I will definately use it again!

good skimming compound
Works well to skim sand painted ceilings that were scraped down. I thinned it just a little bit and it laid up pretty well with a wide knife so that little sanding was needed. When you sand the dust drops quick, though it likes to clog up a sanding pole. The dust still gets into everything, but not as much as standard drywall mud. It doesn't dry as hard as standard drywall mud, but on a ceiling it's not an issue. I've used the lightweight on other ceilings, and the dust control mud works the best for easy application and finishing.
