A: Thank you for your inquiry. . Ready mix joint compounds have a shelf life of 9 months from the production date stamped on the carton or bucket. Always check the dates to make sure you are purchasing the freshest compound. We do not recommend using any compound that is discolored or foul smelling. When you open the compound mix the entire contents and then only remove what you think you will need for the project. Make sure that your tools are clean. Repeatedly inserting the drywall knife in the original container will contaminate the joint compound. When you are finished do not return any compound back to the original container. Cover the remaining compound in the original bucket with approximately 1" of clean water and replace the lid. Store at room temperature. When you open the lid for your next project pour off the water before remixing the compound. This will reduce the chance of mold growing on the compound. Thanks for choosing USG products.
A: Carol Thank you for your inquiry. Ready mix joint compounds can be applied up to 1/8" thick and setting type joint compounds can be applied up to 1/4" thick. If your design is thicker than 1/8" we do not recommend using ready mix joint compounds. Hope this helps.
A: No, you just use it as-is.
A: Deb Thank you for your inquiry. USG joint compound has not been tested over rigid foam insulation. We cannot recommend this application.
