I doubt that it contains asbestos, although you would have to contact the company for a definitive answer. However, it does contain attapulgite clay, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer.

I wanted a textured almost Mediterranean look on the walls and I accomplished it easily with this wall compound.

Wish I woul have read reviews...
Terrible all the way around. It takes so long to dry and even when it does, its very soft and not durable at all. Ive been working on coating the surrounding frame of my daughters closet for over a week because it takes so many coats and so long to dry and gets damaged with the slightest bumb against it. On top of that, its called Dust Control, which ahould be considered false advertisement. Even with the fan on, windows open and a shopvac to catch the dust, my fire alarm went off TWICE because the dust was literally SO THICK in the air. It was terrible. These pictures show just some of the dust that fell from hand sanding a 10”x5’ strip on the wall. Will be returning because this is a complete rip off.

Smooth mix. Good consistency for use on paper or mesh tapes. Works for tape coat, skim coat, touch up and texturing. Holds well and did not sag, crack or shrink. Reasonable drying time. Good value for the size/volume. Good size for patch work. Nothing to mix. Easy clean up.
