About This Product

USG Sheetrock Brand Dust Control Joint Compound is a lightweight, ready-mixed compound featuring a unique formula that binds up fine residue during sanding to form heavier particles that tend to fall to the floor instead of clouding the air. Each job finishes more quickly and cleans up faster with less nuisance from airborne sanding. Use for embedding USG Sheetrock Brand Paper Joint Tape, applying drywall filling and finishing coats, and covering fasteners and USG Sheetrock Brand Corner Bead and Trim. USG ready-mixed joint compounds are preferred for consistently high-quality work. Superior formulations are premixed to a creamy, smooth consistency and are essentially free of crater-causing air bubbles. They can be used in hand or machine-tool applications and offer excellent slip, bond, and easy workability.

Highlights

  • Pre-mixed compound for minimal mixing, thinning and retendering
  • Bonds like a taping product for a tough, tight bond
  • May be considered as an engineering control under OSHA and NIOSH regulation and guidance documents
  • GREENGUARD Gold certified for low-emitting performance
  • Return Policy

Answer This Question

A:  Phil- The USG Sheetrock® Brand Dust Control Ready-Mix Joint Compound has great open/working time and will remain workable in your pan as you apply it to the substrate. Setting time can range from several hours to several days depending on the scope of the project, application (fill, float, skim, etc.) and job site conditions. The ambient temperature, relative humidity, and air flow in the space can all affect how long it take this product to completely cure. The shelf life is 9 months from date of manufacturer.

      Q:Why is it that after I use this to patch, when I prime and paint that area it is noticeable and doesn?t take the paint roller marks to match the rest of the wall? It just stays smooth
      by|Apr 12, 2023

      Answer This Question

      A:  Use a can of texture paint to spray on & around the area before priming. That will blend the smooth surface with the painted surfaces.  Unfortunately, that’s just how it comes out after patching (with any type of mud) if the texture paint isn’t used.

      by|Apr 15, 2023

        A:  Mine did the same thing. I am not sure might be a question to ask someone who works at a paint store like Sherwin Williams. 

        by|Nov 25, 2023

          A:  The marks on your wall are likely due to an orange peel or other kind of texturing product and are not from your paint brush/roller.  You will need to add that texture over your patch prior to painting it. These types of products can be purchased separately.  A good roller will leave minimal marks on your wall and shouldn’t produce a texture.

            A:  Kate Thank you for your inquiry. If the area you patched has a smooth glossy appearance, typically this is from over working the mud once it has started to cure or applying a layer on one which has not dried yet. Hope this helps.

              Q:Can I use this to skim coat painted walls?
              by|Mar 12, 2023
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  Yes it can be used for skim coating. If you use a roller for it just cut it with a bit of water. Mix to about a yoghurt like feel. Roll and smooth out. (Use a 14 inch or wider smoothing tool)

                A:  Jimmy Thank you for your inquiry. USG recommends using Sheetrock All Purpose Joint Compound or Sheetrock Plus 3 Joint Compound for skim coating. If the walls have already been painted use fine sand paper or mesh to lightly sand them before applying the skim coat. Hope this helps.

                  Bucket filled with mold!
                  I have been buying joint compound for many years with no issues. I opened and used some of this and then put the bucket with the remaining joint compound in my garage with the top securely on. After a few months I needed to use some more and the bucket was filled with mold. Really bad!

                    Great crafting product
                    I'm a crafter who loves Christmas but has limited resources. I saw extra large get lawn ornaments in catalogs & fell in love, but the prices were prohibitive. I found my own workaround using large children's play balls. I covered them with several layers of newspaper soaked in white glue. Then a layer of paper soaked in a diluted slurry of joint compound. Last layer was joint compound, straight out of the bucket. Let everything dry completely between layers. These are meant to be outside so waterproofing was important. So, next, a coat of oil-based gesso. Then a craft paint called Patio Paints. And lastly, a coat of your oil-based Varathane Spar Urethane.

                    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.
