Questions & Answers

Can this product be used as a taping mud or what is recommended for quick setting joints.

Can this product be used as a taping mud or what is recommended for quick setting joints.
Asked by: James
James Thank you for your inquiry. Sheetrock Plus 3 Lightweight Joint Compound can be used for taping joints. Ready mix joint compounds are drying type. The drying time depends on the room temperature and humidity; as well as how thick the compound was applied. Setting type joint compounds such as Durabond and Easy Sand are sometimes referred to as "quick setting". They come in powder form and harden chemically once water is added. Hope this helps.
