Sheetrock Total Lite Joint Compound with Dust Control

Sheetrock Total Life Joint Compound with Dust Control is formulated to reduce airborne sanding dust. It binds fine residue during sanding to form heavier particles that drop to the floor instead of clouding the air, and informs a cleaner job environment.

The compound weighs 30% less than conventional compounds and requires only two coats over metal, such as paper-faced corner beads and fasteners. It bonds like a taping product for a tough, tight bond under most job conditions and combines all-purpose, single-package convenience with optimum taping and topping performance.

Scope of Use

Sheetrock lightweight all purpose joint compound with dust control is compatible with all other USG joint compounds, so it can be used just for the joint finishing coats that will be sanded. For example, use Sheetrock all purpose joint compound for the taping coat and Sheetrock lightweight all purpose joint compound with dust control for the finishing coats.

Limitations on Use

Before using any epoxy coating over a surface treated with joint compound, consult the epoxy coating manufacturer and follow manufacturer recommendations for preparation or suitability of substrates. Many epoxy coatings exert significant shear stress on the substrate while curing/drying, which can cause the joint compound bond to fail, resulting in delamination problems.

Protect container from freezing, exposure to extreme heat and direct sunlight.
