q & a

  • Why do stains appear when retexturing a wall or ceiling?

    Over time stains settle into a wall or ceiling. When that area is retextured the stains photograph through causing a yellowing or browning effect. The best way to prevent staining is to apply a stain blocker, primer, and sealer.

  • What is the best compound to use for repairing cracks?

    Sheetrock® Brand Durabond® Setting-Type Joint Compounds and Sheetrock® Brand Easy Sand™ Lightweight Setting-Type Joint Compounds are the best products to use for repairing cracks.

    If you want to use a ready-mixed joint compound, Sheetrock® Brand All Purpose Joint Compound works well.

  • Can I use two different joint compounds on the same joint? Can I mix two joint compounds together to save time?

    Yes, different joint compounds can be used over each other.

    No, different joint compounds should never be mixed with each other.

  • What is the fire rating of joint compound?

    Joint compound does not have a fire rating by itself, but does meet ASTM C475. When fire testing a wall the fire rating is not for individual products, but for all the system components together. USG Joint Compounds are used in numerous fire-tested assemblies. These are outlined in USG Publication SA100 Construction Selector.

  • What is the cause of blistering joints?

    Blistering joints are the result of not having enough joint compound under the tape. The best way to repair blistering joints is to open up the blistered area by slitting the tape. Fill the cut with joint compound and press tape back in place with knife blade.

  • Can joint compound be used as an adhesive for multi-layer application?

    Yes. Sheetrock® Brand Durabond® Sheetrock® Brand Easy Sand™, Sheetrock® Brand All Purpose, and Sheetrock® Brand Joint Taping Compounds provide the best performance bonding gypsum panels.

  • Can additives be mixed into joint compound?

    There are various products in the market which, when mixed with joint compounds, claim to improve various performance attributes of joint compounds.

    USG does not endorse the use of additives in USG joint compounds for the following reasons:

    An additive can adversely affect the unique balance of the many performance attributes each joint compound has been formulated to provide.

    It is virtually impossible for an additive manufacturer to know if their additive is compatible at all times with all of USG's product formulations.

    USG has no control over the manufacture and quality of additives manufactured by others.

    Note - For taping and finishing joints, water can be added as necessary. USG recommends adding water in increments of a half-pint to avoid over thinning.

    See USG Technical Information Sheet J1716 for more information.
