Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

For mechanical mixing, add to the mixing container 7.5-8.8 liters of water for each 20kg bag of Gypsum Joint Compound. Add the powder to the water and mix with a mechanical plaster mixer, or with a low-speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle. Mix for 3-4 minutes, until achieving a uniform, lump-free consistency.

Leave the mixed material to stand for 10 min, and briefly remix without the addition of water.

Mix small batch quantities manually for approx. 1-2 min, or until achieving a  homogenous mix.

When required, add 0.5 liters of Vetobond AB432 to the mixing water, and adjust the water requirement for each 20kg bag accordingly. Follow the same mixing procedure as above.

Use the mixed material within 2 hours. Do not add water once the mixed filler mortar starts to stiffen or harden.

Application

Generally, apply Gypsum Joint Compound in a single coat. Spread the Gypsum Joint Compound to the area with a wide spatula, while filling and pressing firmly into the joints.

Place Joint Tape over the joints with a small spatula, spread the excess compound over the joint tape, and level it smoothly to the surface while edging out to the sides. Use Saveto Bond 2 before fixing the tape for better adhesion. After hardening, smooth rub the joints to the desired finish.

Apply Gypsum Joint Compound manually or by spray machine as a skim coat on top of the gypsum board to achieve a uniform smooth surface.

Curing

Gypsum Joint Compound sets and cures on its own at room temperature.


Cleaning

Clean all tools with water immediately after finishing. Clean hardened materials mechanically.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc.
