Product Preparation

Keep Vetogyps Compound containers at room temperature for 24 hours before use. Use directly from the container. Stir contents lightly if needed. 

Application

Apply Vetogyps Compound over dry gypsum surfaces and gypsum board surfaces either manually or by spray machine. When using Vetogyps Compound for skim coating, work the mixed material to a smooth level using a putty knife. Allow each coat to dry completely before recoating and sanding. Sand Vetogyps Compound surface with care using grit paper. The final coat should be applied to a smooth finish.

Finishing Inside Corners

Apply compound to both corner sides using a putty knife. Fold tape along the center crease. Press into position. Embed tape with a putty knife. Remove excess compound and apply a thin coat over the tape. Let dry and apply a second coat on one side. Let dry and then cover the other side. When dry, sponge smooth if necessary.

Finishing Outside Corners

Fasten metal corner bead. Apply three coats of Vetogyps Compound and allow to dry between coats, smooth the surface with a wet sponge, if necessary. Extend the first coat onto the gypsum panel using the suitable putty knife.
