New Drywall Compound Reduces Airborne Dust
From CertainTeed GypsumCertainTeed Gypsum launches two new revolutionary drywall compounds that significantly reduce the amount of dust traditionally associated with finishing gypsum walls and ceilings. The products—Dust Away™ Reduced Airborne Dust Drywall Compound and Renovation Mud™—join CertainTeed’s Easi-Fil™ and ProRoc® brands of finishing products currently available throughout Canada.
Using an innovative formula, enhanced with dust reduction technology from 3M, Dust Away Drywall Compound reduces the amount of airborne dust generated through sanding by more than 70% compared to standard drywall compound. The dust clumps and falls to the ground when sanded, making cleanup faster and easier. The all-purpose ready-mix drywall compound is suitable for taping and finishing wallboard joints, corner trims and fastener heads.
