Overview

Model # 380550 Store SKU # 1000407864

Dust Control Drywall Compound is a revolutionary product that reduces the mess associated with sanding drywall compound. Dust Control Drywall Compound goes on the wall as well or better than other leading drywall compounds, with the added value that when sanding most of the dust falls straight to the floor and doesn't float around in the air. It is an all-purpose compound that can be used to embed tape, fill and finish gypsum panels, bead, trims and fasteners. It can also be used for skim-coating over dry and non-glossy surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Premix Drywall Great Product. This is an excellent drywall compound. Far easier and smoother than a self mix powder. Needs room temperatures to cure. I used it to mud the drywall in my basement which was about 15C and the next morning had not set, but was fine after I turned up the heat. I thought that the 12 litre pail would be way more than I would require but ended up using almost all of it, so make sure you get enough. Also the dust control feature was really, really good and greatly reduced the amount of dust when sanding. This was a real time saver in the clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, easy to apply and low dust holds up Great product, added a cup of distilled water to mix to thin it slightly when adding mud layer. Otherwise great to use out of the bucket. The other reviews make no sense, people either used dirty water, or purchased a previously used / damaged product by other users. It happens a lot at home depot where returned used items are accepted back. Mud should be nice and smooth, pure white, and worked great for our application, purchased several of these pails in our basement renovation project.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Joints and gaps not hardening. I bought this product two weeks ago. Any joints that have gaps larger than an eighth of an inch are still soft after two days. Either I got a bad batch or this Dust Control product is not up to task. My house is dry and without moisture issues and the drywall is newly installed.

Having problems with drying! The 12L bucket I just purchased has been up for three days and is still beige colour and not drying. Two previous 4L (smaller) pales I purchased went up with no issues on drying time. Do I have a faulty batch?

Asked by: Whitby_fixeruppper
We are sorry to hear that the 12 L pail is not performing. To investigate this batch we will need you to call customer service 1-800-387-2690.

Do you have to mix this pail compound with water before you use it? Does it keep its consistency?

Asked by: Wasesname
This product does come ready-mixed, but some prefer to thin it with water for easier slip. Here are the preparation instructions from the pail. Before applying, store at 13–35 °C (55–95 °F) for 24 hours. Remix contents before use. When taping and finishing joints, thinning with water may improve application. Add clean water in 250 mL (1 cup) increments, remix and trial-apply until preferred consistency is reached. Over-dilution causes abnormal shrinkage, poor bond and other negative effects. Do not mix with any other material.

Can this product be used to create a stucco ceiling

Asked by: augie
I think it could be. You'd need a specialized roller such as Pintar Texture Stipple Roller 240MM Model # GL240.

Is this used for the final coat on walls?

I have used this product in the past and the it does not seem to dry hard enough to avoid sctatching and being prone to dents even after painting. Would it be best to top coat this with a harder compound?
Asked by: Anonymous
Dust Control is an all purpose compound and is ideal for final coats to help reduce dust when sanding.
