There are many different brands of joint compounds, here are 3 types.
1. All purpose: Used for taping and texture. Can be used for coating, but shrinks more and sands harder.
2. Topping: Used for 1st and 2nd coats. It Shrinks less and sands much easier than all purpose.
3. Quick set or accelerated (Hot Mud): This comes in bags. It’s powder that you mix with water. Ranges in drying time from 5 minutes to 210 minutes. Be careful, once it starts setting up, there’s no stopping it, and it is very hard to sand.
Mud comes in pales, bags, buckets and boxes.
Before we applied the 20 minute mud to the walls I applied a portland based skim coat over the area that buckled loose.
I also could have used structo-lite and waited a day before the 20 minute mud to be applied
this video explains how we repair plaster on a few different areas throughout the home.
