    Wink ssshhh it's our secret!


    Are you sick of clients dictating what materials? " It's a Knauf/BG spec so you must use thier taping materials"

    I have the defance you require.

    www.gpda.com/pdfs/product_compatability_statement.pdf

    The GPDA has three members BG, Knauf & Lafarge so makes it hard for any of them argue

    Sshhh remeber this is the building trades biggest secret lets keep it discreet

    Can anyone else can gain access to this exclusive group?

    They are open to new members I believe but they don't make it easy.

    I have heard that metal stud manufacturers, distributors and even taping material manufacturers have tried. with no success

    Knauf are one of the companies named in the toxic drywall stories in Florida. Better watch they don't fall too hard off that high horse.
