    Default Another Knauf Thread - Joint Filler


    Jesus Christ, what have Knauf done to their Joint Filler? It's went from being a light brown colour, which stiffens up after 45 mins then takes 3 hours to set , to a BLACK filler that's a nightmare to work with and stiffen up after about half an hour. Black filler ffs!!!!
    I thought they were aiming to IMPROVE their gear ?

    Just looking at it reminds me of BG bonding compound , which if it was , would be probably better to use and not go off so quickly....

    looks like usg easy sand 90... great when they change ur gear and nobody tells u and when u ask no one knows. drywall is a joke in the uk. right from the people making the boards and taping gear through to the jokers selling it.
