    New Drywall Joint Compound....?

    I was wondering if any of you had seen or used this stuff?

    Neat stuff, if it works as advertised

    Hi Stu, I don't think that there is a dust free drywall product. It is like saying there is dust free sand paper. I am sure that there is some market for the stuff but all the companies that I have worked with all use the regular muds.

    Drew, they are not saying it is "Dust Free" they are saying that because of it's composition, there is very little of the very fine dust that gets everywhere.

    I think that if it is true, for renovation work, it would be great!

    It helps the dust from sanding fall straigth down instead of floating around. Works pretty good.

    Al, is it a lightweight, almost foamy material when wet? I used some wall patch stuff a few years ago that was real light in weight, but once it dried it was pretty decent, and it seemed to sand cleaner than regular drywall mud. It was weird to apply, though. It didn't tool the same way, as I recall.

    Got a handyman buddy that likes the stuff a lot. He just did a bunch of patches for me that I will be sanding over the next couple of days. I'll let you know how it turns out.
