- Always use clean cold water, tools and containers.
- Do not mix with residues of previously used compounds; use of dirty tools or containers may reduce working time and strength.
- Always add EasyJoint™ 20 to water (5kg of powder to 2.5kg of water).
- Mix only enough EasyJoint™ 20 to meet needs.
- Mix by hand or with a power mixer (max of 400rpm) until a workable paste has been achieved.
- Caution: Do not overmix. Overmixing can introduce air bubbles, which can create surface imperfections and reduces working time.
- Once setting has commenced the material cannot be remixed and must be discarded.
- Surfaces must be clean and free from dust.
- The use of paper tape is recommended such as USG Boral Paper Joint Tape.
- Ensure there is sufficient amount of compound under the paper tape to provide adhesion.
