Sheetrock Dust Control is a lightweight, premixed finishing compound designed for use as the final coat over plasterboard joints. The Sheetrock Dust Control system weighs up to 25% less than USG Boral's conventional joint compounds making it easier to handle. It also has minimal shrinkage and can help reduce work time.
The unique new formula reduces the amount of respirable airborne dust during sanding. Respirable dust is generated in work places when jointed plasterboard walls and ceilings are sanded using hand or mechanical sanders. Sheetrock Dust Control limits the pluming of sanded compound dust through air spaces. Technology contained in the product produces dust particles, which fall directly to the wall or floor junction and react better to the vacuum of mechanical sanders. The result is far less airborne dust, which results in a tidier worksite and a cleaner breathing environment.
Tested to the USA’s National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) Method 0600, Sheetrock Dust Control produces respirable airborne dust at levels lower than the USA’s current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs) that are lower than the current PELs set by Safe Work Australia.
Features and benefits:
- Lightweight and premixed for easy use
