Forum Title: Hot mud users
Good evening all, Lately we've been hitting a snag at work involving our mud. We use Sheetrock brand's Tufset and Easysand 45 to tape and coat. What we have been seeing lately is what I can only attribute to a delayed shrinking of the mud. We tape and bed with Tufset, then second and third coat with EasySand. We always wait for it to set before running another coat. The seams look good and when gauged out with a blade are flat. They dry and then are sanded and painted. A few days later, when the unit is farther up the line, you can see where the beveled seams are, and when gauged the tapers are hollow. Does anyone have any ideas on how we can attack this? We do not use mud that is too thin, with our power-assist boxes, if the mud is too thin it just pushes the mud right out of the box and onto the floor.
