CertainTeed Lite Sand Plus 45 Lightweight Setting Compound - 8.1-kg - 300-sq. ft. is rated
Rated 5 out of
Excellent for taping, patching, installing corner beads and skim coating but a quality 3M reusable respirator is ESSENTIAL when mixing the compound. The reusable respirators and dust masks available at hardware stores aren't adequate to protect our health from drywall dust. I also use non powdered vinyl gloves as drywall dust and nitrile gloves as both cause different types of contact dermatitis.
I use a shop vac with yellow filtration bags if sanding is required to prevent the toxic drywall dust from settling on me.
