British Gypsum has updated Gyproc Joint Cement with a new and improved version – Gyproc QuickSand Joint Cement. The latest product has a range of benefits over its predecessor, achieving a better finish in a quicker time when taping and jointing.
Gyproc QuickSand Joint Cement is an air-drying jointing material that offers the perfect balance of strength and sandability, resulting in smooth, strong, ready-to-paint joints. The product is easier to sand (to a fine finish) than Gyproc Joint Cement for hand or mechanical application at all jointing stages, enabling faster installation and therefore less time spent onsite.
The jointing compound can be applied as a smooth finish requiring only a light sanding before decorating, reducing the release of dust particles in the air for the installer to breathe in. British Gypsum has also increased the size of its standard bag from 22.5 to 25kg which means that a single bag can now cover up to 80m2 of board.
Jeremy Simons, Product Manager at British Gypsum commented: “We’re delighted to bring Gyproc QuickSand Joint Cement to market in response to increasing customer demand for products that create sturdy joints fast. As a replacement to Gyproc Joint Cement, this new product provides strong adhesion to ensure sturdy joints with the added benefit of ease of sanding – so joints can be finished with minimal effort. We’re fully confident that users will find that it helps significantly in finishing jobs quicker. What’s more, as it is now available in 25kg bags users are getting better value than ever.”
Gyproc QuickSand Joint Cement forms part of the Gyproc jointing range. The product can be used over Gyproc Joint Filler when carrying out bulk and secondary filling of plasterboard joints. Although it can be used to great effect on its own, the product is best used in combination with other products from the Gyproc jointing range.
