KNAUF DRYWALL MAKES LIGHTER WORK OF EASY SAND JOINTING
Further product improvements have put even more ease into Knauf Drywall’s popular ready-mix Joint Cement Lite Easy Sand. The product now offers additional time and effort savings for the contractor – as well as improved joint quality.
Knauf Joint Cement Lite Easy Sand is now even lighter, as well as faster and simpler to sand – joint edges can be feathered finely for a seamless, invisible finish. It also offers greater resistance to cracking and excellent adhesion. All this adds up to time, cost and waste saving for the drywall contractor. This reinforces its position as the choice product for completing taped joints on Knauf Drywall tapered edge plasterboards.
Packed as before in 12.7 litre tubs – enough for 40m2 – Knauf Joint Cement Lite Easy Sand now weighs in about 2kg lighter at 14kg per tub. This makes it easier to handle for the contractor – and also for builders merchants, who will be able to stock more because pallet loads of 48 tubs are now stackable for more efficient use of floor space at the trade counter. And its shelf life has been increased by 50% so, if necessary, it can be stored for longer. Because it is factory mixed, consistent high quality is assured.
Knauf Joint Cement Lite Easy Sand is an air-drying compound for bedding tapes, filling joints and finishing. It is ready for use, straight from the tub, and is suitable for application by hand or machine.
Knauf Drywall Product Manager Stuart Hiscott says: “We have worked with industry professionals to improve the properties of the product even further, in direct response to customers’ needs. With these improvements, Knauf Joint Cement Lite Easy Sand should be the first choice for any dry lining contractor.”
