That's good to know! Thank you! There's no mention of that on the pail!

Re: What to fill USG veneer with?


We are doing some plaster repairs today. We do them all the time. My preferred method is to use a chisel and cut a channel into the plaster just wide enough and deep enough to accept taper tape. Say I/8"-1/4" deep by 2 -1/4" wide. V and Prefill the crack with durabond or smoothset. Then bed the tape into taping compound in the channel you have created. After these coats are dry fill the channel with joint compound until the channel is flush to the wall. If it is integral color plaster you either have to faux paint to match color or use the properly tinted plaster. If you use plaster you must immediately cover the patch with light plastic so it remains wet up till the set time. Plaster cannot be allowed to dry out before natural set has occurred.

Actually 1/16" to 1/8" deep channel is correct.
