Yep, Boco's got it. Murco is the name I've always seen in the green trade referrals.

Re: Low VOC/No VOC Mud?


I actually did some research and found some No VOC haha.
http://www.keim.com/tabid/103/product/125/default.aspx

Also this, http://www.designerpages.com/product...Joint-Compound

Murco is only low VOC unfortunately.

I'm looking into healthier options to offers people, and also healthier options for my health!

you are looking for the M-100. Used it at an earthy a preschool. Not bad but still has some type activater in it. Dries a little slow a bit soft but workable. Be prepared to 4 coat screws, seams, and butts. Keep plenty of clean water nearby for hands and tools.

Re: Low VOC/No VOC Mud?


I would not use Muroc if it was the only material left on the planet. Ho, supplied material and had Murco deliver.. normally I would use my own,, but since it had been along time since I used the stuff,, I said what the heck I'll use it save some time on restocking, MISTAKE!!!! cost me twice the time it normally does,, just to get 2 coats on and touchup.. scratchy.. and I had to use a ton of water to thin the stuff down,, actually had to use my paddle and stomp it before I used the drill to stir it down.. This was two weeks ago on a custom garage.. with a vaulted ceiling. Never again.
