Gyproc® jointing products can provide the specified levels of fire resistance and sound insulation when it comes to sealing linings.
There is nothing more satisfying than a job well done, right?
Jointing, also known as taping, is a process used in plasterboard installation to create smooth and seamless joints between individual sheets of plasterboard.
When plasterboard sheets are installed on walls or ceilings, there are visible seams where the tapered edges of the boards meet. Jointing is the technique used to conceal these seams and create a uniform finish. This method is an alternative to skimming, where the whole surface of the plasterboard is covered with a thin layer of plaster.
You can start by selecting the correct jointing compound. It is possible to find ready-mixed compounds which are easy to use such as Gyproc® Ready Mix Joint Cement. This air-drying ready mixed jointing material is for use over Gyproc® Joint Filler in hand jointing, or for all application stages with mechanical jointing tools - saving time by eliminating the mixing stage.
