Step by step instructions for Using Tape In Mud™️
Liagle Tapeless Joint Compound acts like a welding rod on the joint of the adjacent two drywall pieces.
Liagle Tapeless Joint Compound filled the V-cut butt joint like a rivet strip.
For inside corners, the gap is only on one side of the corner, finishing the gap side is sufficient.
If the gap is on both sides, fill the cavity and finish both side of the corner with a flusher or corner trowel.
Gap is on one side of the corner: Fill up the gap and only finish the gap side of the corner. No inside corner bead is needed.
Gap on both sides of the corner: Fill the gap and finish with an adjustable corner trowel.
1 bag of Tape In Mud™️ mix with 1 bag of fast set powder (8-12 kg)
2 bags of Tape In Mud™️ mix with 1 box of 17 Liters premixed all purpose or taping compound for the first coat.
1 bag of Tape In Mud™️ with 1 box of premixed for the second coat.
Premixed All Purpose Joint Compound.
Premixed Drywall taping compound.
Setting type drywall joint compound.
Put 1 bag ( 8-12 kg) of the setting-type compound in a clean and dry 5 gallon pail. Put 1 bag Tape In Mud™️ in the bucket, mix with paddle and drill for 5 minutes.
Make sure the fibres are dispersed uniformly in the powder.
According to how much mud you want to mix, put some water in mud pan first, then add some setting-type compound, mix it throughly.
Put 1 box of 17 Liters premixed joint compound in a 5 gallon bucket.
Add 2 bags of Tape In Mud™️ to the bucket, for the first coat of mudding.
Mix only One bag of Tape In Mud™️ with 1 box of 17 litres premixed joint compound for second coat.
Adding water gradually while mixing.
Cut the paper away from tears and soft spots where the gypsum core is crushed. This allows the drywall compound to reach and solidify these weak areas. A loose or torn paper surface will come back to haunt you when it causes bubbles later or pokes through the final finish. Use fibreglass tape for gaps wider than 1 inch.
Slide a 6-in. drywall knife across all the fasteners. A metallic click will alert you that the screw is protruding above the face of the drywall. The problem often occurs along corners. Drive screws in with a twist of a Phillips screwdriver.
Hold a utility knife at an angle and slice off the drywall edges to create the groove.
V grooving is very important for tapeless drywall finishing. It allows the Tapeless Mud to form a rivet strip on the joints. (See Figure 2 )
