Dilute with warm water and mix well
Works well. Make no mistake what ever room you are working in with be dusty but the compound sands well and most of it drops to the ground. I found I don't get as much coverage as the regular compound but the clean up is easier. Just remember to dilute it with a bit of warm water so it spreads easier. Use the right combination knives and don't try to get it perfect with a 2 in plastic knife. Diluting with a bit of water thins it out and it dries faster.Sanding will be a lot easier as well if it was applied right. I add a bit more water when it comes to the final coat with the 12 inch knife. And forget the sanding sponges. If you are doing a room or basement, spend the extra 30 dollars and invest in the sanding tool.

Very thin, hard to work with
I do a lot of renovation and remodel work. I decided to try this out instead of my regular Certainteed blue box ready mix. I wanted to keep the dust down in my customers house as much as possible. It's not a good product. It was very thin out of the bucket and a pain in the butt to keep on the hawk. It doesn't spread nicely either, very uneven and I spent an extra day skimming and filling in uneven spots. It did sand easily and most of the dust went right to the floor.

This compound has been great to work with. It really does reduce the amount of dust! I like it better then similar products of other brands having used both quite a bit.
As stated by other other reviewers you MUST MIX IT!
This is true with most compound, pre mixed is just easier to start.

Terrible stuff if mixed with water.
This drywall joint compound works great if applied without adding water and sands easily. Tried adding water to the product after I noticed it was getting to thick on my tray and it dried on the wall a darker shade then normal which made it dificult to tell if the finish was smooth.
The finish was also very hard to sand when water was added to the product.
I probably added to much water but would never buy this product again.
Made my job more dificult , will never buy this product again.
