Addressing the problem of time-consuming cleanup of drywall finishing projects, CertainTeed Gypsum is rolling out new products in the western United States.
Dust Away Reduced Airborne Dust Drywall Compound and Dust Away Renovation Mud feature innovative technology that reduces the amount of airborne dust generated through sanding by more than 70% compared with standard drywall compound.
The products were originally launched in the Canadian market in 2009.
Specifically, the technology used in Dust Away and Renovation Mud causes the dust associated with traditional compound sanding to clump together and fall to the floor, reducing airborne dust and making cleanup faster and easier.
“The Dust Away products combine the quality of CertainTeed’s ready-mix drywall compounds with the added benefit of our new reduced airborne dust formula,” said Stephen Reynolds, marketing manager for CertainTeed Gypsum. “Now our customers can tackle any remodeling, renovation or repair job with less airborne dust, resulting in cleaner work environments and improved productivity.”
