Jointing Jointing is the process of covering and reinforcing the join between sheets to give a flush, seamless appearance. Paper Tape is bedded into the compound giving a stronger joint. Easy Tape is a self adhesive mesh that is stuck directly to the board and can be used where strength is not critical. Recessed Joints For recessed joints use a three coat system as follows. Tape Coat 1 Fill recess in plasterboard evenly and fully with Gyprock Total Joint Cement or Multi-Purpose Joint Compound using a 150mm broadknife. 2 Bed in Gyprock Paper Tape centrally over the joint and cover lightly with compound. 3 Cover all fastener heads. 4 Allow to dry and harden for at least 24 hours, until the compound appears dry. Second Coat 1 When the tape coat is dry, sand off any lumps and apply a second coat, about 170mm wide, finishing slightly above the board surface 2 Smooth the joint edges with a trowel to remove any lip to reduce sanding.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
