Joint Compound


Joint Compound

Joint Compound, also known as drywall compound, is a key material in the construction industry. It is primarily used for covering seams and joints between pieces of drywall to create a smooth and seamless surface.

Joint Compound is a versatile material that can be used for a variety of other applications, such as repairing cracks, holes, and gaps in walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. Kemox products can be used in joint compound production, providing improved properties and performance.


Why Chose Kemox™ Cellulose

Joint Compound Description

The main ingredients in joint compound include gypsum powder and water. Other additives can also be included in the mixture to improve its properties, such as plasticizers, thickeners, and preservatives. Joint compound is applied to drywall seams using a putty knife or trowel. It is then sanded down to provide a smooth and even surface for painting or wallpapering. Joint compound is used in a wide range of applications in the construction industry, including residential and commercial projects.

Product application characteristics
