Taping and mudding is the process that joins pieces of drywall into a single solid wall. Drywall tape and coats of drywall compound are applied to reinforce joints and conceal screws and nails. When taping and mudding are done correctly, the wall is flat and smooth and the seams underneath are hard to see.

Types of Joint Compound

There are different types of joint compounds used for mudding drywall. The choices of mud come in either “dry” or “wet” varieties.

  • Lightweight all-purpose drywall mud
  • All-purpose mud
  • Topping mud
  • Pre-mixed “Wet” mud
  • Dry Mud

Joint compound is primarily used to bind two surfaces together. One of the most important properties of joint compound is adhesion. There are many types of adhesives that vary in price and ease of use.

Joint compound is a type of adhesive which dries to form a tough, flexible seal. There are many types of joint compound, including general-purpose compounds, medium- or heavy-duty compounds and specialty compounds. General-purpose compounds are suitable for most jobs while medium-duty compounds are preferred where more strength and durability is needed.

Lightweight all-purpose drywall mud

Drywall mud is used to create a smooth, consistent surface on drywall without the need for a taping knife. It also allows you to shape your drywall with less effort while increasing the strength of the walls. This is a lightweight drywall mud created to use in multiple drywall applications. It is non-toxic and meets ASTM D4760 standards. This product has a clean, crisp finish that will last about two weeks before having to be re-coated.

All-purpose mud

Dry mud is an all-purpose drywall compound that can be used to seal drywall joints. It can also be used as a joint compound and as a primer. Most importantly, it can be used to repair damaged drywall.

Topping mud

Lighter weighted than all-purpose mud, usually used in finishing coats.

Pre-mixed “Wet” drywall mud

Liquid drywall mud is a pre-mixed liquid drywall mud that is mixed with water before it’s used. It can be applied as thin as one inch or up to two inches thick. It can also be used in place of sand as it won’t create dust particles during the application process.
