Why Do Drying Times for Compounds Differ?

Wednesday, 13 April 2022

As we move into a new season, just a quick reminder that drying times for compounds differ depending on temperature. As conditions change, compounds become harder or softer to sand. The GIB Trade Finish® range ensures a product is available that has similar trowelling properties through the range, but different sanding characteristics to suit different seasons/drying conditions. The warmer the weather, the harder the product will become to sand. The colder the weather, the softer the same product will become to sand.
