Specialpopular finishing materials deservedly gypsum board.It not only quickly installed, but does not require a "wet" process allows you to create the structure and form of any complexity.
only drawback that arises during installation, sealing of joints drywall.If
sealing drywall seams made with violations of technology, with time on the joints cracks.And the question arises, and how to seal the seams in drywall, use a tool and related materials.

The procedure works

putty drywall seams made on the already assembled from sheets of drywall constructions, partitions, walls.
But without a properly sized tool supporting materials will not be able to perform quality work.

Remember!Putty joints gypsum board is recommended when the room temperature is higher than + 10ºC and relative humidity of not less than 60%.

For mixing the solution is better t

o use a small capacity and small volumes.

Remember!Mixing putty mixer solution is recommended to most low speed.At high speeds a large amount of air falls solution, which increases the porosity of the resulting solution, and hence, reduces its strength properties. When mixing by hand the quality of the mixture obtained above, but use the power tool increases the efficiency and productivity of work.
For mixing the solution, you can use any container, but it is best to use a plastic bucket or trough special.The main thing is that the capacity was convenient to wash after using the mixture.
Shpatlevanie drywall joints performed spatulas of various widths.The minimum width of 100 mm spatula.At large areas is desirable to use spatulas 350 mm wide.
For cleaning putty joints is recommended to use fine sandpaper, sanding mesh.Use sand mesh is more convenient, but its cost is much higher nazhdachki.Another building you need a knife.

Account materials

should be reserved primer deep penetration, filler for gypsum board joints, reinforced with tape.
We have repeatedly pointed out that it is not necessary to save on high-quality materials.The best supporting material, if grouting gypsum boards are co-products from Knauf, has developed a technology of using sheets of drywall.
for jointing plasterboard recommended dry putty mix Knauf Uniflot, which is based on gypsum binder with polymer additives or
There are other equally high-quality support materials, such as putty mixture fyugenfyuler.You just need to always remember all supporting materials must be from the manufacturer, which you bought drywall.

Remember!Do not skimp on the quality of finishing materials.The proverb: "miser pays twice" valid to the fullest.

procedure for jointing plasterboard

Surface preparation plaster

Phase I
Works should start with cleaning the surface of connecting nodes.
cope strip the solution using a wide spatula, remove the dust with a vacuum cleaner.Holding the trowel at an angle of 30º, passes through places of joints of sheets, removing any irregularities.
Screw cap screws protruding, sinking them to 1 mm.
damp cloth to remove dust from the surface.

We have a factory of gypsum boards, and cutting edge.Factory edge does not require training, but at the cutting edge at the ends it is necessary to chamfer.

Phase II
for chamfering on the cutting edge is used a special tool called a flange plane.It provides a chamfer at the ends of the cutting edge at an angle of 22, 5º.
Do not try to get a chamfer using a construction knife.
Availability chamfer facilitates bookmark layer of putty, which increases the strength of design.

Stage III
Place connections must be primed.The primer is applied with a roller or wide brush hammers finishing.The use of roller improves the process of rubbing the primer rather than the use for these purposes of the brush.
Allow time to complete drying of the primer layer.It is better if you start Shpatlevanie a day.

Cooking putty mixture
And what caulk the seams of drywall?
Special putty mixture is prepared strictly according to the instructions, no different improvisations and digressions.For jointing gypsum boards produced special mixture.They come in gray or beige.Color does not affect the quality of the solution.So what
putty seal the joints of drywall?
preferable to use a mixture of Knauf company specially developed for this technology.Recommended to use dry mixes Uniflot or Fugen Fyuler.
But there are other high-end counterparts, produced by various manufacturers.
Consistency solution should not resemble the density of liquid sour cream.
Remember!To prepare the solution should be as much as you can work out a solution within the period of life, it is 20 minutes.

Stage IV
Using a spatula was uniformly applied to the joints, spread with a wide spatula.Simultaneously shpaklyuyut cap screws.
layer of putty on joints with cut edge of the thinner layer at the junctions with the factory edge.

Stage V
reinforcing tape kurt
While wet plaster, applied at the seams special reinforcing tape and smoothed a wide spatula.Glueing increases the reinforcing tape seam strength, prevents cracks formed later.
recommended to use reinforcing paper tape Kurt or its analogs.The tape has high strength and protection from cracking.
reinforcement tape Kurt perfectly breathable, does not stretch easily and absorbs moisture.After drying, the tape does not bubble, does not cause cracks.From analog tape Kurt recommend
Do not use paper tape when terminating drywall seams.Paper tape is not breathable, does not absorb moisture.After drying, the paper web is bubbling, rising layer of putty.
Well, quite useless self-adhesive mesh tape, so beloved by Russian painters.It is easily stretched and has durability.
At the finish, a final grouting drywall putty.

final stage

Once dry docking seam trimmed with a spatula, if necessary, cleaned with sandpaper.The entire surface is covered with a layer of soil.

you noticed that jointing plasterboard with their hands is not complicated and can be done alone at home even novice master.
But to answer the question of how to seal the joints between the plasterboard, it is recommended to view instructional videos.


    - to get a quality docking station sheets of drywall, abutting edges must have a chamfer, the factory or using the planer;
    - chamfers must always be missed the mark deep soil permeability;
    - as reinforcement is recommended to use reinforcing paper tape Kurt or its analogs;
    - as putty is recommended to use a special mix for sealing joints drywall sheets.
    Video on grouting plasterboard will help you understand the intricacies of the work.
