During the course of a working day, a drywall finisher lifts, carries, and applies a total weight of over 900 lbs. of ready-mixed joint compound. The advanced X-tra Lite Drywall Compound, exclusively from CGC Inc., weighs up to 35% less than conventional compounds. Handling and applying are simpler, easier, and faster for the mechanic. Each job goes more quickly for increased job turnover, so productivity is higher and in-place costs are lower.
