Konstrukt® Durafill™ K101 Gypsum Putty
 
DESCRIPTION: Konstrukt® Durafill™ K101 Gypsum Putty is an asbestos-free formulation, water-based, high quality gypsum putty to be used specifically over joints and patching holes on gypsum boards. It contains sufficient binder to secure the reinforcing tape and develops its strength and hardness with drying. The product has the advantage of minimal shrinkage, better crack resistance, excellent sandability and paint compatibility. It is best used as a finishing layer to either Konstrukt® Durafill™ K102 Titanium Putty or Konstrukt® Durafill™ K103 Fast-Setting Gypsum Compound.

1st COAT - BEDDING AND TAPPING
  1. Stir lightly if liquid separation is observed.
  2. Evenly fill the plasterboard joint recess with Konstrukt® Durafill™ K103 Fast-Setting Gypsum Compound using a plasterers’ broad knife. (A 3mm gap between boards is recommended to make sure enough material is used.)
  3. Center the joint tape and press down into the fresh plaster. Remove excess Konstrukt® Durafill™ K103 Fast-Setting Gypsum Compound with a broad knife drawn along the joint at an angle approximately 45 degrees to the plasterboard surface. Care should be taken to ensure no air bubbles remain below the tape. Sufficient putty should be left under and over the tape to ensure a proper bond.
  4. When the tape is embedded, apply a thin coat of Konstrukt® Durafill™ K103 Fast-Setting Gypsum Compound over fastener heads.
FINISHING COAT

  3. After finishing of Konstrukt® Durafill™ K101 Gypsum Putty has dried completely, scrape back or sand back to a smooth finish.
