Ruco Pail of Equalizer, 5 gal.
Equalizer is a specially formulated product designed to minimize surface
texture and porosity differences between wallboard face paper and finished joints in
new drywall construction. “Joint banding” and “photographing” are common problems
that occur due to the differences in absorption rates between drywall face paper and
joint compound. This is especially problematic when viewed in direct natural lighting
conditions. Ordinary primers/sealers do not adequately address this situation either
because they simply provide a film that covers the surface or they lack the necessary
type and amount of pigments and/or fillers. RuCoat Equalizer solves this problem
by equalizing the porosity of the wallboard face paper and joint compound, thus
minimizing the surface texture differences. The result is a more uniform surface that
dramatically improves the finish coat.
