    Construction Materials

    Guys,

    Anyone know what the thai names are for the following:

    1) Joint Compound (the thing you use in between gypsum boards)
    2) Joint compound mesh tape (the grid looking tape that goes on the joints beneath the joint compound)
    3) Stucco

    Pictures of products would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Kim

    1. Wall Putty (Gypsum Pow)
    2. Putty Tape (Pow Tape) Hard to find picture but after you get the "Wall Putty" point your finger to the wall putty on your hand and ask for the "Tape" or "Tape Pow" and the "Kreang Pow" (below)
    3. Stucco (Kreang Pow)

    Pow (High Tone like Bolt but Pow!) : behavior that you fill some thing in to the hole or space and make it smooth surface with stucco.

    You can found alll in Homepro. Where did you leave?

    Gypsum, once they give you that ask for tape, its a cloth tape they use here, UK we use paper, you shouldn't need wall putty, just use gypsum powder mixed with water.

    When you say stucco I assume you mean textured paint, make your own, white water based glue, rough sand and a can of emulsion paint mixed together.

    If he's American would be cement/plaster render with textured finish or sand/stones embedded.

    He might be refering to what is used on the ceiling to give it a texture. In the states, most in the trade use sheetrock mud, gypsum paste applied with a stiff brush.

    Guys,

    Thanks for all the replies. The stucco I'm referring to is this: Stucco Overview | Portland Cement Association (PCA)

    Apparently the official name is Portland Cement Plaster... is that Kreang Pow that Ultrawee is talking about?

    Thanks again.

    I thought that had been banned in the 70's on account of bad taste
