Taping Bathrooms ?


Since nobody wants to talk about this over in drywall
I'll try here, maybe one of you has dealt with this?
I've been wondering ever since we started using
DensArmor in bath rooms, what do others use for tape and mud?
Seems a waste to use the paperless board
then finish with paper tape and same old mud.
Much as I hate fiber tape for anything but backer board
I have been using it on this, but I wonder
if there's something more mold resistant than
regular setting compound to bed and skim.
GP has something they recommend called
DensArmor Cote Ready Mix, but I can't find anything
that says what makes it any different to DuraBond.
Next job has a 5'X5˝' tub room that has always been
mildew heaven, even with a new 80cfm I want insurance here.

I was told once that Durabond is resistant to mold. Something in the chemical makeup.

Thanks for the response.
It's surely less absorbent.
I'll just keep googling 'til I hit on something relevant.
Just thought maybe somebody else
had researched this.

Neolitic, I read your post and made a couple of calls trying to find an answer for you since I never really thought about it, and what you said did make sense . Neither could answer the question but asked if they could call me back on Monday.

Next time you post a question on the drywall side we'll make sure to answer you're questions immediately!!!

Not good enough, he's a busy GC, back up to Tuesday and give him an answer before he asks the question.

Bunch of drywall slackers!

Damn straight!
Sometimes I seem to get lost in the shuffle,
and what with the battle of the sexes and all....
