Fast, smooth joint finishing

30% lighter than conventional FasTrack

  • Hardens quickly to an easy-to-sand finish for fast, smooth joint finishing.
  • Firmly holds to a knife until spread. Lightweight formula weighs 30% less than most conventional all-purpose joint compounds, allowing easier handling and faster application.
  • Provides a superior bond with exceptionally low shrinkage, plus increased crack and humidity resistance, even in heavy fills.

ProForm® FasTrack® Plus Setting Compound is a fast setting, hardening, sandable compound which is 30% lighter than conventional FasTrack. Thus, it requires less time and effort to work.

FasTrack Plus Compound is specifically formulated to allow a joint finishing job to be started in the morning and finished by the end of the day. Unlike many conventional all-purpose compounds, FasTrack Plus can be recoated as soon as the previous coat sets, allowing same-day joint finishing.

Advantages

  • FasTrack Plus’ setting formula hardens quickly to an easy-to-sand finish for fast, smooth joint finishing.
  • Mixes to a creamy, lump-free consistency that doesn’t roll up, drag, crater, or bubble.
  • Firmly holds to a knife until spread. Lightweight formula weighs 30% less than most conventional all-purpose joint compounds, allowing easier handling and faster application.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ready to answer your product and installation questions

Why is the product lumpy after mixing?

Possible reasons for this to occur are:

- Water was added to the setting compound, rather than the compound being added to the water.

- Setting compound was not allowed to soak (for approximately one minute) after the initial mix before remixing was initiated.

Why is the product setting much faster than the advertised range?

Possible reasons for this to occur are:

- Dirty mixing water and/or application tools.

- Excessive mixing of the compound.

- Foreign material (accidentally or deliberately) added to the mixture.

- Mixing water too hot.

Why is the product setting much slower than the advertised range?

Possible reasons for this to occur are:

- Too much water was used.

- Impure water source (dissolved organics in the water generally retard the set time).

- Foreign material (accidentally or deliberately) added to the mixture.

- Water too cold.

- The product was remixed after initial stiffening began.

Why does the product display weak strength?

Possible reasons for this to occur are:

- Too much water was used.

- Foreign material (accidentally or deliberately) added to the mixture.

What is the difference between “Working Time” and “Setting Time”?

Working time refers to the period during which the ProForm setting compound is usable for application. At the end of this time, the material begins to stiffen and can no longer be spread easily. Working time should correspond to the required time for the actual application.


Setting time refers to the time after which the applied ProForm setting compound will become adequately hardened so that another layer can be applied. For manufactured or modular builders, the setting time should match your timetable for moving a floor along the line.
