Frequently Asked Questions

Ready to answer your product and installation questions

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.

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.

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.

Possible reasons for this to occur are:

- Too much water was used.

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

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.
