Have you checked the manufactureres websit ???Are you talking about paper
faced mold and moisture resistant sheetrock or the paper-less fiberglass
faced sheetrock ?? Paper faced I use paper tape and finish like like
normal..On Densarmour fiberglassed face I use Fiba-Tape mesh tape though I
hear there is a mold resistant fibrglass tape now made by Fiba-Tape , though
it may be hard to find..I think Homedepot has it...Atleast around here...The
Fiberglassed faced sheetrock requires the ENTIRE sheet be skimmed with
Easysand setting type joint compound as it is raw fiberglass and is
rough.....Use USG Durabond Setting Type Joint Compound for the first coat on
the tape and USG Easy Sand Setting Type Joint Compound to finish for both
the paperfaced and paper-less sheetrock...The Setting Type Joint Compounds
don't play well with mold for chemical reasons..Regular joint compound WILL
mold....Check the USG website for more info....
