It will hold up, but I would use 90 it will go a lot further .....or you could use reg joint compound

My guys and I recently talked about using 90 for more working time do you think it will be better as far as moving with wood because it has less plaster content than 20,the reason I'm bringing all this up is on a job our 20 min is popping back out a little but I don't think it's something we did ,the carpenter nailed all the trim with a very small gauge finish nailer and I think the wood is moving and shrinking a little,what do ya think?thanks regs

Mud in trim holes? Really? At least it ain't caulk. I use Elmers brand wood putty.

If the wood is not completely dry that may happen, is it all over or just in a few areas?

I have one builder that pays extra to have us fill the holes with joint compound....it takes more time but it turns out really well, I only do a couple houses a year for him

Doesn't mud shrink? And I would think it wouldn't be very solid? I've seen some sort of filler I thought was joint compound come popping out before when work was being done adjacent to the area.

That's what I would of thought too...we over fill the hole some then sand it off,it works pretty well....after we first coat trim if we see any that need more we take care of it, never had any come out yet

Setting compound doesn't shrink like the premixed air dry compound out of a pail , plus I think it has better bond,aren't we all over worked and underpaid these days? Thanks

Do you think because they nailed it with thin nails and maybee they didn't let wood acclimate enough before installing now the wood is pulling back and 20 min is popping in some spots?

I would think you would have less problems with smaller nails....without looking at it I'm not really not sure what is going on, hope all goes well.

When you used 90 min how wet did you make it ,maybee we didn't use enough water we like a stiff mix so we can handle it easier

Easy to sand, not near as tough as water putty.

We've used this before over a couple of years and never had an issue ,I just hope every nail starts to pop back a little,I'm hope it was just some shrinkage and wood moving a little that made some areas where the filler popped up a little, what do ya think?

We were using the 20 min lightweight easysand never had a problem over years I hope it was just some movement and shrinkage in wood that made them pop back out a little, what do you think? You don't think they are all going to start poppin back do ya? I don't have a solution if that happened.thanks for the help guys.

Regs,
Without looking at it its hard to say. I always use lightweight on trim, put it on thick and then sand it down. Never had a problem. Hope it works out for you.
