Just like there are many different types of plasterboard, there are also many different types of plaster jointing compounds.

Jointing compounds are similar to plaster and are used with joint tape to seal joints between sheets of plasterboard. Broadly, there are two different kinds: drying types and setting types. Drying types tend to be fast to apply and easy to maintain, though they take a long time to dry and shrink as they do so. Setting types come as a powder and you add water before use. They set by chemical hardening rather than evaporation, like drying types do, which gives them an advantage in filling holes and gaps. This advantage is offset, however, by the fact that they are more time-consuming and difficult to use.

Beyond these two main types, there is even more variation in jointing compounds: from standard versions to compounds designed specifically for a hard finish. There is even a type of jointing compound especially created for bonding cornices.
