non-toxic joint compound

stonefarmer's picture

are there any joint compounds that don't have v.o.c.'s and vinyl? i'm building a new house and i'm trying to keep the indoor air quality at it's best,and don't neccesarily want to plaster the entire wall area.  thanks

I see you're a stone farmer. How deep to you have to plant stones in order to get a good crop ???

I'm at a similar point in my housebuilding project, and curious what you decided on the drywall joint compound.  I see that the Proform Ultra mentioned in this thread is indeed VOC and vinyl free, but I am not able to get it locally.  The USG Sheetrock brand joint compound (the stuff that seems to be for sale in all the stores) is VOC free, but does contain vinyl alcohol polymer. 

Have you found any other alternatives?
