Big Box Letdown: Where to Buy Hot Mud & Plaster Bonder?


I'm doing some plaster repair and I've been advised to buy 'hot mud' with a 30-90 minute cure time and also bonder (a liquid to paint on existing walls before applying plaster and also as an additive to use in a plaster/joint compound mixture).

I'm in Brooklyn , NYC and went out last night to Home Depot to try and score supplies: they do not sell hot mud (or know what it is. Ditto with the bonder liquid). Scratching head.

What sort of store would sell these supplies?

Thanks for the links.

I was instructed to stay away from lightweight compound for the task I'm doing.
I'm looking for regular weight compound, and if at all possible a 40 minute cure.

Paint store of decent size or a lumber yard or similar building supply store should have it. Durabond is one old brand name but I think they were bought out long ago. It is sort of referred to that way generically some times though---like Kleenex for tissue.

I just posted the one link to serve as an example, both HD and Lowes carry the heavy weight as well. Your better off to just go to the drywall section and look for yourself rather then ask an employee. I have only seen the 45 and 90 minute available in those stores in the heavy weight. If you can't find it there try a local paint store or drywall supply outlet.

At this site, the concrete bonder (on the right will work) but you need to enter your other store close to you for the 90 min.: http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...s&N=4294896835

Thanks.


PS: the Home Depot I went to only had the lightweight (I think 40 minute) and in 50lb bags. I looked all over and asked, no other type.
