If the damage is minor and superficial, i.e. paper surface scuffed of slightly indented, any roughness or the burring of the paper should be rubbed down with fine sand paper so that there is no paper left protruding, and the damaged area is filled flush with jointing compound in to layers, the first must be allowed to dry before the application of second.

Deep Impact Resulting From Heavy Impact Damaged Broken Edges

The remedial treatment required depends largely on the extent of damage. When the edge of the board has disintegrated it is necessary to remove the loose material. The surface of the board all-round the hole to be repaired should be scored about half an inch away from the sound plaster on the edges. A sharp knife should be used, held at 45 degree, leaning away from the hole. The paper is then peeled away and a coat of PVC sealer applied over the exposed surface and extended slightly over the cut edge on to the surrounding paper. This binds the paper edge and adjusts suction. The hole is then filled with jointing compound and struck off flush. It is advisable to use the material at a stiff consistency. When the filling sets, surface should be finished as described before.
