There are quite a few Ritmos out there being used now. I am curious for feedback.
What do you use your Ritmo for ?
Does the Ritmo do what you expected it to do ?
Does the Ritmo do what you were told it would do ?
Have you found the Ritmo not up to any job you asked of it ?
Anybody used it ? I have just read the spec and it says not to use below 20 degrees. Any ideas why not. I was gonna use it this week temps about 12-15 degrees in the day down to 5-8 degrees in the night. Not done an overnighter yet this year.:rolleyes)
anyone ever seen this applied. It looks like a 1mm fine aggregate been pebble dashed to wall. My guess to apply it is lay a tight coat of maite or similar over the base coat and spray the aggregate at the wall using a hopper gun.
Anyone seen it done

Have a look at this. They are using mineral render equivalent to NOBLO ( same as bucket coat but you mix with water) its a 2 man team using a machine to help them. They have the whole elevation on in under 5 minutes. Thats mixed and on the wall and it then leaves the 2 of them to finish the...

How smooth does the floor have to be for laying vinyls. I have noticed that a liquid screed is not good enough for them to lay over. I would think that maybe if there is anything sticking out it will pierce the lino but what about air bubbles etc are they a problem.
Used the monojet today with a weber screed. D 8 1-5 pump. The poor bloke on the machine reckoned it was empty in under a minute 35 lts is pretty quick. it did 4 ton in about 2 hours.
i used a rapid drying base screed and gonna top it off later
With a bit of homework you could figure out some...

Has anyone heard of this generation joddy mixer. It says it will mix multi finish and bonding. I know the old ones cant do this but nothing is mentioned on the website
I know some systems have a foam available for fixing the insulation boards but has anyone ever used Pink grip dry fix adhesive to fix their boards. The spec sheet says they can be used to fix insulation to masonary and if they can fix a plaster board to a brick or block wall they will defo fix...

What system would be 100% bombproof for application over rock face blocks. The problem is the rock face blocks are part of a massive retaining wall and they are slowly crumbling away. I suspect the water and frost is making them crumble. The owner has tried to repair it with cement last year...
When applying the base coat for systems like marmorit up210 i think that there is as much work getting the surface all i framed an flat as there is in doing a standard monocouche.
When you spray a topcoat on the base has to be almost perfect which is a bit of a false economy.
