    Blue grit, pre grit, cemetone plasprime.....

    I use a mix of SBR & PVA, ive never understood the benefit of pregrit especially when the grit makes you have to coat heavier

    How would you advise on this render

    More than likely, they do most of the spraying round here

    How would you advise on this render

    That's what I was thinking Dan, the owner is concerned about moisture ingress. I think it's more of an aesthetic fault

    Ever heard of this plaster?

    I thought that would be the case bud , I put a small wall on in my garage to see how it behaves. Just sits there, so can see why it would need suction.

    Anyone use this PVA?

    Depending on background wether I 1or 2 coat. Even if I one coat I'll go over again but just with roller to make sure no misses

    Anyone use this PVA?

    I find I get better coverage with it, hard to describe but it seems to have more body to it. When coating higher suction walls it seems to resist the suction. Also find skimming over it goes in lovely. Did a big ceiling today , very old bare boards that normally pull in too quick, especially...

    Anyone use this PVA?

    I think Screwfix do cementone SBR for about £20 Online much cheaper..
  25. Olican

    Anyone use this PVA?

    Full bottle of pva .. Half a bottle of SBR.. As the SBR is thinner than pva doesn't take too much water, I just quarter fill the empty pva bottle good shake , that's enough. Seems to go long way (y)

    Anyone use this PVA?

    Prestige building supplies, have to buy with a bulk order

    Anyone use this PVA?

    I've been using a mix of Everbuild pva and SBR for a while now. Skims lovely . Think I pay about £6 for pva and £8 for SBR
