    Carlite ultra finish

    I can remember using carlite finish over twenty years ago . It dried pink like multi . We used it over larges areas of hard wall because it took ages to set

    High suction walls

    Great tip . I’ve recently stated buying unibond or evostick. Can’t believe the difference well worth the extra cost . Tried explaining it to my mate but he can’t get his head around it . Cheap pva is false economy

    High suction walls

    Blue grit doesn’t kill suction . Just provides a key for smooth surfaces . Try some sbr in your pva . Works a treat .

    Do you bed mesh in with the rendaid and then go over with stipple roller . Just thinking it’s got to be a fail proof method on all backgrounds surely

    I bar on weber ocr

    I though you were supposed to do two passes . Especially if no scratch coat . I used ocr before in one pass and when it dried you could see every block

    Multi Skim Finish by Make Good

    Ok so I used the quick set bonding today . It’s also white and similar to knauf MP one coat . I’d even go as far to say it’s the same stuff. So i believe that all the aggregate is basically the ash Bi product from power station chimneys ? And none of their products contains gypsum. So their gear...

    Is this the answer?

    Yes it did it . Found it was better to get it flat and go over the next day

    Is this the answer?

    I used the knauf in the early 2000s . Strange gear. Looked ok when painted but found it hard to judge when in needed a trowel

    Live Q&A with British Gypsum, Friday 1 May

    I was on the chat last night as I’m in the scheme . Not much to talk about really just that they are allocating supplies to all merchants in a fair and even manner .They are also going to send out half a pallet of finish direct to members homes

    What’s sort of price is it ?

    Is this the answer?

    B&q is the only big boy who’s gonna stock it . All the other merchants are small independent ones . Are we the only trade that has to rely on one manufacturer of product ?
  32. megamix

    Is this the answer?

    It dries white . I imagine it’s similar to the old style knauf finish .

    Guidlines

    Might get some hate for this but I’ve been working in a few folks house lately. I’ve probably rubbed more shoulders with folks in the Asda queue and been more at risk . I get the customer to open the door for me and politely ask them to stay in another room . I take my own kettle.

    Live Q&A with British Gypsum, Friday 1 May

    It’s because they are closing coal fired power stations . The ash that is produced is what they use in the knauf and sinait boards . They are white inside and cut nicer . They BG boards are basically made from finish .

    Wickes.

    i ordered at 8am and got the confirmation. I ordered 9.5 but wanted 12.5 . So I rang the store and said can you swap them . She said no . Even though they had them in stock . Apparently if the website says you can’t have them it’s tough s**t

    Wickes.

    Probably same reason why wickes would sell me a 9.5mm 8x4 but not a 12.5mm 8x4 . Even though both were in stock . I had a argument with manger over the phone . Didn’t make any sense
