Surely if bg have had so many complaints they would discontinue multi and make pure cheaper and readily available? Or am I being too presumptuous

We've had two and a bit packs of board on this job and the board has been good. I do however tell them that I won't take any of that gummy pink filled shite.

that was the time before.... one or 2 bags is not enough to help solve a problem

if people sent off the right details then BG may be able to see that it is only plaster coming from a certain mine.... or if it is effecting another mine.... a few bags is not a big enough sample :D

Oh I agree with you totally but with the amount of bags that get used every day if 10 people complain it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack... also it is not always the plasters fault....

some "plasterers" blame their tools and materials to justify to themselves..... (not saying anybody here does that though)

One prob there is if it's a domestic and you got five bags and your busy you don't want to waste time taking a bag back to merchant

THis has been my theory for a long time... if you buy where lots of plasterers buy then problems seems to be few and far...

I spoke to them way back and was supposed to be having a meeting. Despite me arranging a place for the meeting (my local Jewsons) and saying that I could make any time or date the meeting never happened. They're a useless, dishonest shower of shite.
Yes you @BritishGypsum, a f**k**g disgrace.

Danny you're talking absolute bollocks.
Years ago I used gear that had been stored on pallets on flooded building sites, freezing cold houses etc., guess what, no problems. They f**k**g know what's been going on with Multifinish for years now.
IMO many guys have either never used truly decent gear or have just forgotten how easy skimming used to be.
