yeah it would be a bit pricey theres a ex pommy over here in sydney i think making a skim even called it multi finish but it goes off quick i did a wall up in darwin it was 5 m2 and was troweled up and set in 45mins by the time i got the first coat on it was ready to top.finishes the same but its hard work.

Can you not slow the set down with additives

Read a thread awhile ago on here, apparently someone was using a spanish skim plaster called placo finish out there.

Your always goint to be up against it with the heat, Placo finish is alright but in Spain nowadays they seem to be only using one coat machined or hand, put it on a bit thick it gives you the time.

have a look at this - Knauf MP75 Projection Plaster - Knauf Drywall

where are you based? maybe we can sort out someone to contact you..... even if your in Aus

Scissors that film is the biggest pile of crap ever. I'm not for one minute saying that MP75 isn't faster than F&S but by choosing the slowest messiest plasterers that could be found doesn't make MP75 look good but makes any decent spread watching that vid think that you're trying to pull the wool over their eyes. Also there is no way that the finish is anywhere near a good as can be achieved with F&S.

Your probably right - Plasters are not really my thing.....

There are applications for MP75 - as well as all the other plasters out there....

Is it not all about giving the finish required for the job, at the price that is right?

No argument there mate, just that a more "honest" vid could have made the product more interesting to spreads.

I stand corrected. To be fair Gary I've only seen it done by Stu and Paul and even Stu said it wasn't as good a F&S or suitable for domestic housing, so I just took his word for it.
I still think that vids crap. It might have been a bit more realistic if say, you and your mate were on the other end of the wall or perhaps even someone spraying the Hardwall on.

lots of lads was saying same about plastering machines.....Knauf Drywall MP75 Projection Plaster Race - YouTube

if you like skim ok,
I prefer different material, to learn do skim at hight standard it take much longer comparing with sheetrock. I was working with both and prefer sheetrock.
coming back next day to sand is not cost effective if you can keep every one busy..

usually all machines will make a profit if it will be used by right person

the finish is a bit grittier unless you want to trowel it to death. but if its flat with no holes then its all the same. iv used it on a bit of domestic as well as a fair bit of commercial and once painted ud never know what plaster was used.

we are located on queensland and import USG diamond veneer finish, it is the most user friendly skim for australian conditions. can use over board, render and concrete, dries stark white. we have tried them all and this certainly rates well. drop us a line if you need any. we also import weber monocouche and are starting to use lot it now.
 
when i was working Germany in the nineties we used maxit inside it was like mp 75 but it seemed to have alot of sand in it but i prefered mp 75 as it was easier to rule.Then we did a job on an architect house , he wanted us to use knauf goldband told us it was better gear and it was lovely stuff , dead creamy , better than any BG finish, the only bad thing was you had to throw it on by hand because it had a setting time of 1 and half hours and they had Knauf Rotband that set even quicker
