Had a few samples sent through today to try , will post up a review next week as I'm off this weekend, suppose to be the highest of tack hopefully this is the breakthrough in scrim tape the trade has been crying out for , for years, will be testing it for stickyness and ability not to friar

Ping a few staples in your scrim and it never comes down overnight but I hate it when it frays and peels off the edge.

To be honest most scrims I use these days stay up over night, often do it and never really come down. The fraying annoys me more then anything. Looks like good quality but not really ground breaking.

Always made me laugh when I got skrim that did not stick, I always had a vision of a load of factory workers making it and saying "but it doesn't stick?" And the owner saying "a f**k it". It was brought in about 1992/4 if my memory is correct and it's whole selling point was it sticks, for f**k sake you had one job. It's a case of taking short cuts at the most important bit and buying cheap glue to save pennies lol it is not a lot to ask for ffs

Here we go, adding another two years ffs I thought 25 would be enough so save the bullshit for when you've tried it ;)

So far, So good

How do you mean 'cut the edge' mate?
A picture would do a much better job explaining it. Do a couple cuts on each side and you won't have to worry about it anymore. You're just trying to cut the last string or 2 on the outside edge. Even if it starts to pull off it'll only go about 4 inches and stop.

Used this pink scrim today and it is good quality. Best one on the market is British gypsum extreme orange but about £7 a roll in tradepoint.

Anyone else notice that if you turn Vincey's ceiling photo on its side it looks like being on the wrong side of a glory hole and a customer is waiting....:whistle:
