Hi Guys

I have just been made aware of this event happening during May 2012.Readymix Plasters Roadshow 2012 - Knauf Drywall

I don't have any more details that what is on this link (at the moment). They will only be demo'ing the Airless product, but the guys attending will happily discuss other Knauf Drywall Plasters on the day.

If you want to attend, either contact the local merchant to confirm your attendance, or let me know so that I can pass the details on. (either PM me or log below, your details and where you will be going)

These events are NOT training days, but product demos!

If you have a specific interest in any of the Knauf Spray Plasters, let me know and I will get the specialist to get in touch and you can discuss them further.
If the interest and potential is good enough, product specific demos can be arranged......
Either let me know or contact Knauf Drywall and ask for the Spray Plaster BDM.

What products are you 2 really interested in?

Its called airless because its designed to goes through an airless spraying unit. It makes no difference if you do it by hand or airless or ritmo. The airless is a single unit that sprays at about 200 bar which gives it enough pressure to spray on the wall.
The ritmo can still be used to spray it on if need be. The attachment on the machine in the video is a pressure guage with cut off switch. The gun was similar to an airless gun. When you open the trigger material is forced through a tiny opening and air assists the projection. When u close the trigger the pressure builds up and sends a signal to turn the machine off.
They have other ready mixed plasters at knauf that require a worm pump the only difference i noticed when using on is the airless is much wetter.
The artist foraly known as wizard is correct in saying its a long old process on board but its more aimed at low skilled workers doing the work cheaply because it can always be sanded correct
