Totally agree - only do one wall in a room - £60 ish - so my labour is xxx plus £60 - I think customer don't mind to pay.


you only get five square metres a bag, ryan. so after the bag's ripped and fallen to pieces you may be left with enough to do three square metres. a very small wall. can't you get your interprator to labour for you ... :RpS_unsure: then you could pocket the labourer's wage as well :RpS_thumbup:
@BritishGypsum are arseholes. another great decision by their crack marketing team. the same team that never show their face on here or address the sh1te bag problem. they will never create a demand big enough for independents to stock it at sixty plus a bag. sell it at cost you dicks. create the demand and publicity and make it a ubiquitous product that everyone wants.

Having read the Magnetic data sheet I think if you are going on render coats i would set the wall in multi first one coat . Dont close it in. When set do the two layer Magnetic ie 2mm first coat and 1mm laying in. that way you will get the 5 metres a bag. I will check this method with BG technical to get a green light.Looks to me as well that mixing has to be fairly exact ie water and quantity as you would not want any left on the spotboard

Hmmmmmm sounds a stupid way of doing things and more costly, if your backing coat is correct you would go straight over it saving yourself so much time. Skimming it then Waiting for it to set then rebonding the wall, then skim with magnetic plaster is gonna cost you more than a handboard of gear your gonna save, it's not gold plaster we are talking about but maybe that's next. The method your gonna check is called re-skim I'm sure it will work so I personally will give you the green light :)

Its supply and demand... why have warehouses full of stock when there is not the demand for it....

Your not likely to be skimming whole rooms with it... I should think (speculating) that one bag would do the area required by the client... £55 a bag... if thats what it costs then that is what it costs... Who cares? CHarge it back to the client.. if they want it they will pay for it...

Its very much a specialist material and very much like all the venetian stuff which is also not stocked by big players...

Danny you can purchase the expensive Venetian plaster in as little amount as you like!
I never had this problem with Durafinish as my stockists could get 5 bags for me to trial.
If I want one tub of gyprime at £80 no problem either so I can't see why we can't order say 2 or3 bags of the magnetic and take a hit on the delivery cost.:RpS_confused:

so 60 then the pluss's brings it to 78 quid for a bag fuc king aida then theres the labour costs aswell ontop of the fact that 5m2 is not goin to cover many of the worlds walls so your either goin to have to mark out an area on a wall thats to be done in mag plaster and finish the rest of the wall in normal multi orrr buy more bags at 78 quid a pop and then one wall costs..............well bloody loads

as long as they are happy to wait the almost certainly extensive lead times for the material

Just asked in the machine section if magnetic plaster can be sprayed!
Might as well buy a machine if I'm gonna be splashing out on expensive plaster :)

Simple - treat mag like polished plaster / dura finish / etc. I think I have faith in mag plaster as I have some clients (mates of mine) who is happy to wait after I have tried one on my kitchen wall then they come over to mine to test it. I think it would be good idea that I get piece of plasterboard , put skim stop beads around it, then plaster mag , paint and some magnets and bring with me to show to customers to sell this product.

Would this service apply with Anne Summers products too maybe?!:)

Spoke to my technical rep I have on the inside at Travis they won't be stocking it at the moment, my contact I have in the Ccf boardroom says they haven't stocked it yet and it's a pallet of 24 and it comes in at £67 plus VAT so around £80 so a niche product, which I think is a good thing :) oh and I've got some to try out off one of my contacts at BG :)
