I tried this stuff today, seems really reliant on timings been spot on, not as forgiving as BG. It’s really thin to spread then goes through a glue like stage if you touch it during this stage it makes a real mess, second coat needs to go on as first coat has picked up quite a bit which seemed to take an hour !! In areas where it’s a bit thicker and hasn’t picked up as much the top coat drags the bottom coat and forms a chewing gum like mess. It’s hard to get the trowel lines out because it’s so thin and wet then boom some bits go off like concrete and some is a sticky gluey mess, add water and you can partially trowel the hard bits if you have arms like Popeye but then water on the not yet dry bits creates a sloppy mess. All in all I found it hard work and took 9 bags back
I had the same s**t absolute ball-breaker
 
I'd rather my wife pull my pants down and shove a 14 inch monster black cock up my arsenal than play around with that stuff,no thank you sir
with a name like kinkyboy im not sure if that means you dont like the plaster or just love a black cock up the arsenal.. haha
 
The poster is on about make good multi skim ,not British gypsum.
B and q now stock it
B and q near me has about 5-6 pallets of it, all different kinds too. As soon as BG comes in there are people waiting at 6am, this stuff they cant sell.

does anyone know if B and Q now only stock make good and have scrapped BG then?
 
Awesome plaster to use when you know how
Currently one of the best products on the market at the moment in my opinion

if you’re waiting 4 hours you’re doing it wrong.

easy to spread and much faster than board/multi

First mix caught me out slightly but soon realised it’s not BG so you only need 1/2 the effort

also I’m finding a bag only does 10m2... ??
Am I using the same white powder in an orange bag like everyone else???

Bollox,you a rep for make shite.i no for a fact your not a spread just by using the word awesome
 
Genuine

I’m no rep for them at all, I turned up on this Forum in 2013 giving a massive argument over using a sponge

I’m actually pleased this plaster is on the market, separates the proper plasterers from the DIY/college boys who can only spread a bit of board finish over level surfaces

Yep..thought so...rep..I agree on pics but if was using a new plaster and was praising its arse on here and thinking oooo la la this is going in lovely today il tell the lads tonight I would of got some pics.your a rep
 
On a serious note, if any of you are chewing with this it’s because you’ve watched the stupid video on it that I did

or read the bag wrong like I also did when I first used it

If you’ve only tried the new batch of stuff then ye it’s easy! If u tried the old batch it didn’t set on some backgrounds! Plasterboard it was ok but some overskims took 4 hours to dry! It’s not that people were doing it wrong, it’s that it wouldn’t go off!!
