Worth looking at old threads from years ago, lots of info and a nice change if you don't fancy joining in the current format for a bit.

@Gibbo is right its hardwall its called hardcoat in Ireland because a lot of older plasterers call skim hardwall.

Gyproc hardcoat is a base coat for skim and I have never used it. the client at the house where I am working wants me to use it as it is less likely to crack and quicker drying than sand and cement and I Was just wondering has anyone had any experience with it. gypsum are coming on site next week to give a demo but of course they will say its the best thing ever.

I used a small bit in the gyproc plant. Its nice to put on. Its called hardwall in the UK. Do a search on here about hardwall

We did one sample wall I found it kinda sticky hard to control but the rep said not to try to level it with trowel just throw it on .I gave it quick screed and he said leave it half an hour and I screeded it again then about an hour later devil floated it. I was not too gone on it I'd say it would take a bit of getting used to
