Put it on as late as you can in the afternoon and finish at first light.

Cold this Monday night but then warming up to 12c later in the week. If later in the week then on by 9am with lots of Wickes in it.

No it is an accelerator.

Think they sell it as a frost proofer and hardener. Make sure it is Wickes own.

Do you get any colour variation with wickes? I used some in some chalk and it looked a bit off white. Mite just be cos it got scraped too early tho but it was a chimney and the scaff was s**t.

One goes off quicker and one needs base coating every f**k**g thing lol

Ok....... it looked darker then another panel we did without wickes in. But we also did that in warmer weather and it was harder when we scraped it
