You’ll get a finish you never done before, that’s why. Go to the private section and you’ll get the kick you after , not here so fancy poncy one coat wizz to play billy big balls gets the info he is after.
Even if it works out for you with sponging etc you will want to see it painted to make sure it matches the finish you have been getting for years.

True. Won’t be hard to top tho

Little bedroom today should have been straight forward. The gears been fine for a bit then BANG, it’s shite again.

I thought I’d take the time to take a few pictures, to show the doubters just how s**t the gear (multi) can be.

This was laid down with a fresh mix too.

So put it on, fine, lay down with fresh gear, fine.

Go to flatten. Oh here we go. It’s pulling, ripping, tearing, streaky bacon the lot.

Some areas gone off, and next to it piss wet:

The 2.5 hour gauge turns into 4 when it like this, plus alot of anger.

So there you go. Think yourself lucky if it hasn’t happened to you. It’s not user error its s**t product.

@BritishGypsum what do you reckon? I’ve got half a bag of this horse s**t in van if you want to test it and tell me there’s nothing wrong with it

And before you say it essexandy rich richyrichy no i didn’t leave it like that. View attachment 29848 View attachment 29849 View attachment 29850 View attachment 29851 View attachment 29852

We should start up a post telling each other what happened to plaster that you used that day only if has gone off . . say date, what type of background board etc PVA or grit etc used by date what happened first coat etc no other comments like rubbish stuff and nobody else comment on page just the basic along with the British gypsum @ so they can see we are not letting it go

Thanks for the suggestion @djfleming. This could actually work quite well. If the product is not performing as it should, we need as much information as possible in order to investigate and try to resolve it. If you wish to post photos including the side of the bag with the batch details, also details of the conditions, background and pre-treatment plus your contact number and location we will be able to use this information. Alternatively you can email this information to thistleplaster@saint-gobain.com

Used the new board finish on a bungalow throughout past weeks on board.. and it's safe to say it's unpredictable, it's almost too fine at times.. flattened first coat then fresh mix and the top coat shrunk in places almost like the first coat grinded through really pissed me off because I've never had a problem like that and it was only one set had to give a few extra trowels too get it right..

Hi Burt, we would like to help to resolve the problems you're having.

The worst part is the bellends on here who think cause they not had a problem that the gears always great. Have the proof of that now. I knew it was the gear but still doubted myself

Did they offer you anything for free since you bought a bag and it’s not fit for purpose

I put up post the other day about gear setting far too quick.
24 boards I had on.
Knew it was f**k*d when pulling it out the bin.
Just kept on top of it.
Never turned black..
started to dry straight out as if in a heatwave.

Actually preferred it to 3 hour sets.

I do love you @britishgypo.....
You keep me on my toes and it broke my day up into something different (y)(y)
