Plaster sticks to plasterboard, and you think it'll fall off of cured s&c if it's not keyed?
Listen chunk,ive been back to plenty of old properties with sand and cement as backing coat,did a bedroom not long ago with exact same situation.there was a 1m2 square section that skim had blown off as there was misses all over the area from the key I wish I would of took a pic now.dont think you know everything big boy believe you me a continuous key everywhere is better so take it on board

No I went all modern and use 25mm drywall screws barely through the float. Not that I ever get to float with s&c anymore unfortunately.

Good afternoon chaps I’ve just sand cemented a couple walls which had issues with damp , the customer put KA tanking slurry on a while ago , I scratch coated it yesterday & put top coat on today & rubbed it up . My question is what finish coat to put on it . A friend I know who’s an old school plastered very good to be fare said to me British gypsum guide lines recommend to leave it 28 days before applying finish coat . My mate prefers Thistle board finish over multi as it tends to shale if it doesn’t dry out completely . I was going back Monday to skim it . Any advice I’d be grateful. Thx in advance.

If a backing coat is just flattened off with no mechanical key , the finish wil fail eventually
A wall with as much mechanical keys as poss is far better than one with misses everywhere! A continuous figure 8 should be applied,I'm not saying a deep key but a run over everywhere.comparing plasterboard and sand and cement..f**k me this place its full of cowboys..yeeeee harrrr
