it was for a floor that i need to key first. I was told to roll a liquid dpm then scatter silica on it. Plus i also wanted to experiment with some of it. Can you get 2mm quartz grit or similar

Speak to dan 07738635672 at longrake spar they sell 1.7-2mm quartz sand if its used for a key then contact your local glass recycling depot and ask for glass frit for fibreglass its better for key

What's glass frit? Is it that crushed glass what looks like a sharp/grit sand? Pavers use it round here.

That mix, do you trowel it on or brush it on and is it wet on wet or a scratch coat?
