Applied atlas thin coat 65 meters on Monday went back the job today Wednesday so it’s been on for over 48 hours and it’s still really wet. Will this s**t ever go off just worried if the dreaded rain comes back. Its high perspiration/humidity at the minute and there is a cold bite in the air. I have been paid like but if this tripe washes off i will have to re do it, mono all the way now with 1 litre of accelerator to 4 bags in the future

Wouldn’t worry..snowing next week

Ideally you should be using winter grade gear now like Unixil from jub or equivalent,colder months with raising humidity you’ll be struggling to see it go off for days on end..
Think most brands do a winter alternative

Doing a fairly big area in ecorend today, hopefully it'll dry fine, no rain forecast for good few days though

If you're happy to pay to put accelerator in mono, why the f**k didn't you just put the Atlas one (Eskimo) in their thincoat?

Was your base coat fully cured?

Will that accelerator work with other silicone brands mate just I've got one to finish thanks
No idea mate, we've only used Atlas. We did buy some accelerator from The EWI Store and they said it would work with any brand, but we've not used it yet.

The accelerator won’t work. The reason the jub and sto accelerator’s work is because there’s an additive in the texture that has a reaction with the accelerator. So if you’re adding any old accelerator into any texture that’s not got the additive in it, it won’t set.
You should Hang your heads in shame you’re making @Casper look like a professional, you bunch of toe rag scoundrels.

Did you primer the basecoat before texturing?

So I got a ecorend top coat on Thursday morning, today it was gone off rock hard, no accelerator. It was around 5 degrees in the day and bit frosty at night
