I agree with you Big K , that's how you're supposed to finish universal but multi hasn't got the density. It's not produced to be put on to thicknesses but if you're getting good results, let a thousand trowels reign!What’s recognised mean really?
I’m surprised at Chris’ choice of wording in that a sponge ‘is good for universal one coat’ as that is actually how you are meant to finish it.
In the same vein is how I use a sponge on skim, anywhere there is too much depth, sponging it softens up the top only to flatten nicely, so as to stop the depth of gear moving under the trowel, it’s the exact reason why you are told to sponge universal.

Even on two coat work the old boys used to either run a float down the internals and ceiling line, or scour the whole wall at times when using Sirapite.Hi Andy, sorry for the delay in replying, I'm not always on here. If we were teaching three coat work yes but our students don't need that level of knowledge.
Well I used to go to work without worrying how the finish was going to be, then if I put casual gear on I usually went to the pub, but if I put good gear on I went to the disco
Thanks, tbh I think you just hit the nail on the head thereTbh @Vincey back in the day it was lime, sand cement, carlite bonding carlite browning carlite finish and a good few more, but today's market is all about getting the job done quicker hardwall ,skimming on to msp, timber frame or dot dab, plaster board has taken over the market, and ultimately multi finish was born, as was thistle one coat and board finish etc, obviously traditional methods are still used but sad to say not as often
Try find plasterers that can do all thatThanks, tbh I think you just hit the nail on the head there
Very l7ittle, as new stuff has hard
When I first started Pete, we'd have two stacks of plaster in each house. Thistle Board Finish for, obviously, the boardwork and Sirapite for the S&C.
I did hit the 'agree button' there but the truth is that when Multi first came out, and for some time after, it was absolutely fine.Surly that's the problem with multi in that its can go over any background and there fore is produced for a non specific purpose unlike board finish or the old carlite finish for browning etc. High suction or low suction will always make multi react differently .
