Re: Plaster repair


Never heard of it. Durabond and fibafuse is all you need for repairing plaster

Re: Plaster repair

Re: Plaster repair


Big Wally's is for re-attatching loose plaster, not patching.

Yes, that is correct. It does work. Walls are as solid as new. For finishing I use durabond 90 and fibafuse. Anyone use/find the new 6" fibafuse rolls yet? Do you guys ever use plaster weld (pink stuff) before using durabond and fibafuse on plaster.

Thank you for all your input.

No need for plaster weld when using durabond. You can add a bit of glue in the mix if you are worried about adhesion though. And haven't seen any 6" fibafuse rolls yet though. I use the 36" wide rolls. Fibafuse can fix just about anything

What type of glue? I use straitflex super bond glue with all bed coats of USG green top. Never used it with Durabond. They do have 6" rolls but I have not found them yet. I guess buy a 36" roll and cut it on the chop box?

Re: Plaster repair


You can add Elmer's glue, standard carpenters glue, or pva glue.
