Chris this is the same stuff and how its used, it goes off in 20 mins or less, 2 coats and at least 2 trowel up's to acheive a smooth? flat finish


I must admit a good spread (plasterer) is good to watch, and will leave a good finish, but it takes a long time to become good at it, and then you can earn money.
Unfortunately a lot of people think it's a peice of cake to do, and I've run my hand over their walls, and it's like the surface of the moon
Have a go on a small job

That guy has a good feel for the hawk and trowel in that video. He is pretty good at it. Do you know that guy Brian?

Here's a house built recently at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia with the drywall Contractor Sweeney Plastering. We heard it was an excellent showcase of Trim-Tex usage so we sent a photographer there to take some snaps before the job was sanded. There was around 2100m2 (22,600sq ft) of board in the job and pretty well each room had at least 1 curved wall. Trim-Tex was used exclusively and predominantly in 3/4" Bullnose in Corners, Archway, Splayed, Bull Adapters but also Square Corner Bead, Adjustable Internals, 1/4" & 3/8" Tear Away Shadow and Tear Away L Beads adding up to 2800m or 9200ft of trims. It took a team of 7 contractors a week to install just the beads on one of the 2 levels. Pity it wasn't a sunny day for the photo's!
