    uk plaster needed

    when in trouble i always seem to turn to this forum !lol if post is in wrong section feel free to relocate it ,, :tongue: as a plasterer in the uk i didnt realise how good our products are!! until i move to oz and find that the oz equiverlent is a nightmare to use, its called hard finish plaster and you need to mix lime with it,, avoid it its a nightmare, i have just skimmed over yesterdays attempt with filler, :mad:iwhat would be a 2w hour mix is 2 days, my question is have any british plasterers come to oz and remained plastering uk style (plastering the whole room ) not just filling and sanding the joints, if so what product are they using??? i am tempted to import a pallet of british plaster and use it on my house, expensive yes but when weighed up against time and effort well worth it, also when i am allowed to start work for myself in oz qld would they be a demand from poms in oz:biggrin: for uk style plastering, hope that made sense,lol all imput welcome cheers chris

  3. Hi Everyone, I am looking at moving to Aus at the end of this year. I was hoping someone might have some advice on the differences in terminology regarding my trade. I am a Dry Liner in England, Qualified in Tacking, Sticking/Dat and Dab, Tape and jointing, Metal fixer. What is the equivelant in Australia to each of these components in Australia? I understand that the trade itself is called Fibrous plastering but the individual components like dot and dab etc i was hoping to find out the equivelant terminology. Thankfull for any insight Richard:confused:
