Hi guys, hoping for some help.
I have had a pretty huge open plan area (50m2) plastered, half of it
just skimmed, half scratch coated and plastered. Whilst putting the
2nd coat on the 1st (mist coat) is coming off on the roller.
- I let it dry out for approx 4 weeks and had an industrial
dehumidifier in there for a week.
- When the plaster turned a nice light pink throughout, watered down
some Wickes "trade" contract emulsion by 20-30% and gave it a miscoat.
- Let that dry for a few days, lightly sanded, then applied a 10%
diluted coat of the same stuff.
However, on some walls the 1st coat is coming off in flakes and making
a real mess of the wall. Any ideas what the common cause for this is
please? Thought I had followed best practice!!!!
Thanks in advance
