Anybody got any experience of this. I have seen a previous post
recommending a wire brush but i have rather a lot to remove. I am
getting a fair bit off with a chisel SDS drill bit but it is not going
to get me close enough to give me a smooth surface to batten out. Is
there any solvent that would disolve it? Would a wallpaper stripper
work or is wetting the breeze blocks not a good idea? Many thanks.
I needed to install some kitchen cupboards in an extension which had
plasterboard stuck to a thermalite block wall. Because of the weight of the
cupboards I felt I had to batten the wall, so I had to cut a number of slots
approx 3ins wide by 3ft long in the plasterboard to get the battens fixed
flush to the thermalite and to the plasterboard..
Of course in places the lump of adhesive showed in the slots and it was an
absolute pig to remove. After many hours I came to the conclusion that the
easiest solution was to sacrifice some cheap wood chisels and virtually
carve the stuff away using a mallet.
Hope this helps
