What is the difference between the brush version and the liquid one?
The liquid version has no fibres it can be applied in a single coat on less porous and smoother substrates and two coats for more porous and rougher surfaces unlike the brush version two coats can be applied quickly around 10 minutes between coats. With the fibre reinforced version applying a second cost before the first is dry could lead to damage caused by the brush creating gaps or breaks in the original seal.
Can I spray apply myself or do I need a professional?
We would prefer you use a professional applicator, however the actual spraying technique is quick to learn and the equipment relatively easy to hire, if you understand the principles of airtightness and can handle a sprayer then you will probably do a good job.
Is it only available in blue/black?
No there is a white version specifically used where the topcoat will be plaster, otherwise the default is blue/black.
How much can be applied in a day?
Using the sprayer around 300 linear metres a day.
What can you put over the applied product?
Pretty much anything from paint to plaster, render or dry lining.
