Never used it,but assume it's ready mix. Buy half a dozen and then keep mixing up what you normally use, at home/ early on site. Keep outsides of buckets clean and put lids back on.

Looks like I'll be sticking with quicksand then . Had a couple of days making good and was easier to grab some ready mix so used it for coating up patches mainly which it was fine for .. Just thought it would be handy as there is no power on site and the genny is becoming unreliable . Oh well quicksand and a bumper bar it is then

I had heard what I thought were urban myths of folks paying 40+ a tub for this gear.

Thats a familiar story and I found it difficult to find a local independent merchant who stocked it up here. Its half decent gear, affordable, and unfortunately the way I saw it is that they appeared to be locked out by the GPDA, namely BG, Lafarge and Knauf.

Knauf will also acquisition USG Europe at the end of the year.
