Isn't it just Sheetrock, as they took over the UK side of the company? If so, you can sand that by just looking at it.

As said previously, sands very easy. Don't go near the internal angles with a new disc though! You'll be right thru to the paper:)

Ask Marcus,
As I know Knauf took over sheetrock Europe, But the buckets I still get have sheetrock on them with a little Knauf stamp on the side!
If it's just Knauf on the buckets it could easy be their own stuff which I did like! They had blue lids I think!

No mention of sheetrock on these buckets just says Joint cement light.

Yea light joint cement was good stuff but expensive!
Never really trusted it for putting tapes on but I have never heard of anything going wrong that I've done!
Great to box with and float out beads etc.
And sanding was good as u can go a bit lower on the grit and it doesn't scratch!!!!:D

Funny you should say that I have just tried the Freemans and yes its great boxed on great and internals too, havnt sanded it yet but don't see a problem with that either. Trouble is as a house basher working for a pittance I just cant afford to use it and nor do the people I work for deserve quality gear for the rates they are paying. So sorry Marcus it will have to used for private work where I can factor it into the price.

£7.50 a box which works out at the same volume as a bucket!
If u can buy any buckets of readymix for that price please tell me where and what kind is it?:confused:

I didn't say any thing about cheaper ready mix I said what I was using is cheaper.

For your information I use wondertex (yeh yeh I know but we are talking cost not quality) 2 bags of Wondertex gets me 3 full buckets when mixed and cost £24 ish. One box of freemans is about half a bucket so would need 6 boxes for the same 3 buckets so cost £45.


On the prices Im working for its a no brainer.

A box of freemans will fill a bucket of sheetrock/gyproc no probs!!
Not sure where the half bucket comes from?:confused:
Maybe u got some small boxes LOL?

Errrrm maybe I have big buckets, it does not change any thing I still get 3 buckets out of 2 bags and the Freemans only filled half a bucket.

Yes I use wondertex ultralight filler and love it except it doesn't set very quick which is Ok for the most part coz I work alone and have been doing some big houses, I also Box it on. If I am doing smaller houses I switch to GTECH filles cos it goes off quicker.
