    Default Bathrooms / high humidity


    Hi guys,
    What does everyone else use to tape bathrooms and areas with high humidity. I have been using Lafarge aquamix but can't always get hold of it so was wondering if there are other ways.
    Cheers.

    I'm using Aquamix on Aquapanel at the moment and I don't like how it shrinks after a couple of days. Get it no problem from Encon or Minsters.

    Thanks for the replies. Talked to a guy a while ago who used scrim, easi fill and smart mix top coat, claimed to never have had a problem and quick but putting scrim in corners does not appeal much.

    i didnt realise/know you were supposed to use anything different? its always just the fast set bg and readymix pro. 2 coats fast set 1 finish, couple of coats of universal primer(expencive but worth it in the long run) . followed by couple of coats of softsheen or bathroom paint never had any problems? but regulations now make you fit an extractor of some sort?
