    Hi every one , can you tell me in what order to you tape.

    Corner first , then long flats, then butt joints.

    Or is there a different order ?

    Cheers

    Same ordering as Tony so that no loose ends are showing and each step overlaps the last, then lather rinse and repeat, then sand.

    fibre tape on all but the internals


    Today I put on all the scrim tape then mixed Two huge buckets of filler by hand coz I forgot my drill then I 8" boxed all the flats it took me just over an Hour to do the whole house, had just enough gear left to spot the nails after I washed out the pump and 8" box. Way to go

    Dillon, so you use fibre tape even on the butt joints, i always thought that you had to use paper tape and mud on every thing, so i had been told.
    Thanks for the info i now know how i can speed things up, and get spraying even faster.

    Would you recommend a 8" flat box for first coating , that's all i have to do before i start spraying.

    Yep I did a lot of pre sprey work at one time, we used to use the Knauf airtech gear through the 8" box on top of scrim and filler for the angles. Sometimes your costomer will dictate weather you have to use paper tape or not, if you have the choice use scrim on all flats and paper for internals.

    What is the shrinkage like with the flat box, as we only have to cover the scrim, on butt joints and fill the recess out on the flats , then 2 coats of Knauf airless spray plaster, then a rub down.
    We are still in the early stage of this , so trying to get a good system going.The moor we can save on taping the moor we can spray

    Yes it shrinks that why we three coat and why you put two coats of airless on top, but if you want a real pucker job then do two coats tape and joint then your usual two airless, this will give you the best results but cost time. Like I said i have done a fair bit of sprey plastering and its my opinion that its a lot of bloody hard work for a not much better finnish. And far too muck sanding for any body's liking.

    Flats, beads, then internals for me!
    Fast set flats and beads, 10" flats, 2nd coat beads then stisk internals.
    12" flats, 3rd coat beads, then finish internals
    Dont bother washing tools, just fling them in a bucket in the van and go!
