    their corner tape used to be good but of late I have noticed the paper has got thinner and comes unstuck from the metal strips and the metal is a different thickness. Used to use this all the time but is just the same as the cheap stuff now. Now I only use B.G. easyfill and promix lite.

    Thought I'd better pitch in here and say my piece! It's on it's way ( i promise beermonster!) had some real issues with loading and shipping but lessons learnt ! - As beermosnter says it top notch compound - it comes shipped in outer cardboard box with plastic liner inside, it's not a new concept more the fact that we have always been dictated to by the big 3 over here in good old blighty! and only been served with old school powder or over priced ready mixed in buckets.

    Couple of methods to prep for use - if using for boxing best method is to crack open cardboard top and fold plastic over edges of box then simply empty into container (bucket) it usually comes ot in a rather strange looking cube of compound! then simply add desired water to thin for either taping or boxing.

    If used as an all purpose filler for skimming or making good can be used straight from the box by simply opening and maybe giving a quick wizz with a mixer - if need be pump can slide over side of box and boxes filled this way.

    It will be FREE !!! well sort of - for those that have yet to try a sample (apologies we ran out of initial testing pallets so quickly) please bear with me and we have allocated some of the incoming stock as samples for anyone who wishes to try before they buy!

    So why are we offering yet another ready mixed product to the uk? Frankly were fed up with being squeezed constantly on price from some of the big merchants who neither understand the product they are selling nor offer any kind of after care or associated products (ie tapes, beads, tools) So price is key and of course quality will be just as important, product is 'nice to use' with good flow rate low shrinkage and of course easy to sand but with out loosing bond or strength.

    We hope by striving to offer our valued customers cheaper but still good quality products we can help you put more money in your back pocket! If we can succeed in that then our work here is complete, and feel we have given something back to all our valued customers for your support over the years making Belmore the success it is today.

    As soon as stock is in hand we will repost with some pallet deals and shipping rates and will post details on how to get hold of a sample - full pallet is 64 boxes.

    Is that Freeman Products from the US? If it is, it is here in Oklahoma close to where I am. I have been going to their factory and using their stuff for quite awhile and they do make good lightweight and topping.
