    Default 8 Hr compound

    Sounds like it could be a good product. I have a few questions maybe you could answer for me.
    Can you 7" with normal BG joint filler then 10" with this 8hr setting compound , or will it only adhere to its self ?.
    Once the 8hr compound has set, your saying you can then apply your 12" finish coat with out any problems. There will be no air holes the way you get when you try to 12" box over 10" box without it being completely dry .

    What about the price , size of bags and coverage?

    Allways interested in any new product BG bring out ! Rather have a few free sacks though instead of the T shirt: Hint Hint

    I think it's time BG upped their game as they no longer have the Monopoly hold on the dry wall industry they once had.

    you cant beat bg for there gear!!

    Yes you can. Within its 8hr working time it applies and feels like a finish (if mixed to the required consistency) so it will act the same.

    Once the 8hr compound has set, your saying you can then apply your 12" finish coat with out any problems. There will be no air holes the way you get when you try to 12" box over 10" box without it being completely dry.
    You are going to have a SET surface to 12" onto, which will be hard to the touch, unlike 10" with softer air drying products.

    What about the price , size of bags and coverage?
    We have a guideline list price for distributers, but what you will be able to buy it at will vary shop to shop. Maybe amestaper can fill you in after he visits Crown ProSet Launch Day on Thurday 4th, but like I say the price will vary.

    The bag size is 17.5kg, kilo for kilo it goes alot further than the usual fillers/finishes. We have been cautious at estimating 30% further.

    Thanks for the info Marc

    I will wait and see if there is any feed back after the launch, maybe some of the forum members might have some thoughts on it.

    I can only see this benefitting you if you have a run of work. you still can't sand it until it is properly dry, and when you put fresh coats on damp jointing it takes longer to dry anyway.

    We have contractors using it through the bazooka yes, and to be honest it is then you probably get the biggest benefit. But it takes extra cleaning, ie taking the plate off the top of the bazooka and hosing it. Internals are probably the longest drying part of taping in wintertime (and flat tapes if you paper them)

    Just to get my head round this stuff-how does it compare with with promix lite in regards sanding and finish? I've got a bag in the van that I've not used yet, a freebie of course!

    I have used this on a couple of jobs,and it does what it says on the tin,makes a change knowing that a house you have just 10" will be dry enough to 12". Easy to sand as well,need to give everything a proper clean though. we still use it more as a first coat at the moment now that its a fine Scottish summer. will use it more in the winter months.
