    I've used it several times. The substrate needs to be straight and plum for best results. There is no resistance if you try to tamp it with your straight edges, the foam just flattens. The foam also keeps expanding for 15 mins or so, so witch your joints or they won't be flush. It sticks like shit to a blanket. Ok for the odd wall or remedial job.

    Its not bad for very small jobs when youre not able mix up any board adhesive easily. You have to be fast and Tony made a good point about keeping an eye on it after you have dabbed the sheet as I have seen a few window reveals that resembled big smiles instead of being level.

    I used Ping Grip Dry fix For all the walls and main ceilings in this barn conversion http://www.gwbgbuilders.co.uk/barn_conversion.html It worked a treat. You have to leave it for 3 to 4 minutes for it to attain it's grab qualities. The skin that forms breaks when it is pressed to the sub-strata.
