    First time Ive heard of it and its difficult to find a link to a product spec.

    Did you know you can add a wee bit salt to set the gear up faster, or use sugar to prolong its workable time? Apparently an old hand told me this is what they used to do back in the olden days of taping in the 60's.

    I have allways thought about a product in a spray mist bottle that you could spray on a freshly

    filled joint or angle bead. Then trowel in to set the compound.

    It would save me washing up all the time when using easi 45
    Milk No Sugar.

    the salt thing definatly works never heard of sugar to keep it on, learn something new every day. Use to use "cream of tartar" to keep the old BG red filler on.
