    the variables involved in the finishing process render this topic/thread totaly meaningless. better off asking each taper to compare each compound on thier own work then ask which one goes the the longest. meters per pound sterling even better.

    meaningless it may seem to you but in general i was just asking has any one got the 135sqm that smart mix says you should get out of its buckets for top coat only, or the 50 sqm for full taping,,
