    I've just started using Seciltek Ecocork for internal plastering basecoat and I have to say it's realy weird stuff to work with. It went on abolutely fine but as soon as I tried to level it, all it would do is was pull. I tried a variety of tools from stainless steel to wood to plastic all to no avail.

    I decided it would be best not to apply it in a single 20mm coat as the instructions say I can but to go for 2 x 10mm because of this experience.

    What I'd like to know is if anyone has any advice on applying this stuff.

    Also, I know it's supposed to have a 4mm finish coat of Reabilita Cal Ac but my thoughts go to whether anyone has tried alternative internal finish coats with any success, or not.

    I had to use e-cork when baumit had no uk stock, it was applied to wood fibre boards so only around 6-12mm thick, plasterers liked it and the few small areas i’ve done were no problem, so maybe its the thickness thats the issue. As for the finish coat, i’ve used baumit klima glatt as i already had plenty of it. Only been up about 3 months but its dried out fine and no discernible difference to it going over baumit base coats.

    Ah yes, e-cork. I have used that too and it is nice to work with but a different product to the EcoCork - confusing I know :smile:

    Aah ok, god forbid that products would be instantly identifiable rather than named similarly.

    Yes, who'd have thought eah?

    As an update I actually went and trowelled down the surface yesterday afternoon. Good spray of water on surface and trowel and it was okay. This was 20 hours after application so next time I apply a small area for testing I'll try this after 8-10 hours instead and see if it works better.

    They seem to make a habit of it:

    REABILITA CAL CS
    REABILITA CAL AC
    REABILITA CAL AC FINO

    Almost as confusing as many of Pro Clima's product names. :devil:
