    Yes, I saw a wall 'sucked out' of a stone barn, as the wind caused negative pressure on the corner of a gable-end.
    :shocked:

    Sounds like the stone got sucked off the structural paint!

    7.19 a can is an insane price.. Platinumsupplies on eBay sell them at £3 a can for branded Soudal (the manufacturer who produces no-nonsense branded foams)
  1.  
    But is soudal dedicated to insulation etc?
  2.  
    ''Dow Instastik went on fine, boards went up a breeze, should have leveled the one wall prior as slightly out but better than it was originally! Will be interesting to see how my taping and jointing pans out... ;-s

    DO NOT get this stuff on your beard!!''

    Just don't try to get it out while un-cured. It'll scrape out when cured. (I had a can go 'bang' on me!!)
  3.  
    Any up to date 'best value' recommendations?

    I bought 12x Soudal "Fix All Fills and Bonds" at the end of August for £68 including VAT and delivery from a popular online auction site.
  4.  
    Does anyone know if the everbuild fix and fill is suitable for fixing insulated PB to brick?

    From google search

    "Fix & Fill Expanding Foam is a quick-setting polyurethane-based foam which expands greatly on application and yields up to 150% its original volume. Quick-setting – can be cut, sawn or plastered in 1 hour. Fills irregular and broad gaps where most conventional fillers would fail. Expands up to 150% its original volume."
    So definitely not!
  5.  
    I thought they just needed to be polyurethane based to be fixing?

    I found illbruck PU010 panel adhesive the best of all I have tried. As with all these foam adhesive you need to be putting a constant amount from board to board and time standing should be same for each board before offering to the wal,l other wise you will get a step between boards. I think the regs require a mechanical fixing as well think it is 2 per board but check the British Gypsum detail with respect to fitting these boards.

    I used this about a month ago to stick 8 x 4 sheets of 2" Celotex to a very uneven old stone internal wall. After 24 hours it was solidly bonded, no chance of even pulling it off the wall - probably would have simply taken chunks out of the Celotex if we had tried!

    Forgot to add that it can be used with a professional foam gun which will give much more control of the application rate.
