    hi all

    I've got a small-ish (less than 1m sq) piece of PB to bond to an internal wall (rough plaster finish)

    Haven't got any PB adhesive but have got bonding plaster or easifill in my garage

    Just wondering if either of these would do the job instead of buying the correct product - thanks

    Insta Stick expanding foam can be used to stick plasterboard sheets, there is a thread on this somewhere.

    For that size, just gripfill or silicone it on. As Jit says foam would be best but gripfill or silicone is two quid compared to eight quid. As long as you don't have to set the plasterboard flush with existing levels any of these would be fine.

    Bonding plaster will stick it!

    Use it myself sometimes if out of board adhesive. Or foam, Stixall...chewing gum :)

    Cheers for all above ideas and suggestions - a good range of options indeed

    Usually happy to buy correct materials but for this job will use bonding plaster I recon :)

    Soudal's PU adhesive foam (the pink stuff) is very good - will happily stick plasterboard to pretty much anything!
