    I intend to use the wickes onecoat on a wall where i have removed some old tiles and they have some really hard to remove adhesive. so to smooth off ready for new set of tiles going to use onecoat and tile directly on to it after a few days when dry.

    dont want tbond/brown then skim . not enough time and more work. been told and read wickes onecoat is good stuff,

    1. is onecoat going to be ok for this application?
    2. should I pva before tiling?

    Who’s this camel-toe, what’s his name?
    Is it Clinty – ah the shame.
    Or maybe ‘tis Mikey - now there was a twit,
    Completely lacking any semblance of poetic phrasing, and wit.

    What’s his contribution to this forum?
    An annoying dork – he’s at the fore. Um.
    He hides his ident - he keeps his head down,
    (any further it t’would be brown.)

    His feelings for Looch he canna hide.
    Her very name makes him burn inside.
    He hides his love behind gross tirade
    While he wishes to have her laid.

    There’s no chance that that will occur,
    For camel-toe’s a she – a real ‘her’.
    His usernames it is no speller,
    Ever since his braces got caught in a propeller.

    Can't remember were I have seen or read this, but almost certain you can't tile over onecoat plaster. Ring up the addy manufactures and makes sure your safe to tile otherwise they will start dropping of.

    One-coat is too soft for tiling, it just pulls off with the weight of tiles.

    proper way would be to use Bal quickset render, one tight skim of 5-6mm will ste in about an hour and a half! and its ready to tile onto ;)

    yes you can tile onto 1 coat, BUT someone mentioned it is dry in an hour and a half, DONT tile onto any plaster after an hour and a half. Leave it to fully dry out mate, about a week and do NOT use PVA, PVA is water based and therefore holds water behind the adhesive.Use a proper tiling primer.
