Q for Mudster

Discussion in 'Other Trades Talk' started by Boxer Red, Oct 28, 2005.

  1. mudster, would you use 4mm ply then?

    You know, where people get the idea this is sound is beyond me, even Amtico needs 6mm ply and that's a vinyl...

    Go figure....

    pva mixed with cement and it will give you a nice non slip surface too.

    really

    tkf, using double sided sticky tape is a bad idea, i use wriggleys gum glue. ;)

    Incorrect, this method only works on Manhole covers ;)
     
  5. How about cling film?

    I was going in with slabs set on a bed of dry mix, but you guys have got it covered

    You could probably get away with 4mm ply but I prefer overboarding with 6mm ply, as it works better when countersinking screws, I find the 4mm a bit too thin for me. I mostly use Karndean though which is thinner than Amtico

    DUST, a nice layer of dust should strengthen it up nicely.

    At no point do you need to use marine ply, WBP is fine.<<


    Hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahaha a hahaahahaha
    hahahahahaha :):D


    Stick the vinyl to the bottom of your shoes - wall to wall vinyl in every room of the house.



    Mr. Handyandy - really
     
  15. Aquapanel is 12mm thick.

    Does the room outside have carpet?

    If it does this is usually 18mm for a good carpet and underlay, often you won't notice any step.

    Boxer, why don't you use a hard wood threshold strip. I normally buy the wood and plane it to suite the different levels

    Oh and WBP is a specification of ply, that is suitable for your requirements, I can't remember what the letter stand for but you don't need to know..:)
     
  20. WBP - weather and boil proof.

    WBP ply must be able to withstand 72 in boiling water (god knows why) without delaminating.
