For the convenient installation or repair of cornice, CSR Gyprock has released a Pre-mixed Cornice Cement [$21.95]. The ‘wet’ formula means there’s no mixing of water and powder, allowing you to skip the messy part and get on with the renovation-job. The pre-mixed formula is as strong as regular plaster based cornice cement and ready to use straight out of the bucket. And there is a resealable lid, so the remainder of the mix can be saved and reused at a later date.
Instructions on the bucket can be followed to install cornice in three easy steps:
- After selecting and cutting your cornice to size apply Gyprock Pre-Mixed Cornice Cement generously along the top and bottom edges and to the mitres. Each section should be buttered and fixed separately.
- Remove any surplus cement with a cornice tool and clean over the area with a brush or sponge.
- Fix the cornice to the ceiling and hold in place with temporary nails, allowing the cornice to dry for at least 16 hours before removing the nails.
