    Hi,
    I need to tile onto some new plasterboard in a kitchen but didn't think and have put two coats of emulsion onto the boards first. Can I tile onto this now or do I need to do anything first?
    Thanks.
    Tim.

    get some fairly rough sandpaper and give it a good scrubbing to create a key code mate

    I did that in my bathroom, dot and dabbed the brick with 12.5mm board, 1 coat of cheap emmulsion to stop excessive sucktion to the boards and tiled full height with wall tiles, not had any problems in 6 months!
