    I’m about to re-point my patio but unsure which plasticiser to buy. I looked on screwfix but not really sure the difference between them all. https://www.screwfix.com/c/building-doors/additives-plasticisers/cat850194?cm_sp=managedredirect-_-building-_-plasticiser

    Any recommendations greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    I used some of the £4.29 one in the mix to lay my slabs.

    I’m using Blue Circle Mastercrete and I checked today and their website says it does not need plasticiser so might risk it

    I’ve use the Hanson stuff and that claims extra workability on the bag. I still put some on to help me with the 3x2’s :LOL:

    Did you just use half the recommended amount for example? Thanks

    No, I filled a bucket with water then poured a good 100ml in.
