    Hi there,

    New to this site and would like to ask some advice from guys in the know!!

    I need to fill 5 wall chases and have been advised to use bonding, finishing it off with easi fill after as it can be sanded flat (due to my plastering skills being questionable!) icon_redface.gif

    Just wanted to know whether either of these 2 products will damage the cables at all?? They are behind metal capping but some might be able to seep behind......

    Regards,

    Saffa

    Nothing wrong with plastering directly over the cables

    As above.

    First isolate the electrics.

    Then soak the wall plaster surfaces on either side of the chase.
    This will take up the suction - to prevent "sticking".
    Use finish plaster for finishing.
