Remove the paper backing of the Gyproc Plasterboard Patch and apply the patch over the hole / damaged area and ensure that all of the mesh is stuck down well prior to covering.
Mix up some Gyproc Easi-Fill or other suitable material (the use of Gyproc Easi-Fill 20 allows two coats to be applied in approx. 30 – 40mins) and using a filling knife, caulker or trowel apply over the patch and the surrounding area ensuring the material goes 50mm – 100mm beyond the edge of the metal mesh. Allow the material to set (if using setting compound) or completely dry if using an ‘air drying’ material before applying the next coat. In between coats it maybe advisable to run a filling knife over the area to remove any high peaks or, if the area is fully dry, lightly sand. The second coat should be applied at least 50mm – 100mm beyond the edge of the first coat. If required, further coats can be applied following the same principle of taking each coat 50mm – 100mm beyond the previous coat.
