I've plasterboarded using moisture resistant board and plan to title round the bath using Tile Adhesive Primer first. I was wondering whether this primer is also suitable for plastering the opposite side of the bathroom rather than using PVA?

Good luck with applying tile to MR drywall, even with tile primer. I would have encouraged you to use hardy-backer or concrete board as a backer for grouted tile instead of blue/green board. – shirlock homes Feb 12 '14 at 14:21
What are you going to "plaster" the other walls with? – shirlock homes Feb 12 '14 at 14:21
was thinking thistle multi-finish – gawpertron Feb 12 '14 at 15:27
I see this is a European product I am not real familiar with. I looked it up on the internet and it looks like a hard plaster finish. If you put this on drywall, you are going to need a good sealer on the rock and perhaps a bonding layer. – shirlock homes Feb 13 '14 at 22:39
