Rated 5 out of 5 by Why would u use anything else? I've spent lots of time coving for myself, and for other people, and I can honestly say that this is without doubt the best coving I've used. Very well packaged, and beautifully light weight. The 4 tubes of adhesive / filler supplied are more than enough to cove a 4m2 room, with plenty left over. I've used this coving in every room in my house. It cuts easy enough with a fine tooth saw, and is very easy to put up on your own. I have had to use the odd pin here and there to keep it from slipping. Especially on the joins and corners and things, but once it's up firmly it's not going anywhere. I'd say a mitre box and a corner tool are essential for instillation. The only down side for me, and I've found this with coving generally, is that it seems to be quite porous when painting. I find a coat or two of PVA to seal it before painting works well to stop that though. Although it's not essential. I can't really fault it if I'm honest. I'll continue to use it for years to come. Other than bringing down the price, I honestly don't see how they could better it. 3 Jun 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good buy Excellent value for money, very easy to fit. The adhesive is also good for filling. 23 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply brilliant! Fantastic product that really makes using traditional plaster coving seem a bit old hat! Both the supercove coving and adhesive are really top quality & easy to handle, and with no need to pin the job is made so much easier even on a very uneven ceiling (probably a good idea to purchase an extra tube of adhesive filler for uneven ceilings). Totally recommended this product. 21 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great stuff This is an excellent alternative to plaster coving. One person can fit it without props or pins as it is so light. Very easy to cut with a fine toothed saw and mitre block. The adhesive has great grab and sets quickly, the finished job looks just like plaster coving but it has the added benefit of being bathroom/kitchen friendly 21 Apr 2016

Answer: 
I don't know for sure, but as it is made from polyurethane and paper, I would say that it isn't likely to be fireproof. I don't recall seeing any fire ratings or warnings on the packaging.

Answer: 
Yes, it has a paper covering. It takes a lot of paint though and I found it helpful to coat it in watered-down PVA solution to seal it. 1 part PVA to 5 parts water.

Answer: 
I used a DIY mitre template (£3.99 from a competitor) which was good and easy, but the Screwfix (ForgeSteel) mitre box may make it even easier. I have a lot more to do now that I have the bug for installing it, so I may splash out on a coving mitre box (don't use an ordinary mitre box, you will get the wrong angles at the joins). I also used a 15TPI saw, but it cuts easily with a knife. I'd say not to use a hacksaw, as it may be difficult to maintain the angle of the cut (which is fairly critical). You could use the pre-formed corners, although you will end up with two butt joints instead of scarf joints. Butt joints are more difficult to disguise.

Answer: 
As far as I could tell, it doesn't matter. The finish is the same and the coving profile is symmetrical. The only thing to watch is that you use your cutting template correctly.
