    Default what render do you use to patch up bits and pieces??

    i have got some of this sitting around
    https://www.bunnings.com.au/dunlop-2...ender_p0760242
    i want to patch up some block walls where there has been light switches and wiring removed, part of a fence, etc.. and i tried this stuff on a piece of cement fibre to around 4mm and let it dry for most of the day and i can rub it off with my hand and it just all turns to dust and i am left with a pile of dust and a perfect piece of cement fibre board again.
    did i do something wrong or is this stuff not suitable??

    Yes Wozza you did something wrong, cement render is like any other cement, you have to give it time to cure .
    I'd prime it with Bondcrete or similar before doing it, maybe even a slurry with some sand and cement powder included.
    You could just patch a small part of it and give it a week or two to cure then test it to see if it's suitable. I think it would be as i've used this product before with good results.
    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
