So the rumor going on the street is that when you joint two cement products together you need some kind of bonding agent.. I have used them and what I have noticed is that they turn the surface a bit rough. Since plaster is a cement product, why pool builders dont use a bonding agent before plastering? Maybe the product used already have a built in bonding agent on the mix? or since the shell is so rough (gunite or shotcrete), it doesn't need it?
