Thistle Multi-Finish

Thistle MultiFinish

Thistle MultiFinish is the most popular universal skim finish plaster for common backgrounds; it can be used as part of a two-coat plaster system or on plasterboard.  Its flexibility also makes it an ideal choice for small repair jobs and patching.

Skimming with Thistle MultiFinish adds additional sound insulation to many of the GypWall CLASSIC systems by up to 2dB.

FAQs
When using Thistle MultiFinish can I paint wet plaster?

Yes as long as the paint is permeable which will allow the plaster to dry out.

Can I plaster straight onto a painted wall?

Plastering on existing painted walls is possible if the paint is in very good condition.

Can I apply Thistle MultiFinish to sand & cement undercoats?

Thistle MultiFinish would be suitable although suction may need to be controlled (e.g. with Thistle GypPrime).

Can you skim an MR grade board?

Yes, however the board usually needs to be primed with ThistleBond-It.

What is the minimum temperature that Thistle plaster can be used at?

We recommend 2°C (5°C for ThistlePro DuraFinish and Thistle DriCoat) as the minimum working temperature in which plaster should be applied. It is important that the temperature does not drop below 0°C during application or in the setting and drying phase.

What thicknesses are plasters applied?

Undercoat plasters are usually 11mm and most finish coat plasters are 2mm thick.

Did you know? There is a gypsum finish plaster specially formulated for increased resistance to accidental damage.

ThistlePro DuraFinish enables significantly longer maintenance intervals and lower long-term cost
