ThistlePro FastSet Finish Plaster

How does the ThistlePro range differ to Thistle Essential plasters?

The range’s performance and different application to Thistle MultiFinish sets the products apart.

Installation guides are available from British Gypsum


ThistlePro FastSet Finish has a faster installation process when compared with Thistle MultiFinish. For the fastest finish, a single mix for both first and second coat is recommended.

ThistlePro Magnetic plaster is applied with thicker coats of around 2mm at a time rather than the standard 1mm, with a total application thickness between 3-6mm. Due to the make-up of the plaster, it has a longer setting time between coats and requires more attention than a regular plaster.
