Paul Cassidy, Portfolio Development Director at British Gypsum, provides an insight into the company’s range of ThistlePro finish coat plasters and demonstrates how it has been designed to benefit the changing needs of homeowners.

Since the start of the pandemic, the way people buy homes has completely changed. Driven by the introduction of home working and the stamp duty land tax reduction, there has been an increased desire for people wanting to make the most of their money and find somewhere that they are able to live and work.

With this new way of living, we have seen an increased demand in our range of ThistlePro finish coat plasters and their added benefits, including better indoor air quality, increased durability, or the ability to create an interactive space with magnetic plaster. 

When it comes to providing housebuilders with high-performance drylining solutions that help create a positive legacy and a great space to live, our range of ThistlePro finish coat plasters helps our customers build better homes that meet the ever changing needs of homeowners.

Magnetic plaster
ThistlePro Magnetic plaster is a skim finish plaster designed using special additives to attract magnets and provide end users with interactive wall surfaces. This specially formulated high-performance plaster is popular with homeowners looking to adapt spaces to create combined working and living areas, such as converting walls into interactive office notice boards. 

Durable finish
We are spending more time at home than ever before, which means movement around the home is increased and walls are more susceptible to accidental damage. ThistlePro DuraFinish is 60% more hardwearing than our standard plaster, making it our most durable skim finish plaster to date. Developed to withstand everyday wear and tear, this high-performance skim finish plaster provides an ideal solution for walls in busy hallways and stairwells. 

Air quality
Air quality can significantly impact the health and productivity of homeowners and air pollutants, paint, emissions and furniture are all to blame. We spend the majority of our time at home, so the right products and systems will improve air quality inside our homes and the health of those living there.

ThistlePro PureFinish helps remove formaldehyde (a common VOC) from the air. Using Activ’Air technology, formaldehyde emissions are decomposed into non-harmful inert compounds, improving air quality within a home.

This high performance range is just one example of our ongoing efforts to help housebuilders build better homes. We are committed to working with our partner construction customers, sharing our technical know-how and pioneering solutions that not only meet the ever-changing needs of homeowners, but have a positive impact on people and the planet.
