Notes

* Coverage is based on 2mm thickness.

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 Thistle Durafinish) 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.
