Frequently asked question

Can I plaster straight onto a painted wall?

Plastering on existing painted walls is possible if the paint is in very good condition (in terms of adhesion). It may be possible to wire brush the surface using a suitable detergent and apply ThistleBond-it prior to the application of Thistle MultiFinish. On most paints you can use Thistle UniFinish without the need for any pre-treatment. We suggest carrying out this procedure on a trial area to ascertain the suitability (adhesion). Please refer to WHITE BOOK Chapter 07 Section 02 Page 05 & Page 07 for more details.
