ThistlePro FastSet Finish

Three months after launch, ThistlePro® FastSet Finish is proving to be very popular with plasterers and merchants alike.

We’re seeing an overwhelmingly positive response and burgeoning sales of ThistlePro® FastSet Finish – our new rapid-setting plaster – since we launched it to the UK market in April.

ThistlePro FastSet Finish is a high-performance skim finish plaster, ideal for a wide range of repairs and use on smaller internal walls and ceilings due to its fast-setting attributes. A complete all-in-one bagged product, it also negates the need for plasterers to use additives or other methods to speed up setting times, a practice which can impact on overall plaster performance and potentially void the product guarantee.

It’s proved to be a major hit with tradespeople across the UK, with dozens of plasterers taking to social media to sing its praises. Comments include: “A brilliant solution to a real problem”; “I’ve definitely found my Friday plaster. A walk-in wardrobe smashed out in no time thanks to FastSet Finish”; and “It sets in half the time of normal plaster. It’s absolutely brilliant, it’s fantastic for the little jobs on the way home so you’re not sat around waiting.”

Merchants have also been very positive about the plaster: “Branches that have taken stock are (saying) their customers love the product… it’s an easy sell to customers” and reports that stocks of ThistlePro FastSet Finish have sold out within just two hours of arriving in store. While it’s often used for patching and repairs, merchants have also reported numerous examples of ThistlePro FastSet Finish being used on other jobs where there is a tight schedule.

ThistlePro FastSet Finish typically sets in half the time of standard skim finish plaster, with no compromise on performance. This enables more rapid completion of projects, maximising customer satisfaction and allowing plasterers to move on to their next project sooner.

Paul Cassidy, Product Portfolio Development Director, explained: “We’re absolutely delighted with the response from the sector to ThistlePro FastSet Finish since its launch. 

“So often, speed is of the essence in building projects - other tasks must be completed after plastering, so a product which dries quickly while still delivering optimal performance is vital".

Our new ThistlePro FastSet Finish is available to order from builder’s merchants around the UK. To find out more about the latest product, visit the product page here.
