Note: The working characteristics of ThistlePro Magnetic differ from other Thistle finishing plasters. These guidelines are based on plastering over Gyproc WallBoard. Thistle Bond-it treated backgrounds may push times out by 10-15 mins. Ensure that the product is suitable for the background to which it is being applied by using the Thistle Plaster Selector Guide.
