Can you tile directly on Thistle BondingCoat?

No, tiles should not be applied directly to Thistle undercoats, with the exception of Thistle DriCoat. Please refer to WHITE BOOK Chapter 07 Section 02 Page 09 for more details.

What is the minimum temperature that Thistle plaster can be used at?

We recommend 2°C (5°C for ThistlePro DuraFinish and Thistle DriCoat) 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.
