Does ThistlePro FastSet Finish qualify for the British Gypsum SpecSure® systems warranty?
No. ThistlePro FastSet Finish is not a performing system and therefore does not qualify on its own for the SpecSure® warranty. However, ThistlePro FastSet Finish is covered by the product guarantee, meaning that in the unlikely event of a product failure, it’ll be repaired or replaced by British Gypsum.
What is ThistlePro FastSet Finish specifically designed for?
How do I plaster in excessive heat?
Although there is no definitive maximum room temperature for plastering, additional care should be taken when outside temperatures are considered higher than ‘normal’, as the plaster setting times may be reduced.
During installation of British Gypsum products dust may be generated. Any dust (regardless of chemical composition) is considered to be a substance hazardous to health under COSHH if it is present at a concentration in air equal or greater than 10mg/m3 (for inhalable dust) or 4mg/m3 (for respirable dust).
Which side of the board should face outwards?
For all Gyproc plasterboards, the coloured paper face with screw markings should face outwards and is the side suitable for plastering or direct decoration.
