    Thistle Tough Coat is a gypsum undercoat plaster for use on most masonry walls. With a final coat of Thistle Multi-Finish it provides a smooth, inert, high quality surface to internal walls. The combination has superior impact resistance, earlier surface drying, a higher than normal resistance to efflorescence, and gives a durable base for the application of decorative finishes. Thistle Tough Coat is a lightweight, retarded hemihydrate, pre-mixed British gypsum plaster, incorporating special aggregates and additives, requiring only the addition of clean water to prepare it for use. It is suitable for application by hand or by plaster projection machine.


    Fire resistance: Gypsum plasters provide good fire protection due to the

    unique behaviour of gypsum in fire. 

    Thermal resistance

    11mm Thistle Tough Coat with a final coat of 2mm Thistle Multi-Finish (total thickness 13mm) has a thermal resistance (R) of 0.05m2 K/W.

    Effect of condensation and other moisture

    Thistle Tough Coat should be protected from continuous exposure to moisture. Prolonged or repeated exposure to moisture may cause a loss of strength and/or adhesion.


    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.
