Greengates Builders Merchants

Thistle MultiFinish is available at Greengate's!

Thistle MultiFinish is one of British Gypsum's consistently bestselling products and has always been in high demand. Due to knock-on effects from COVID-19 restric­tions, this demand has become so high that most stockists do not have any of the versatile product available; Greengate's, your local builders merchants, is NOT one of those stockists and we have plenty of Thistle MultiFinish available to purchase.

In adherence to guidelines issued by the UK government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, British Gypsum was forced to close down its production lines, resulting in a countrywide shortage of Thistle MultiFinish. This naturally created a problem for professional plasterers, which was further complicated by many DIYers deciding to carry out work on their homes during lockdown.

The situation was made even worse by organised groups of profiteers, some of whom were photographed outside major stores like Wickes and B&Q with trolleys loaded with bags of Thistle MultiFinish which they then sold on to desperate plasterers at a massive, unfair price in order to make a quick and easy profit. Greengate's builders merchant can help to bridge the gap, with our 25kg bags of British Gypsum Thistle MultiFinish available to purchase at our usual competitive price.

Thistle MultiFinish is the most popular universal skim finish plaster, designed for use on common backgrounds and as part of a dual-coat plaster system, where board backgrounds and undercoats are involved in the same project. Demons­trating remarkable flexibility and sound-insulating qualities, the versatile final-coat plaster delivers excellent results on all suction backgrounds and is also perfect for patching and other small jobs.

Thistle MultiFinish is just one of the many products we supply that is suitable for use by professional plasters and DIYers alike. The complete collection, which includes plaster­boards, coving, angle beads and accessories, is available to purchase from the dedicated 'Plaster' section of the Greengate's website.
