Home News, Contacts & Resources Latest News 2014 March BRITISH GYPSUM LAUNCHES MAGNETIC PLASTER



British Gypsum, the UK’s leading manufacturer of interior lining systems, has launched an innovative magnetic plaster, which provides a smooth, high quality surface creating an interactive wall that attracts magnets, ideal for home, as well as working environments. 

Following a significant trial period with homeowners and professional installers, Thistle Magnetic Plaster is now available for stocking by merchants nationwide.
Fiona Bashford, head of product marketing at British Gypsum, explains: “Within the residential market, there’s a real need for products and systems which allow the living spaces to be used in a more flexible way.

“By changing walls from simple, inactive space dividers into interactive, creative surfaces, it adds value to a space and as a result it has already received huge interest from plasterers, housebuilders and consumers up and down the UK.”

Thistle Magnetic Plaster, which requires a minimum thickness of 3mm, is applied in the same way as standard British Gypsum Thistle Plasters and can be decorated without any loss of magnetic effect.

Thistle Magnetic Plaster is available in 25kg bags. For more information on stocking details contact the British Gypsum Customer Service Centre on: 0800 225 225.
