In a first for the industry, British Gypsum, the UK’s leading manufacturer of interior lining systems, has launched its new Thistle Magnetic Plaster.

The innovative plaster provides a smooth, high quality surface, creating an interactive wall that attracts magnets, making it ideal for home and office environments.

Thistle Magnetic Plaster is now available to merchants nationwide in 25kg bags, and can be ordered in either single bag quantities or pallets.

The product, which requires a minimum thickness of 3mm, is applied in exactly the same way as standard British Gypsum Thistle Plaster, and can be decorated with either paint or wallpaper without any loss of magnetic effect.

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 room 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.”
