British Gypsum’s innovative new product Thistle Uni-Finish eliminates the need to pre-treat surfaces with PVA. It is designed to provide a high quality plaster finish across a range of substrates, offering the same benefits as PVA, but removing the hassle of two-step re-skimming.
As well as cutting out an element of the process, Thistle Uni-Finish also removes the need to tailor the level of pre-treatment according to the condition of the substrate, as it adapts to the level of suction and adhesion required. This means installers can just use the one product and one formulation across a whole project to achieve a consistent finish.
Paul D’Arcy, Innovation Team Manager at British Gypsum, said: “Thistle Uni-Finish is the first product of its kind and offers substantial benefits. Plasterers can have the confidence that Thistle Uni-Finish will provide the same high quality and level of finish as its two-step counterpart.”
To celebrate the launch of Thistle Uni-Finish, British Gypsum is giving customers the chance to claim back the cost of their first 25kg bag of the product by posting their feedback online. To qualify for the ‘satisfaction guarantee’, customers simply have to pick up a promotional leaflet from their merchant, go online to www.british-gypsum.com/thistleunifinish to give a brief review of the product, and then follow the instructions to claim their money back.
Durapipe SuperFLO PN6
Durapipe has launched a new PN6 (6-bar) rated ABS metric pipe as an addition to its SuperFLO range.
The new pipe that is specifically for larger diameter projects is available in ABS material in three different sizes; 225mm, 250mm & 315mm.
The pipe is slightly cheaper than Durapipe’s standard PN10 (10-bar) pipe and has therefore been developed for building services projects where a lower cost ABS pipe option may be required, but with a lower pressure rating being sufficient.
For further information please telephone Durapipe’s Customer Services team on 01543 273100 or contact via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Ar Puro – Pure Air – has a stainless steel frame, allowing for the top layer of concrete to be elegantly slim.

Heckmondwike Swatch Samples
Heckmondwike FB, the UK’s leading specialist in heavy contract carpets and carpet tiles, has launched a new sample card designed to showcase its popular Array range alongside the complementary Broadrib samples.
The sampler highlights the range of striking colour options available as part of the range, including two new additions to the Broadrib range – Red and Cerise – accenting the Red and Magenta Array options respectively. In total, the new look sample card offers six colour ways.
With a smart linear pattern in a choice of six vibrant accent shades, Array is a fresh take on a popular design trend. As well as maintaining its distinctive appearance through anti-ravel and fray technology, the low maintenance tile range also offers increased thermal and acoustic properties.
Complementing the Array range with a similar selection of colour ways, the heavy contract carpets in the Broadrib range offer defined contrast in texture with a distinctive wide rib pattern. The British-made, easily maintained Broadrib carpets also deliver antistatic and anti-slip performance, excellent acoustic properties and impressive thermal insulation properties.
