BACKGROUNDS TYPES Solid Concrete Plasterboards E.m.l Bonding agents Other elements Masonry,brick,block Pre-cast. In situ. M.R. or Standard liner Rib lath or eml sheets Thistlebond- it, PVA Bituminous Emulsions
PREPARATION Know the backgrounds Check the work areas Scaffolding required Know the products to specify Mixing areas, water, etc. Prepare the backgrounds as necessary Grounds, Linings etc. Clean,Dry etc.
Aerated Concrete Blocks Lightweight blocks used regularly in housing.
What kind of a key does the background have ?? Smooth ? Rough ? Does it require a mechanical key ? Are they standard concrete block OR Dense concrete blocks ??
Which Plasters where? Hardwall Masonry,blockwork, [low to high suction] Bonding Coat Concrete,dense blocks,bonding agents [low suction substrates] eml.Plasterboards Browning Masonry/blocks with good key/medium suction Tough Coat High use areas, Masonry
Which Plasters where? RenovatingMasonry/blockwork - low/high suction Dri-CoatMasonry,DPC [replastering] X Raymasonry/Rib Laths, dense blocks,must have good key. Projection & UniveralFull range of backings – masonry/ blocks/bonding agents/plasterboards.
Thistle Bond-It Provides a mechanical key to many smooth surfaces (e.g Ceramic tiles, cast concrete etc.) Always roller applied
ThistleBond-it A bonding agent specially formulated for use on smooth backgrounds. Contains fine aggregate for better mechanical key. Achieves chemical adhesion. Plaster can be applied when the thistle bond - it is dry. No dilution. Applied with a heavy pile/texture roller. Green colour for easier identification.
Thistle Prime For the pre-treatment of very high suction backgrounds. Dilutes as necessary, giving total flexibility to suit the background concerned. Yellow colour for ease of identification. Thistle Prime and ThistleBond - it are the only recommended solutions for use with Thistle Plasters.
