Knauf to focus on it machine-sprayable plasters

Knauf Drywall is to focus its research and development resources on its machine-sprayable finishing plasters, after seeing sales of the innovative sprayable plasters over the last 12 months outstripping their traditional hand-applied plasters for the first time.

The company has a long history in machine-sprayable plasters, having introduced its first product – the MP75 – into the UK in 1964. The company will now only offer sprayable plasters in the UK, to ensure that it stays at the head of the field for such products.

Paul Tollervey, the company’s research and development manager, said that while a number of hand-applied plasters will be withdrawn – including the Knauf Finishing Plaster, Knauf Multicover, Knauf FP90, Knauf Universal Board Finish and Knauf Pro Board Finish – their sprayable range will allow tradesmen to keep on the very edge of modern developments.

He explained, “By focusing our production, research and development resources on these cutting-edge products, we are confident of bringing even more innovations to the market in the future to further improve the quality, speed and sustainability of our finishing plasters.”

At the forefront of Knauf’s range is MPFinish, which is the result of years of research and testing. It can be applied at a 2-3mm thickness and is extremely tough, drying to a durable and smooth white finish in less than 3 hours.
