Knauf has launched a new range of powdered joint fillers and finishes that give improved workability for contractors and provide a better finish for follow-on trades.
Joint Filler Premium and Joint Cement Premium provide bedding and finishing for joint tape respectively while the Fill and Finish Premium option can be used for both applications.
The Premium range was developed following extensive research with contractors, researching the characteristics that would be required from a perfect jointing range.
The result is an easy to use range with a finer finish, great coverage and setting time options.
The Fill and Finish product is available in two options with a choice of 30 or 60 minutes working time – ideal for smaller projects. With an eye to the skilled DIY-er this product is also available in either 5kg or 10kg bag sizes.
Knauf Joint Cement Premium for finishing joints by hand gives an exceptional finish requiring minimal sanding. Site trials suggest that this is a significant advance on alternatives available in the market and is ideal for larger contracts.
Knauf Joint Filler is also proving popular for larger projects where the 90 minute working time should eliminate any waste caused by premature setting in the bucket.
All three products are supplied in powder form for mixing on-site and a key characteristic of the new formulation is the extended shelf life. All now offer at least nine months making the range a much better stocking option for merchants and giving greater flexibility for contractors.
The Jointing range is an obvious companion for Knauf plasterboard products and the investment in the research and development process is an indication of Knauf’s commitment to developing system-based solutions for the contractor market.
The new products will be available through merchants from July 2018.
