British Gypsum has unveiled new look packaging for its plaster range.

The plaster bags, which are being rolled out across the portfolio from July, have been designed to make product selection as easy as possible and give customers at-a-glance instructions for use on the job.

Following extensive customer consultation, British Gypsum, part of the Saint Gobain group, has updated its packaging to feature installation guidelines, as well as a summary table of key product information, including finishing time and coverage per bag. A solution selection guide is also included on the packaging, allowing installers to quickly choose the best plaster for the job.

“These latest improvements are all designed to make it easier for plasterers to choose solutions in-store and ensure using our products on site is as straightforward as possible,” explains Edward Wills, Plaster Product Manager at British Gypsum. “While improving the functionality of our packaging however, there has been no impact on performance. Customers can expect the same high quality and robustness from the bags, but with an updated design to make selection and use that little bit simpler.”
