At Gypsumtools we’re always on the look out for the latest plastering products to hit the market that will make the job that little bit easier for professional plasterers and DIY fans alike. The sort of tools and equipment that really save you time and effort when you’re working and ones that won’t cost the earth either.
One of our latest finds is an innovative new system called Speedskim which has been designed to speed up the plastering process, help achieve a flatter surface and improve the overall results in the end. It’s a device which enables the plasterer to flatten and rule off with ease and can be used on all sorts of materials, including skim coat, one coat, backing and spray plaster, tape jointing and drywall compounds, as well as lime renders, sand and cement.
So what is Speedskim? Well, it’s pretty unassuming, but it gets some great results. Simply put it’s a flexible plastering rule which has been developed to increase output and improve the quality of finish. It does this through the unique PVC blade which prevents moisture coming to the surface thereby accelerating the overall plastering process, and meaning you can get through the final stages with the steel trowel even quicker.
The benefits of using Speedskim
Not only will it help you get the job done in less time and achieve a flatter finish, but the benefits of using Speedskim also include its lightweight, ergonomic design which makes it more comfortable to use, even over extended periods of time.
Its flexibility sets it apart from other Featheredges and Darbys and allows for greater confidence, meaning that the plasterer can complete larger hits, distributing plaster over a wider area with a flatter and faster finish.
Specially formed ribs on the PVC blade also hold on to any excess plaster and the genius component design gives increased blade stability in a wide variety of temperatures and conditions. If it’s a ceiling that you’re plastering, then this is made much easier by the pole attachment that comes with it.
