Finishing putty: the subtleties of Choice and use

Finishing putty can itself be the final decorative finish.

Its immediate Goal is:

  • Improving the standard of the working surface following the prior rougher treatment and preparing it for further finishing;
  • Giving the surface a decorative look, uniform coloration.
  • “Knauf-Multifinish paste” ready-made plastic sheeting 20kg

    KNAUF-Multi-finish glue is a readymade filler mix according to polymer dispersion with vitamin limestone additives and additives that regulate the properties of the mixture.

    It’s used indoors for:

    • Puttying the joints involving KNAUF-sheets with a thinned edge (UC) and a straight cut border, in combination with reinforcing tape;
    • Finishing puttying the joints and surface of KNAUF-sheets, embedded with the mix KNAUF-Fugenfuller or KNAUF-Uniflot, from the preparation of this surface to get high-quality painting;

    KNAUF-Multi-finish paste should not be used for sealing joints between perforated sound absorbing gypsum boards.


    • Doesn’t need mixing and aging;
    • comes with an elastic consistency;
    • matches the joints well;
    • dries fast;
    • can be easily sanded;
    • includes a fantastic adhesion to the substrate;
    • has a high amount of whiteness after drying.

    Material consumption

    Consumption of the filler mix is:

    • When sealing the joints of KNAUF-sheets with a thin edge of the AC ~ 0.30-0.35 kg/m2
    • at full puttying of this face with 1 Millimeter layer depth ~ 1.7 kg/m2

    Procedure of works

    The temperature of the base along with the space air has to be at least 10°C.

    KNAUF-boards have to be firmly assembled on the load-bearing frame, be dry, clean and dust-free. Puttying the joints of KNAUF-boards need to be reached at the operational temperature and humidity conditions, following all work associated with its changes, which instills linear deformations of all gypsum board sheets.

    Massive irregularities or damages must be levelled with KNAUF-Fugenfüller dried and compound.
