Toupret Strengthens its Collection with Flexible Fillers for Repairing Substrates that Move


Toupret has bolstered its Problem Surfaces collection with two versatile flexible products, both addressing substrates where movement can be a problem. These two products further allow professionals to find their perfect filler for repairing unstable surfaces.

Fill-Flex is a highly flexible filler for gaps and cracks, perfect for filling the gaps around skirting, architraves and on staircases where movement is possible – its flexible formula moves with the substrate and won’t crack. The filler is suitable for new and renovated surfaces, and it adheres to paintwork with no need to spot prime. Fill-Flex is suitable for both internal and external use. It is available in a 310ml cartridge, for use with an applicator gun, and a 1kg tub.

The second product in this collection of flexible fillers is Skim-Flex, a fine skimcoat that remains flexible when dry, perfect for coating when treating re-appearing cracks or substrates with some movement. It can also be used inside or outside, suitable for damp areas and is breathable.

The mixture is extremely adhesive, and it can even be applied over smooth surfaces such as tiles or glass, making it an ideal skim-filling solution for kitchens and bathrooms. It can also be used for light filling up to 5mm and is ready to use straight from the 5kg tub.

The skim-flex product update is part of a major rebrand and product reorganisation for Toupret. The Problem Surfaces collection is now signified with a green colourway offering a striking shelf point of difference.

With the goal of making a great quality filling job simpler and quicker for professionals, Toupret also wanted to make it much easier for tradespeople to choose the best product for any given task. As such, many of the products have been renamed to make their application as clear as possible. However, Toupret knows it has a loyal customer base and so the old product names remain discreetly on the packaging to ensure familiarity for all whilst introducing new simplified product descriptions – for example ‘Fill-Flex’ will appear alongside the historical ‘Fibacryl’ product name.

Both Problem Surfaces flexible products are available to purchase from trade distributors nationwide.
