Notch Trowel

Roff Notch Trowel is an application tool that is used to spread tile and stone adhesives at the time of tile fixing. This application tool is manufactured with top-quality material and advanced techniques to make it highly useful in evenly spreading tile adhesives during tile installation. This is why Roff’s notch trowel, made of stainless steel, is one of the most preferred application tools on the market. Roff’s Notch trowel comes in different sizes, namely, v-notch (3mm), square notch (6 mm), and U-notch (12 mm). Each of these notch trowels is used for different types of tile applications. As a thumb rule, the wider the tiles, the deeper the notch trowel used in their fixing. Notches in trowels have a crucial role in the tile-setting compound that is spread on the substrate. Usually, v-notch trowels are used for small tiles and even substrates, whereas square and u-notch trowels are versatile and used on a variety of tile sizes and applications.

      Features and Advantages

      • Easy to apply: A notched trowel takes out a thin set of tile adhesive to spread it over the substrate. The trowel has defined notches on the sides that help create an even base for the tile to sit perfectly on the substrate.
      • Proper levelling: The notches that are either square, V-shaped, or U-shaped create a level surface so that tiles are properly aligned. The application tool ensures that extra adhesive does not sit on the surface, which gives professional-looking tiled walls and floors.
      • Full coverage with better bonding: coverage is very important if you want to achieve better bonding between the substrate and tiles. A notched trowel creates an even surface where the tiles are placed to form a strong bond with the substrate.
      • Less time consumption and faster work: Professionals use a notch trowel tool to speed up the tile fixing process. This tool helps in getting a professional tile application in less time and eases the application work.
