THE MASON'S TROWEL, TO SHAPE AND SPREAD THE MORTAR
A basic tool for construction work, the mason's trowel is mainly used to apply mortar and thus erect stone or brick walls. Würth has designed a whole range of trowels for professionals: learn more about the specifics of these high-quality trowels.
ITALIAN TROWELS, ROUNDED TROWELS, CAT-SHAPED TROWELS...
At Würth, we design ergonomic mason's trowels, which allow you to work with the greatest efficiency. These generally have a steel blade which gives them great resistance. Choose from our various models:
• Italian trowels
• Rounded trowels
• Cat-tongue (triangular) trowels
• Flat-point trowels, etc.
THE HANDLE, THE BLADE AND THE LENGTH: KEY ELEMENTS OF THE MASON'S TROWEL
How to determine the model of mason's trowel that will best suit a particular activity? Rely on the handle, blade and template of the tool:
• the handle is the central element of the trowel. It must remain comfortable with use over time. You have the choice between classic wooden handles and two-component plastic handles, with non-slip coating
• the blades can be more or less flexible. In forged trowels, for example, the blade and the handle are made in one piece and are therefore particularly stable
• by choosing a fairly long model, you will be able to process a larger quantity of material. The shorter models, meanwhile, will allow you to work more finely. For precision work, it is advisable to opt for a blade length varying between 160 mm and 180 mm.
CLEAN THE MORTAR AND CEMENT OF YOUR TROWEL, TO EXTEND ITS LIFE
One last tip! Professionals, remember to clean your trowel thoroughly and regularly to guarantee it a longer life, by removing the mortar, cement or plaster accumulated after your masonry work. The use of additional trowels better-suited to certain work will help protect your mason's trowel and allow you to work more efficiently
