LayFlat™ Notched Trowels Now Available
MARSHALLTOWN is excited to introduce its new LayFlat™ Notched Trowel Line, now available to all customers. The unique wave-shaped notches create ridges that provide an overlapping and more easily collapsible action of thinset mortar, eliminating air pockets between the substrate and tile. This results in superior coverage and adhesion for medium to large format tile applications.
LayFlat™ Notched Trowels are constructed using the same professional quality materials as the 700 series notched trowel line, which is made of highest grade carbon steel, equipped with an aluminum alloy Xtralite® mounting, and DuraSoft® handle.
