10mm – Raimondi slant ridge tilers trowels with rounded notch provide many advantages – When placing adhesive spread with a slanted ridge, the ridges overlap and collapse to provide superior adhesive coverage on the back of the tile compared to a standard notched trowel.
Superior adhesive bonding also increases the efficiency of in-floor heating systems as it removes air pockets which inhibit the transfer of heat to the flooring.
This collapsible ridge and the ability to provide maximum coverage is even more valuable in cases where bond failure is more prevalent such as: large format tile installations, high moisture areas such as pools and installations subject to extremes in temperature (i.e. exterior installations, or installations beneath large windows).
The rounded shape of the notch reduces the chance of the adhesive binding and ripping away the ridges while troweling. The adhesive does not bind in the rounded corners of this notch so the adhesive ridges stay intact.
