trowels
Flexstone V-Notch Trowels (3/8" x 3/8")

Custom Flexstone trowels have 3/8" x 3/8" V Notches designed specifically to spread the Flexstone base coat to the ideal thickness. The trowels are composed of polished steel so any product stuck to the tool will peel off easily once it has cured, allowing them to be re-used.

Available in 11" and 14" sizes.

squeegees
Flexstone V-Notch Squeegees (3/8" x 3/8")

3/8" x 3/8" V notched squeegees are ideal for larger projects and open areas. Fitted with an adapter, simply insert a pole and spread the base coat standing up and faster than ever before.

Available in 18", 24" and 30" sizes.

seamtape-rb
Adhesive-backed absorbent seam-tape

Adhesive-backed absorbent seam tape is installed quickly and easily by rolling the tape out over plywood seams. When the base coat is troweled over the tape, it absorbs into the surface (without dripping through the cracks) creating a permanent bond and preventing material from sinking into seams.
