What are Superflex trowels?

Superflex and flexible trowels are some of the most essential tools when it comes to plastering.

In recent years the first Superflex was introduced by Refina and they quickly gained traction and found their way into plaster tool kits - cementing itself as a must-have.

The Superflex stainless steel trowel is used as a finishing trowel that allows for a more flexible blade, meaning more control when you need it. The blade comes in various sizes, with the most popular being 0.25mm and 0.4mm.

The science behind the Superflex trowel is simple - the more flexibility your trowel allows, the more the actual blade surface can touch or be in contact with the wall when plastering. It's simple ergonomics at play!

Although the Superflex trowel is not an all-around finishing trowel, it is still functional to have. Due to its thin blade, however, it can get damaged easily, especially when compared to stainless steel plastering trowels, which is why expert plasterers recommend using a flexible trowel when coming upon the later stages of the skimming process. 

Effectively use a Flexi trowel 

Before embarking on your plastering journey, it is essential to understand how to use your tools to avoid errors and mishaps.

Before using a trowel, especially a flexible one, the wall should be flattened with a sturdy skimming trowel. Then, using a tiny amount of water, the multi finish or board finish is trowel ready.

An expert plasterer in the field can achieve the finish on the wall without having to use fat staining and still come up with a clean, uniform, matte finish that is ready for decorative stages or paint.

A Superflex trowel will help you achieve a level 5 finish due to its design. The flexible blade allows the sprayed plaster to flatten that much.

There are a number of Superflex plastering trowels available in the market today including Refina, Ox/Nela, Beroflex, Nela, and Marshalltown. Amaroc carries the best brands with varying sizes.

Nela Superflex 

The Nela SuperFlex trowel excited many back in 2014 and is still going strong.

The Nela SuperFlex is one of the available finishing trowels that are specifically designed to provide a convenient and ergonomic way to finish up a plastering job. It is not designed for laying on because it's so flexible, though we know some plasterers still do - whatever works for you!

Before the rise of the Nela Superflex, plaster trowels were all the rage. But plasterers started noticing that they weren't the best investments as plastic trowels deteriorate quickly and lack the performance needed from them. Besides not being sturdy enough, plastic trowels were difficult to work with, often making plasterers' wrists sore.

But with a flexible trowel such as the Nela Superflex, painful wrists aren’t a problem anymore!

They are flexible, but also durable as they are made of steel, making sure that this purchase is long-lasting.

Plasterers report that using a flexible trowel allows them to easily finish a set without needing to splash or spray water in order to get a flat and matte finish. They effectively cut off 30 minutes of work time!
