Also known as spackle knives, spatulas, joint knives, taping knives, and putty knives, these flexible spreaders are less rigid than scrapers and are typically used to apply compound or spackle and lay joint tape to repair cracks, seams, and holes in surfaces. Plastic spreaders are less likely to damage soft surfaces than metal spreaders, but metal spreaders are stiffer and provide more control.
For Small Surface Areas
Pick up one of these small spreaders, also known as putty or joint knives, for good control in tight spaces when patching holes and cracks on walls and ceilings. These compact tools can work in corners and recesses where larger spreaders cannot fit.
For Large Surface Areas
Also known as taping knives because they are commonly used to lay tape when installing drywall, these flexible spreaders have a thin, wide blade that can quickly cover a large surface area when patching and filling seams, cracks, and holes.
Made from nonferrous materials, these flexible spreaders help minimize the risk of the tool generating a spark while spreading compound and spackle in environments that contain flammable solvents, liquids, vapors, dusts, or residues.
Make sure you have the right tool for patching surfaces with these flexible spreader sets. Sets contain multiple spreaders in a range of sizes for working on large and small surface areas.
