Choosing the Right Notched Squeegee

December 17, 2018

Choosing the right notched squeegee is the first step to getting the proper coverage. The thickness of the material application differs with each size of notched squeegee used:

  • 1/8” notch- 8 mils
  • 3/16” notch- 16 mils
  • 1/4” notch- 20 mils
  • 3/8” notch- 40 mils

In addition to using the proper squeegee, mark out each mix by placing a piece of tape on the wall prior to installation. This is a quick step to ensure that enough material to complete the job is onsite, as well as provides a visual marker to monitor coverage throughout the install.

A notched squeegee needs to be replaced approximately every 1,000 sq. ft., depending on the roughness of the substrate.
