The Glove Test for Coving

June 16, 2021

After using a masonry rub stone to sand your cove base, use the glove test to ensure the surface is perfectly smooth. While wearing nitrile or fabric gloves, wipe the surface of the cove with your hand. If there are any burrs or rough spots, the glove will snag on it. If your glove snags, continue sanding. Continue to sand until you can successfully wipe your hand across the entire surface without your glove snagging.
