Best Plastering Spatula – Buying Guide

The Plastering spatula is a wider type of spatula than usual, specially designed to place the paper tape and apply the plasterboard paste between the plates.

What are plasterboard spatulas and what are they for?

The plasterboard spatulas are used to put and cover the paper tapes (or fiber mesh) between the plasterboard plates. This task is done by overlapping several layers of plasterboard paste. A larger spatula than the previous one is used in each layer, which leaves a smooth, flat, and precise finish, as its blade glides over a larger surface.

The best plasterboard spatulas have thick aluminum or brass reinforcement at the base, similar to that of woodworking rib saws. This reinforcement increases the stiffness of the sheet and restricts its flexibility. It is what allows us to apply the right amount of paste, neither too much nor too little, to minimize its subsequent sanding.

What is the best spatula for plasterboard?

The plasterboard spatula is also called the American spatula. In my opinion, one of the best plasterboard spatulas is that of the OX PRO brand. OX PRO manufactures three widths of spatula: 20 cm, 25 cm and 30 cm.

  1. OX PRO Series Taping Knife – Flexible Plastering Spatula

The OX PRO spatula for plasterboard has a good quality beech wood handle that is riveted to the aluminum plate. Its OX PRO Series Taping Knife - Flexible Plastering Spatulablade is made of highly wear-resistant polished stainless steel with a perfectly ground edge so that you achieve a perfect finish on your joints.

The plasterboard electric screwdriver is not perfect. And going around changing the screwdriver and spatula is a waste of time. So that.

  • Stainless spatula
  • Rounded blades with 90º angle, perfectly ground, aligned and polished
  • Excellent handle blade union
  • Beechwood handle, light and pleasant to the touch

Pro Tip: To put the plasterboard on for maximum efficiency, I advise you to buy a PH2 Phillips Impact Screwdriver Tip Spatula on the handle. With it you can tighten the protruding screws.

  1. Jung Henkelmann 22010001 – Soft stainless steel spatula

To work with these spatulas, I recommend that you buy an extremely useful accessory: a stainless steel drawer. ThisJung Henkelmann 22010001 - Soft stainless steel spatula is wide enough so you can use all three spatula widths (20, 25, and 30 cm).

The plasterboard drawer does two things. First, to contain the joint paste, of course, and second, its polished edges allow you to clean the edge of the spatula without releasing it from your hand, which is priceless.

Finally, I have to tell you about the plasterboard spatulas for corners. I find the interior angles especially useful, sinceOX Speed Skimming Stainless Steel Flex Finishing Spatula it allows you to finish the meeting between the walls without damaging the surface. With the flat spatula it is much more difficult to get it.

As for the exterior plasterboard spatula, it is also useful. It certainly saves time. However, in my opinion, the outer corners can be easily worked with a flat spatula.

  • Joining the joints by welding bead
  • Polished finish
