FRP Adhesive Trowel Size?


I am going to be installing a 4 x 4 piece of FRP on a smooth surface. (drywall) What size v-notch trowel is recommended to spread the adhesive?

The notch size/spacing depends on the adhesive mfg.

drawing from memory you should be using the smallest vnotch trowel you can get. frp is very thin and has a pretty smooth back so you want even coverage and have it so it doesnt create bulges under neath the panels

Looks like 3/16" x 1/4" V-Notch will do the trick. Thanks
