The 2-3 type brick trowel specifically refers to the size and shape of the blade, with a width ranging from 2 to 3 inches.

Uyus brick trowel -2-3 uses

  1. Mortar Application: The primary function of a brick trowel is to scoop up mortar and apply it to the bricks or blocks. The flat, pointed blade allows for precise control and even distribution of mortar as bricks are laid in place.
  2. Brick Laying: Masons use the 2-3 type brick trowel to lay bricks in a neat and uniform manner. The size and shape of the trowel are well-suited for handling standard-sized bricks.
  3. Buttering Bricks: Before placing a brick, masons apply mortar to its end with the trowel, a technique known as “buttering.” This ensures a good bond between bricks and enhances the structural integrity of the wall.
  4. Cutting and Shaping Mortar: The pointed tip of the trowel can be used to cut and shape mortar as needed during the construction process. This helps in achieving clean joints and a polished finish.
  5. Removing Excess Mortar: After placing a brick, the trowel is often used to remove any excess mortar from the joints. This helps maintain a tidy and professional appearance while ensuring the structural integrity of the wall.
  6. Smoothing Surfaces: Masons use the flat side of the trowel to smooth the surface of the mortar joints, creating a clean and aesthetically pleasing finish.
  7. Precision Work: The 2-3 type brick trowel is suitable for precision work, especially in intricate or detailed areas where a smaller trowel may be required.
  8. Pointing Joints: Masons use the edge of the trowel to shape and point the mortar joints between bricks. This enhances the appearance of the wall and provides additional strength to the structure.
