    6.5thk 150x150 (147x147) bathroom wall tiles.

    Is there a specific size notch trowel for lighter tiles, what thickness finished adhesive thickness would it give?

    Just trying to get an idea what combined tile+adhesive thickness would be.

    Thank you

    I'd probably use a 6mm or 8mm square notch depending on the condition of the wall, which will give you 3 or 4mm finished adhesive thickness respectively.

    2100 wall with an 1800 bath, so I'm putting in a bath alcove (stud/Aquapanel) to get the bath in the ctr of the wall whilst squaring the walls up and creating a void for hiding/fitting services).

    6mm notch should be ok, for 10mm total combined tile/adhesive thickness.

    Sorry to jump in here but I'm also looking for a notched tiling trowel, for wall tiles, so, a 6mm/8mm notch should be fine.

    Thanks.
