Tech/Engineering / thermal insulation materials, construction market
German term or phrase: Zahnspachtel
Thermal insulation composite systems, mineral wool mats, microcements and mortars used as reinforcement, construction sites:

Diese Oberflächen-verstärkungen haben im Vergleich zu den Elementarfasern eine Größe, die als relativ grobkörnig bezeichnet werden kann. Zum Einarbeiten dieser Oberflächenverstärkungen sind Zahnspachtel, Reiben oder dergleichen bekannt. Diese in der Regel manuelle Bearbeitung stellt auf Baustellen eine aufwendige und damit teure Arbeit dar.

I don't know how "Zahnspachtel" fits here and how it would translate into English
