This float is extruded from very hard, durable, lightweight magnesium and has a comfortable handle that is positioned to give the tool perfect balance. The handles are secured with torque pad screws that will not back out. This tool is recommended for use with air entrained concrete. Magnesium floats produce a smoother finish than wood. The resilient DuraSoftÂ® handle provides a soft feel, reduces fatigue and offers excellent durability.
