TYPES AND SPECIFICATIONS
This original patented double-edged design of the Scraperite plastic blade is best for corner access and straight line scraping. It is the workhorse of the line, the plastic blades series that helped build the brand and remains a key tool in many applications.
Corners of the blade protrude quite significantly when used with the Tradesman series holder providing great corner access and reach into recessed areas like the inside corners of window frames. Blade fits Lil'Gripper, BigGripper, Tradesman Series Holders and many standard metal No.9 and No.12 blade safety holders. Right angled corners could cause injury with certain blade types.
The Standard Rectangle blade is made in all compositions. Available packaging and item codes are listed on the Blade Packaging page.
SPECIALTY CURVED BLADE - CURVEY™
CURVEY is THE ultimate Plastic Safety Scraper
The curved plastic blade increases several safety factors by virtually eliminating sharp corners. This is the ideal safety scraper for any application and would probably be a buyer's first choice, unless sharp corners are required for the job. This blade only fits Tradesman Series Holders.
Perfect for use on concave surfaces or where rotating action is most effective. By using a rotating action with the wrist, the user can successfully lift stickers, grime, and dirt easily with targeted accuracy. Using the flexibility of the blade, the width of the blade touching the surface can be controlled by varying the pressure. This feature gives more accurate control of coverage on every stroke.
This blade is not made in the Yellow HYL compound, the material is too brittle and blades break too easily. We are working to develop new engineered materials to offer a rigid blade with similar hardness. The curved is more rigid than the rectangle blade by design and one of the current materials may achieve similar results. It is recommended buyers test the new blades to determine effectiveness while we remain open to feedback and wish list.
4 inch/10 cm WIDE PLASTIC BLADE
With 10 centimeter (4 inch) reach, this blade offers nearly 3 times the coverage area per stroke as our other blades. It is also nearly twice as thick as the standard original blade to achieve faster workflow with safe effective performance. The thickness makes the blade tougher, able to withstand repeated use and cover wide areas before requiring replacement.
Customer feedback tells us this blade is used to remove vinyl letters and residue from large surfaces in the sign making industry. Buyers in the plastic paint protection film business use it to prepare a surface and when replacement is required, often on RVs, buses, and other large surfaces.
This blade is also extensively used in the marine sector to clean directly on gelcoat, fiberglass, stainless steel, plastics, and other surfaces. It is extremely effective at removing barnacles on vessels. Far more effective than scrubbing pads by targeting the marine life at the surface of the vessel and lifting it up and away from the surface. The softer material ensures less risk of damage to antifouling paint and fittings as compared to metal scrapers. Paired with the W4 holder, the tool floats!
The Yellow HYL material is not provided in this material as a standard product. An alternate compound is in development.

This blade was used in the barnacle removal video, it did most of the work and was never flipped.
