Non-adhesive fiberglass tape (also called drywall joint tape) is made of fiberglass mat/tissue. It's the most ideal material for cracks repairing on the drywall, and joints strengthening on the ceilings, gypsum boards, etc. Comparing to the paper tape which is widely used on the market, it's much easier to use, no bubbles or blisters, and can be applied directly to the wall surface without pre-embeddaing required. Its tensile strength is up to 400N/50mm which is much stronger than paper tape. Furthermore, it's non-organic, mold-resistant, long durability, which prevents the possible break that happens to paper tape after 3-5 years.
Fiberglass tape is ideal for patching holes in drywall as well as a paper tape substitute. Before using fiberglass tape, you'll want to know these tips on how to get the best resultsa
Fiberglass tape is easier to use than paper tape. Paper tape needs to be pressed into a layer of compound and the excess compound removed. The trick is that you must remove surplus compound without wrinkling the tape or removing so much that the tape buckles because you've created dry spots. Faced with all of those paper tape challenges, you'll probably agree that fiberglass tape is worth its extra cost.
Be sure you keep a sharp utility knife blade available to cut fiberglass tape. A dull blade will merely skip over the fabric or snag the threads. If you're tackling a big project, consider getting a tape dispenser. It's a speedy helper for both flat seams and inside corners. Below, we show you how to effectively use fiberglass tape.
Fiberglass Tape With Finished Edges – No Stretch or Shrink
Fiberglass tape refer to a narrow fiberglass strip with finished edges. According to different production process, fiberglass tape can be divided into three types: fiberglass filament tape, fiberglass mesh tape and fiberglass cloth tape. It is repositionable for strong, fast and easy to use. Each product has non-raveling edges for a clean, professional-looking appearance.
Use fiberglass tape for reinforcing seams and corners when jointing plaster plates, mending drywall racks, piecing together. Sometimes it can be used over epoxy fillets on plywood stitch and glue boats. Our products make them join faster, adhesive better and need not pasting or stapling. It is not be easily torn, shrunk and stretched.
Wall must be clean and dry;
Center and apply tape over the length of the joint and pressing firmly;
Apply a generous first coat of compound over the tape and through the mesh, making sure to completely fill the joint crevice. When the joint has been completely filled, wipe off any excess compound with the drywall knife leaving enough to cover the tape;
Let dry completely, then sand slightly;
Apply sufficient thin finishing coats to produce a smooth wall surface;
Cut of butted boards do not have a tapered edge. Therefore, special care must be taken to assure proper compound penetration of all joints. This may result in slight build-up of compound that will require an increased amount of edge feathering.
