FibaTape® Introduces New Composite Corner Tape
(Grand Island, NY) - The world's leading drywall finishing products brand, FibaTape®, has added a new corner tape to its line. The new FibaTape Composite Corner tape is made of a highly durable PVC, coated with a tight-fibered matrix. The composite corner tape forms easily and features a fold line ("recess") down the center of the tape allowing it to fold quickly and become adjustable to any angle for straight, durable and professional corners and angles. The new corner tape is easy to use and remains rigid, yet flexible, even when wet. FibaTape Composite Corner Tape provides contractors the professional results they expect and DIYers professional quality in an easy-to-use product.
The benefits of using FibaTape® Composite Corner Tape include:
Easy to install using standard compounds. No nailing, adhesive, special tools or fasteners are required.
Ideal for inside or outside corners and off angles. It is easily adjusted for any angle while still providing crisp corners.
Resists dents, paint chipping, shrinkage and cracking problems that are common with paper tape.
Waterproof and rustproof.
Straightens common framing irregularities for vertical off angles.
Tape features holes to promote quick drying and better bonding.
Since the tape promotes quick drying, it can be second coated immediately and only requires a very light finish coat. This can easily save 25-50% on installation time!
The new composite corner tape joins a much larger offering of corner tapes from FibaTape. With an existing corner tape family that includes metal reinforced paper corner tape and flexible PVC corner tape, the composite tape is a natural fit to round out the product line. All the corner tapes available from FibaTape are great for professionals and DIYers.
FibaTape composite corner tape is available in 2-3/8" x 25' and 50' rolls. Each roll is packaged in a convenient dispenser box, and shipped 6 each per case.
