Rated 3 out of 5Â by TomL Works on outside, plastic corners. No issues
I've not used this on inside or on paper corners. Only outside, plastic corner bead. I've had no failures of the corners in rooms now in service for 4-plus months (as of late 10/2011). I apply a liberal coat of the adhesive, making sure to allow a full tack to develop. Applying it too wet, or not allowing the tack to develop, is asking for problems. Also, don't coat the cornerbead with mud until the adhesive has had a good amount of time to dry. The instructions say 30 minutes, but I normally let it go at least an hour - overnight if I'm able. It's worked well enough for me that I'm going to get a few more cans for the next phase of this project.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by topcat101 Anything worth doing is worth doing right...
I continue to use this product for not only inside and outside corners (plastic) but also with perforated paper tape on small repairs.. Countless jobs with absolutely NO problems..
But, 3 things must absolutely be done...
Apply ample product completely to BOTH surfaces..
Allow the product to tack off before applying the bead to the wall..
A MINIMUM of 1-2 hours dry time before applying mud... (the more time the better)
If these steps are not followed you will have the same problems as the other one star reviews on this page...

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mike Don't waste your money on this lack luster product
In order for this product to work you have to use a ton of it and it will cost you a small fortune for the amount you have to use. Don't waste your time. I tried using what I thought was enough and it wasn't enough and eventually I had to add more when the adhesive let loose.
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DIY30 Prepair to do it all again
I've always trusted the 3M Brand until I bought this product. I bought a couple corner beads and one can of the adhesive to try it out. It worked GREAT! so I went back to the store and bough 5 more cans and $150 worth of corner bead to finish my entire basement. Again everything went up great! So I continued onto mudding... and then painting. Looked great, All until 1 month later when the adhesive breaks loose. Now I have air bubbles under the mud EVERYWHERE. Corner bead is even falling off of the ceiling!!!!! I've had to staple sections up just to keep them from falling more until I can fix it. Now I have to spend 3x the work and $$ to take it down do it all over agian the old fashioned way. TERRIBLE PRODUCT!!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Wolfatrest I will never use it again.
I recently used this product in finishing a basement. Yes, a full basement. I was initially impressed with how well it worked and how much faster than the old spackle, apply corner bead and spackle some more method. Then, when the owner of the basement started painting, the adhesive quickly began to fail. I am now repairing every inside corner of a basement that has LOTS of inside corners. The only place the stuff even attempted to work was where I had thought that I used about 3 times too much adhesive. Stick with the old fashioned spackle method, in the end, it will save you tons of time and aggravation.
