Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jiminimal This is great - why did I ever use the screw on corner bead?
This was my first time using the paper faced corner bead and I wish I had tried it out sooner. It was super easy to install (thanks youtube!) and I didn't have to worry about kinking it by accidentally over-tightening a screw - which I have done on occasion with the screw on bead. Seems pretty sturdy and was easy to align. A+ all around.

The person above rating it as a 1 didnt use it properly. You should mud the corners first. Moisten the bead with water... place it on the joint and use the taping knife to squeeze out mud... use that mud that you squeezed on the top of the joint... use a small framing square to square up the outdise corner bead. I finished an entire basement using this product and didnt have not one issue!

I recently tried this product, having used the mechanically fastened corner bead in the past. I found this much easier to use, with a better looking result. I had several runs which were over 10' and was able to match up the bead perfectly - something I could never do very well with the mechanically fastened bead. Fortunately I've always moistened paper tape before application which I now see in other reviews is the key to better results. I also add more water to the mud.

It seems like the paper is not adhered properly to the metal corner bead because small air bubbles pop out when you apply compound to it. And it is not an application problem because it is a line of uniform bubbles that occurs between the paper and the metal not the paper and the compound. I'm going to try to get my money back because you have to slice all of the bubbles out, a huge and time consuming job especially for something that is supposed to save me time.

I know that this is supposed to be put up with a layer of mud and it is tacky with water ... I used the 3m supper 77 spray adhesive and it worked great .also I think it's a little thicker gauge metal than the standard corner bead

I really liked using this bead, was faster then using paper, and gives you an chance to put outside layer of mud at the same time. Less involved then metal one, no screws/nails required, but same angle protection.
It fits very nicely into tapered end of dry wall.
