Hello -
If you are using hardi board, are you using thinset with it? If so, you can only use cement board tape. It’s the only one with alkali resistance – all of our other tapes are not and the thinset would eat through any fiberglass mesh without an alkali-resistant coating.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pre hung doors Tape was fine however, the doors I purchased were poor quality regarding hinges. Caused delays, had to re drill. I have pictures if you are interested. Also had to trim insulation so doors would close. April 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easier to use than paper. Its very easy to use once you find the start of the roll. April 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Use it with on all my personal sheetrock jobs Just completed a sheetrock job and used this on all the seams from wall to ceiling. The self-adhesive feature holds the tape in place, even on the ceiling, allowing me enough time to apply the mud. Cuts easily with a knife or scissors. Can sometimes loose the end of it on the roll so I will often fold it back on itself between uses. October 5, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bring back the previous tape HD has changed product lines again. This Fiba Tape is about as bad as its forerunners were in the 80s. The packaging it not the easiest to get into, once you do, finding the end of the tape is nearly impossible. When the end is found and you try to tape with this tape the side unravels and forms a mess on one end, the tape is flimsy and the adhesive is not very tacky. HD go back the product line of mesh tape you were selling a year ago it was far superior. Taped a closet, threw out the leftover tape. September 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not stick well. Edges are ragged. Edges catch on trowel. Does not stick well. Edges are ragged. Edges catch on trowel. October 15, 2015

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dry wall tape sometimes more difficult to cover with mud than other tape, but otherwise an easy to use product. February 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NIGHTMARE down the road. NEVER USE MESH TAPE Seemed to work great when doing job but months down the road, all the joints where this take was used are cracked. The joints that I used paper have held up. I feel like a massive amount of hard work was for nothing. Totally stressed out. WHY DID JOINTS CRACK??????? I've done many drywall jobs and never had this problem till using mesh tape. NEVER EVER AGAIN. October 15, 2014
