Answer: 
Yes - this product is called "Perfect Finish" because it has a unique woven design that makes it 33% thinner than standard mesh tapes. Although the tape is self-adhesive, you still need to mudd over the tape to finish your joints or patch holes. Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My contractors favorite Every time we do drywall thisis whatmy guys ask for. Good quality product that is easy to work with. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tape! Great tape for the price. I use it all of the time. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Went on without issue. The mesh tape worked perfectly. The only problem was a single strand came off the end and unraveled, once i trimmed it we were in business. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by use it all the time I've been using this thinner fibatape for years. Great and I do all inside corners, and joints w this and rarely if ever get a ghost crack. Works well for repairing cracks in plaster and skimming over since it is thin. I know the pros use paper but I always use this since I dyi learned on it. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dry wall mesh tape The I bought tape worked great, I would buy it again May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the do-it-your-selfer thin enough to be applied in numerous applications and strong enough as well. It worked well in corners as well as the usual joint applications. May 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Super Thin Mesh Drywall Tape I used mesh type tape before but it was more thicker. This fiber mesh tape is really thin only 0.21 thick. I like the mesh type tape because not being a professional drywall installer/mudder, sometime you don't get enough mud behind the paper drywall tape it will bubble when you paint it or it slips on when you put the trowel on it. With the adhesive backing on the mesh you don't have the problem with it moving. Also being mesh you know you got all the mud covering over the joint. I did have issue on a couple of times the edges, the strands become loose so I had to pull it off. Overall I happy with the result. Good product! February 4, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by edges of the tape fray and string on you I've used the mold and mildew, cement board and now the perfect finish thin version. The products i like a lot better then paper tape. With the first two no issues with edges fraying or stringing however with this thin stuff its happening a lot. If you don't catch it and cut it off you might have finishing issues. I do love the products but this is definitely an issue on these thin tape rolls. March 29, 2016
