Questions & Answers

Can this tape be used with the Redguard water proofing membrane ?

Asked by: degenerate
Yes. Tape the Durock joints and fill the joints with Thinset mortar just like you would fill drywall joints with drywall compound. Do not use drywall compound or mastic with cement board. After this dries for 24 hours, place a minimum of 2 coats of Redgard onto the joints and all exposed face of the Durock (cement board).

Do I use a thinset to put tape on? Do I use a thinset to cover tape after it is applied? Want to use it in a new planned shower.

Asked by: Marilyn
I would use Custom Building Products VersaBond 50 lb. Fortified Thin-Set Mortar either gray or white depending on color grout. Using ALL custom products they back their product no matter what as long as all the custom products are used. Ask a sales associate to explain that to you. Put the product on first to embed the tape and then once or twice over to cover the tape. I always put !00% silicone caulk in the joints before the thin-set to ensure water penetration in case it gets through the grout and then the seam behind it. Have not had a problem yet. Best of luck to you.

Is this tape flammable?

We have air ducts separating about an inch apart and I was told to get fiber glass tape and "paint" mastic over the fiberglass tape to seal the holes... can any one give me some advice on this?? I am only concerned if during the winter when I turn on the heater will the tape cause any issues??
Asked by: Jakel
Alkali-Resistant Self-Adhesive Mesh Cement Board Tape is not flammable and is commonly used on air ducts under mastic.

Can I use to seam Sheetrock and durock at bottom in a basement that sometimes floods.

If it appears I don't know what I'm talking that's because I don't. But any answer will be helpful. In tired of cutting water damaged Sheetrock away. Thanks
Asked by: micki
You can use cement board for this application, however this is not waterproof and will not prevent water from getting underneath. This tape does resist mold and mildew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly easy to work with - does inside and outside corners with ease. Two thumbs up. Just remodeled our bathroom and made a shower niche with backer board. I used this self adhesive cement board tape to reinforce the inside and outside corners of the niche along with the seams of the backer board. Amazed at how easy it is to work with, sticks and stays put and even stayed put on inside and outside corners. We cut it with scissors and applied the thinset as soon as we'd finished taping the joints. There was no sign of the tape losing adhesion although the instructions recommend that you don't leave an unsealed taped joint too long before applying the thinset otherwise the adhesive bond can break down. Once the thinset was set, we applied a waterproof membrane to the shower niche and the whole job was very easy.
