This product is designed to repair cracks in Plaster or Drywall walls and ceilings. Plus it will repair both inside & outside corner damage, as well as drywall joints. For stress cracks you simply need to wipe off the damaged area, make sure that nothing is protruding, peel off the backing while applying the Stress Crack Tape at the same time, pressing outside of the damaged area, cut to size, then paint. For a perfect match to your wall surface, you can skim the edges or texture. For use on joints, you simply need to apply over the joint, then apply joint compound. No more need to apply large amounts of joint compound prior to taping. For corners simply crease in the desired direction prior to removing the backing. The feathered edges of this product helps the patches blend into the surrounding wall surface.

  • Self adhesive lower surface
  • Paint ready upper surface
  • Strong flexible patented material
  • Uneven feathered edges blend into wall or ceiling
  • Product is very thin, at 3.7 mils it is less than 1/10 of a milimeter
  • Not for popcorn, knockdown, or sanded surfaces
  • Made in the USA

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! It is amazing how this tape seems to nearly dissappear after being painted. Our walls and ceilings are old plaster and I had to use a lot of tape! Most people don't notice the tape until I point it out. April 14, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by good product Very simple to apply and use… just make sure the surface is clean before applying. No issue as of yet… December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crack repair tape will ssave time and effort Having repaired many cracks in old plaster in our 1884 house over the years, I can honestly say that this tape is an idea that's long overdue. A recent repainting would have involved about 6-8 hours of taping and patching to get the area ready for painting. With the repair tape and skim coating, plus a very little sanding, I got better-than-expected results in a little over an hour. Great stuff! February 15, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too bad it did not work for me Too bad it did not work for me. Over several days, I tried to make it work but I gave up and went back to fiber tape. I have been a high-end Handyman for 16 years. January 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product reduces time needed to make repairs and gives great results I manage the maintenance for a small office building and stress cracks occur at many of the windows throughout the building. With a little clean up of loose drywall the Stress Crack Tape covers hair line cracks wonderfully. Adhesion is excellent. The strength of the tape is surprisingly strong. The tape itself is very thin and requires very little spackling and sanding. I can see that in some applications it would not be necessary to spackle. February 21, 2012
