No you do not, the tape has adhesive that should stick to your surface. However if the tape doesn't stick you can put down a thin skim coat to help the tape adheir to the surface your working on.

Can this be used on other materials? Like sound board for instance.

Asked by jay January 3, 2017

Answers

Yes but it depends on the finishing system you are using. You need to consult the manufacturer of the sound bord you are using for their recommendations on a joint finishing system for your particular product.

I want to know what is the difference between the tape for seetrock and tape of fiber for chirroc which is the best.

I would only use this on inside corners. Outside corners need to be more durable so I would use metal corner bead.

Great tape!
Great tape for the price. I use it all of the time.

Easy Enough to Use
Easy enough to use - no un-threading at the edges when pulling off a length, sticks when you put it on and stays there enough until you get some mud on - feels thin - I don't recall having to go over it multiple times to hide it. I had a small patch job - from pulling out a closet - rather than putting up sheets of dry wall.

Applies easily, very thin and can be repositioned
I have never before attempted to repair anything larger than a 1" hole in wallboard so I am by no means experienced in this particular DIY project. My project was to repair two sections of sheetrock that had been cut out of the master closet wall by the former owner of my house. The two sections, each measuring 12x18", had been removed to access plumbing pipes for the master shower. The prior owner set the pieces back in place in the wall but then used masking tape to hold them in place in case the problem with the pipes recurred. Nothing has happened since we've owned the house, so I decided to permanently repair the sheetrock and then repaint the closet wall. I researched various products and decided on this Perfect Finish mesh drywall tape because it is self-adhesive and very thin. Very thin is a plus in one regard, because it's easier to cover up the tape edges with drywall compound, but I realized after using the tape on the first section that the thinness didn't hide the cut lines well enough for my taste, so on the second section I applied a double layer of tape. I already had Dap DryDex Spackling in my tool box , so rather than purchase drywall joint compound, I decided to use the spackling. Since I've never used joint compound, I don't know how much easier it would have made my task, but the spackling worked. The plastic wrapping on the roll of tape contained only four small drawings as instructions on how to use the product, along with a company web address for further information. I went to the website and found not only a larger set of drawings with printed instructions (which were easy to read and understand) but the company had also posted a 2 minute video showing someone using the mesh drywall tape and demonstrating the technique for using drywall compound. The advice in the video was very helpful. The tape comes in a 300 ft roll and since I only used about 10 feet, I have an enormous amount left over. In hindsight, for this size DIY project, I should have gotten the smaller roll. I think I will be able to repair small wallboard issues for the next 25 years using this one roll. When I opened the package of tape, I was completely unable to find the end of the tape. I used a box cutter to cut across the tape, started it there and hoped to find the end in the process of unrolling what I'd cut. Unfortunately that didn't work, so I had to again run my fingernail around the roll numerous time and finally I found the start of the tape. As I pulled the tape off the roll, some strings separated at the tape edge and it took 3 turns around the roll before that stopped. Not a big deal, just a bit annoying. It would be nice if the manufacturer place a small bit of something under the tape end so that starting the roll would be a quick process instead of a frustrating one. The tape adheres very easily to wallboard, and if for some reason you didn't apply it quite in the position you wanted the first time, you can lift it off and reposition. Once I had all four sides of my piece of wallboard taped, using a 2" wide spackle tool, I spread a thin layer of DryDex spackling all over the tape, being sure to press it through the weave of the tape and feathering out the edges. Once it dried, I lightly sanded off the rough spots and then applied a second coat of spackling, this time using broader margins around the tape so that when I paint, any bumps from the line where the wallboard was cut will be less noticeable. The edges of the tape are not at all noticeable under my two coats of spackle, but the spackle was applied thicker on the tape in order to adequately cover up the wallboard cuts, so the spackle on the tape is taking much longer to dry (already into hour three and probably still has another two to go before it's completely dry). I haven't yet painted my wall, but based on how it looks after the second coat of spackle, I don't think the repair work will be noticed, unless you know it's there. Success!

Tape works fine for flat joints, but is difficult to us in corner joints. Self adhesive is kinda true, but you have to follow up with mud immediately or it will drop off.
