The manufacturer cautions against using any "lightweight" joint compound for the first coat and states that, other than that prohibition, any taping or setting compound is fine to use with its FIBA mesh tape.
I wouldn't recommend it. I had trouble using it to repair a wall were I could reach both ends. I had to hold it in place and apply joint compound to get it to stay adhered. I can envision all sorts of problems trying to do this on a ceiling!!!
Yes, but if your structure is under changing forces (resettling/seasonal), you'll have cracks. Paper is a better option in this case
Yes, this tape can be used to seal small holes in walls.
You'll better use the grey tape which was made for cement work
This is drywall tape. You use this on the seams between drywall pieces. Then you out joint compound over it and sand it down. After that. Yes you can paint it
As a bit of friendly advice, you need a little more education before attempting to do drywall. You must always apply at least 2 coats of " mud"(compound) over any tape. You must learn what purpose the tape serves,and why joint compound is used, in order to get successful results in this work. Best of luck in this new endeavor!
Did not use for this application
If the cracks are forming where two pieces of dry-wall were mudded over then yes, be sure to scrap all the old mud compound off.
You could but has very little adhesive capabilities. The mesh is really thin/light.
