Why does the tape show through after I sand each coat of joint compound?

Asked by Arty February 8, 2015
5
Answers

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.

Will this tape work to repair a place where the tape has come loose at the ceiling line?

Answers

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!!!

What joint compound should I use for my first coat? I've read that mesh tape is prone to crackin...

Yes, but if your structure is under changing forces (resettling/seasonal), you'll have cracks. Paper is a better option in this case

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

after applying the self adhesive drywall joint tape , can I paint it directly or should I add one coat of plaster before painting? thanks a lot

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!

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.

This tape was easy to use. I don't do drywall but I was able to figure this out. The tape peels easy and is easy to apply to the wall. Could have been a better experience. I have used other brands and they were difficult to use. they didn't stick well and it ended up making for a difficult project. Would recommend this product for drywall projects.

back to paper tape
Junk. 3 joints in ceiling 2 have hairline cracks the full length 12'. Noticed first the day after paint, second a week later. Usg has a video out saying mesh fiberglass can not with stand panel shift, and paper tape is superior.
