Product Overview

Crack-Tape repairs difficult cracks on flat surfaces and corners. Ten times stronger than paper tape, the tape repairs stress cracks and cracks due to truss uplifts. Crack-Tape cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors, but also resists blisters, tears, shrinkage, and wrinkles. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material, it can be used for finishing drywall in high humidity applications. To apply measure and cut to length, then fold in half for corners. Apply all-purpose compound to surface or corner. Press Crack-Tape into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line, and wipe down with a taping knife. A second coat can be applied immediately. Let dry. Apply a light skim coat, let dry, and sand.

Answer

No, crack tape is super thick so not for this application. You should caulk the seams of panelling with paintable caulk. That will be able to handle the growth and shrinkage of the panelling in different humidity levels and not crack. Always chalk between joints of two surfaces rather than using something that dries rigid as there is always movement between them.

Paint with primer should work well and cover. The lettering will show if the mud is thin in that spot.

Is crack tape useful on sagging drywall bathroom ceiling?

Asked by DIY2girl January 18, 2020

Answers

No. If you have sagging then you have moisture on the back side of the drywall, maybe a roof or plumbing leak from above. You need to remove the sagging drywall and should replace with water resistant board....but investigate how it got wet and fix the issue if not already fixed.

Can this be used on plywood in addition to drywall?

Asked by Denise January 14, 2018

Answers

Well, because the tape is very thick, I cut the paper and a bit of the gypsum off the drywall where I applied it to embed it at surface level. So with plywood, it would be visible unless you remove some surface too, like one ply of the plywood layers. You could route it out. I wouldn't do this on a thin plywood, but 1/2 inch and thicker could handle it.

Thanks Dora. Yes, the Crack Tape should work fine for repairs on all wall cracks. The tape is made of pvc with cotton and wool on it. Here is what the MSDS says about the product. (This mixture has not been evaluated as a whole. This product is not expected to produce any unusual hazards during normal use. All ingredients are bound and potential for hazardous exposure as shipped is minimal. No significant hazards are associated with this product. Toxic fumes may be released in fire situations.)

Strait-flex corner tape

Asked by gitfiddle February 5, 2016

The corner tape is a better choice since it is designed for corners, i.e. straight corners, so I suspect you will need to cut 'Vs' along tape on one side to fit curve.

Strong and holds up! I used this on a joint between a support beam and the wall that had quite a large settling crack. I wanted something that could hold up and this was perfect. It's thick and strong and the holes throughout help it to adhere very well. Before the actual application, I dry-fitted it into place, wrapping it around the inside corner, and then traced its perimeter onto the wall. Then I took it off and chiseled out a layer of the wall surface under where it will be embedded, because the crack tape is thick and I wanted it to sit flush with the surrounding wall. Then I generously applied drywall compound to the crack and area and pressed the crack tape firmly into the mud and ensured it came through all the holes for strong adhesion. Then I smoothed compound over the surface and got a nice smooth finish. I did this patch 2 years ago now and it's still solid, no new crack. Good stuff!!!

(What's this)
I'm not a professional drywall tradesman by any stretch of the imagination, but the pictures tell a pretty good story. The tape on the wall behind my wood stove started drying out and literally was coming off the wall. In some areas, where it wasn't coming off there were stress cracks. Prepared the wall for taping, used a utility knife to make 90 degree angles to the tape, cut the tape with scissors for the parts over the hallway and the wall. Sanded the area to be spackled, then went to work. The tape is moderately thicker than the basic tape and has holes to strengthen the mud when applying to the wall. It took three coats of spackle, one before applying the tape, the second one for covering the tape and the third applying the final coat on the following day. There was an area that needed a patch not knowing what to expect I cut 2 pieces and fixed them side by side, spackled as in the previous paragraph and was surprised at the results. Of course, there is a slight bulge on the wall, but it blends in pretty good. Next step painting so all the flaws can surface, hopefully not.

I rarely use ordinary paper tape these days, preferring mesh tape for my projects so thought I'd try Strait-Flex's Crack-Tape. The product is thicker than mesh and the box reads is ten times stronger than paper or mesh tape. Its a composite material with a slight textured feel. Its also scored down the middle for using in corners. The advantage of the product is it allows you to apply the skim coat immediately after affixing it to the wall after first laying a bed of joint compound to hold it. Its strength is really ideal for persistent stress crack applications. I applied it to an inside closet corner crack that refused to stay closed. No problems, went up the same way mesh tape would and the stiffness kept it from scrunching up as can happen with mesh or paper. The compound squeezes up from the holes in the tape to give a secure bond. Here I was only trying to cover the crack inside the closet not looking for pretty, but it set up nicely. Well see if it holds, but it does seem stronger.
