A: Steve Thank you for your inquiry. Sheetrock Paper Joint Tape is not self adhesive. Apply an even coat of thinned joint compound along the length of the joint with a 5" finishing knife. Center and lightly press tape into wet joint compound with fingers. Draw 5" knife firmly along joint to tightly embed tape. Be sure there is sufficient joint compound under tape to prevent blistering of the tape. While embedding the tape, remove excess joint compound from edge and apply as a thin coat over the tape. Hope this helps.
A: You need to dunk the tape strips in a bucket of water and apply wet
A: while it says "self adhesive" it has zero adhesive the description is wrong. While dry wall "tape" may not normally have adhesive, my expectation was also this was a tape with "self-adhesive". @homedepot should correct this.
A: Drywall tape is not actually “tape”. It does not stick (at least this product - some mesh tape is sticky) You out done a layer of mud then embed the tape in the mud. Google drywall techniques for more information
A: There are two types of joint tape adhesive and non adhesive. You have the non adhesive tape, meaning there is not glue on the back side of the tape. The proper procedure is the apply the drywall mud to the seam, then apply the tape pressing it into the mud, using a drywall knife. After the original application is smooth and dry, two additional layers of mud should be applied to finish the joint, making each additional layer wider than the last to blend the mud to the existing drywall.

A: Wow, just when I thought I heard it all....Joint compound tape is adhered with joint compound. Put a thin layer on the joint, then stick the tape to the compound. Compound over the tape until smooth. When dry, sand and repeat until even and smooth.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. Sheetrock Paper Joint Tape is applied using joint compound. Cover joint with a thin layer of compound and embed paper joint tape, leaving about 1/32" (0.7 mm) of compound under feathered edge. While embedding the tape, remove excess compound from edge and apply a thin coat over the tape. Let dry and sand lightly as required. Apply second coat, feathering approximately 2" (50 mm) beyond fi rst coat. Let dry, sand lightly as required and then apply third coat, feathering 2" (50 mm) beyond second coat. Sand lightly as required when dry. Finish fastener heads, corner bead and inside corners as required with at least three coats of joint compound, feathered out onto panel faces and sanded as required to a smooth surface. You will need to remove the existing staples and tape; then reapply using joint compound.
A: The first thing I would ask is did you apply a thin coat of drywall compound over the joint before applying the tape? There’s also a micro groove in the center of the tape that one side has a “ridge” and the opposite side has a groove. The groove is always facing “up” so when you apply the compound and then the tape after the first coat is applied correctly and allowed to fully dry then the groove will have “shrunk” properly with the compound. The age of the tape usually doesn’t have an impact on its ability to work properly. If the tape didn’t “stick” it’s likely that there wasn’t enough compound applied and then the tape applied. The proper technique is : 1) apply approximately 1/4”-3/8” thick joint compound to the joint 2) apply the tape to the joint compound in one continuous piece if possible. 3) take a drywall knife 4”-6” wide and “wipe” down the tape over the joint leaving a smooth appearance My concern of just “removing” the staples would be the possibility of bubbles under the tape that will cause the tape to peel off the joint. If the tape is tight or secure to the substrate then you could remove the staples and continue to apply additional coats of compound to the joint or seam.

A: Garrett Thank you for your inquiry. Sheetrock Paper Drywall Tape is not self-adhesive. We apologize for the confusion. It is adhered by embedding it in a layer of Sheetrock Joint Compound. Hope this helps.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. Repeated cracking is often the result of movement. If not addressed the cracking will continue to reappear. Cracks, whether from repair of sagging or bulged plaster (above) or from other causes are repaired and reinforced using Sheetrock® brand paper joint tape embedded in Sheetrock® brand setting-type joint compound (Durabond® 45 or 90). Hope this helps.
