Fibrafuse


Not to be confused with Fibra tape. I just googled Lowe's drywall tape and see they are carrying the new fibrafuse paperless drywall tape. To all the drywall guys out there try this stuff it is great. I don't want to say to much till I hear what you think, but this stuff makes taping a lot easier. And if you need to skim a rough wall it comes in rolls 36" wide. Plus it can be used in corners and on your angles, And as the name implies it is totally paperless. On Drywall talk a lot of the big companies are going from paper tape to only this stuff. Let me know what you think.

I really don't want to say much about it till a few try it. It's a fairly new product and was kind of hard to find that's why most haven't heard of it.

Fibrafuse


i seen it come out a while ago and ive been waiting for the local stores to start carrying it probably wont be here for a while. from different reviews online is that guys really like it but on inside corners you can easily cut it with you knife.

Great for flat joints, but tears easily, when doing corners. I hear it will also leave fiberglass splinters in your hands. Other than that, I've read a lot of positive reviews on various drywall formus.

well since I'll be taping soon I ordered it off of lowe's website. I could have got 500ft off amazon with amazon prime for $16, but I opted with 1000ft from lowe's for $16.

Yes there is a small learning curve for in the corners so you don't cut it with your knife. Haven't really had the problem with fiberglass splinters. In my opinion it's worth taking a little bit of time to work with, but you will have to judge that for yourself after you use a roll.

well I unfortunately won't be able to test it. manufacture will only send boxes of 10 to lowe's and since I only ordered 4 I don't meet that criteria and they canceled the order. Oh well, I guess paper tape it is.

What makes this better/different than other types of tape? What are the claimed benefits of using it?

EDIT: Checked HD's site.

  • Fibafuse is porous allowing the joint compound to become part of the tape for a stonger bond
  • Fibafuse is mold resistant scoring a perfect 10 rating on ASTM D3273 mold test
  • Fibafuse crack strength is 76 percent stronger than paper tape
  • Fibafuse is 62 percent lighter than paper tape
