I started putting on corner bead and I initially started with paper faced metal corner bead. It worked well but after putting on a second coat an lightly sanding I must have hit the corner a bit too much with sandpaper (I hardly did anything) but the paper on the edge peeled. It's a extremely thin strip of paper but I am a little concerned. Probably should just put some more mud on and then prime it...but it got me thinking...how easy is it to remove this corner bead? Can I just sand down to the paper itself and pull? Like I said, I probably don't need to fix this but I just would like to know.

I plan on using no-coat ultraflex on all my future corners. I used it on some 135 degree outer areas and so far its been very very nice.

Ultraflex is good stuff, but I wouldn't remove a dried corner at all. Just carefully mud over it, or cut out the offending booger and mud over it all. Nothing substantial will happen if you don't change it out.
