Re: Coating NO COAT


there's a product called mid flex, it should be the product that's called no-coat. your could probably finish this product with a nail spotter, but we don't. The no-coat takes way more mud. But I'm talking 45 degree inside angles.

Guess we can finally get the pre-cut no-coat, but it's still too much $$$$$$.

Are you talking no-coat on beads or 45's (maybe a dumb ??)

mid-flex straight flex ,,, same thing ,, I don't trust either one. even still they both have to be leveled out after application . the print side is slick.. The white side has a fuzz to it , always apply print side out.then x your fingers.,,,, and hope for the best...

IMO, the no-coat on the bead, would work with the boxes, they take a lot less mud, and I can see the no-coat being the #1 bead world wide one day.

The no-coat is the only bead I would experiment with using boxes, from what I seen on you tube. Don't think I would be keen on doing the forty fives that way. to me putting the 45's on is the pain,not coating them so.......

No no no, straight flex is a garbage product, no-coat and mid flex are Kick a$$ products, there's lots of old post about this on here.
