Is this forum dead? Whats new in the drywall world?


what are you all using thats new?

any new trowels ? knives?

fiba fuse? mesh ? paper ?


metal corners from tee old times or up to date with trim tex?

even though getting trim tex products is a pain in the ass, their social media presence is AWFUL


how do u even find a divergent stapler ? trim tex tells u to use it, i search google/ amazon and dont see **** anywhere

Hey Shack! I've been using the Beroxpert/Trim Tex smoothing blades for skim coating and other things.
They are expensive, but wonderful!
I use Fibafuse quite often and really like that too.
When I install Trim Tex beads, I just use regular staples now because I can no longer get divergent staples. I haven't had any fail, but that doesn't mean they are as good either. I always spray glue on the wall and the bead, then press them in place and staple them tight.

Re: Is this forum dead? Whats new in the drywall world?


ive used trim tex beadds for years and only had it fail once

whats the point of staples if they arent divergent ?! does it grab the drywall at all ?

i know sometimes a little section of the corner bead/any type of trim tex bead WONT stick at all even tho i spray glue on the drywall and the bead itself, maybe the staples help there holding it on consistently

i use fiba fuse for butt joints and mesh in the stamped joints , usually paper for corners

durabond and then machine mud
