Sheetrock plastic-lined paper bead


Got a sample stick in a box of paper bead today. This is what's left of it after I tried it. Had a weird flex to it when wiping it down during installation. Looks like it might "hump" a little easier than paper with metal. Not sure what to think of it yet.
Has anyone come across this stuff yet or am I just getting this 10 years later ?

Re: Sheetrock plastic-lined paper bead


News to me

Does it cost more or less than the metal

Now you got to do a Myth busters test, see which is stronger, the metal or plastic when you hit them, maybe throw a little bit of mud max into the experiment too .

Just in case you want something else better to do ,,,,,,,,,, than dig out snow

Still no snow here Sir mudslingr

Re: Sheetrock plastic-lined paper bead


It looks like a winner - wonder why we haven't seen it earlier? maybe the price of steel has gone up? Interested to see the cost comparison.

Re: Sheetrock plastic-lined paper bead


No idea of cost. Came as a sample in a box of B1 Super-Wide. I put it on a bulkhead so no reason to beat the crap out of it but if I get another I will.
Have never tried MudMax ever.
And just enough frozen snow to cover the grass. Everything else is bare. But it is -23°C with the windchill right now !

Re: Sheetrock plastic-lined paper bead


I usually crimp the ends of the paper/metal bead inwards a bit to avoid the sharp edge popping through. Wonder if you can still do that with the plastic? Now you got me curious and I want to try some.

Send a email to sheet rock, tell them of DWT, and this link, maybe they will send you some sticks to test

Simply put, nope. It is amazingly light though !
I'm bending it right now and it will not hold it's shape very well. I just snapped the middle of it after only 3 folds back and forth.

I cut a sliver off the flange at the top of each bead,,keeps the angle straight..Do the same with no-coat.

Hah - never heard of a plastic import tax. If they are anywhere near 40% more then thats my answer. I would stay with the paper/metal then.

It looks like No-Coat but in stick form to me, minus the sharp corner.

That's why I think Sir Mudslingr should test it out for them. Then we get to see him beat the cr*p out of some bead with a baseball bat

Or maybe a Hockey stick, since he's from Canada
