Tear Away Bead


So I'm rather new to commercial and am currently doing a swimming pool and rec center. They want the tear away around the windows. Never used it before and was wondering if i coat onto the lip or below it on the trimtex side. I think it's onto the lip so i get a fill.

Re: Tear Away Bead


Ride the lip. Don't forget to use spray adhesive and staple them on. I first coat with confil to get the strongest bond then two more to finish. Good luck, sounds like a lot of sqf!

Re: Tear Away Bead


it's only 14k board. Mostly stand ups too..and they used this 5/8 tough rock aqua board..it's messed up..one sheet must weight the same as 3 regular sheets. They had to cut it with a skill saw lol. I stapled them and used 90 for firts coat...same way i do arches. Glad to know I was right lol The nice thing is i got 20k of 9 foot office out of it at a great rate.

Re: Tear Away Bead


I've never found the spray adhesive to be worth it, personally.

Re: Tear Away Bead


I've used both spray contact cement and just staples , if I have a lot of bead to install like last summer almost 4 cases i like the adhesive it is fast and i find that it lays way nicer , nice and flat , don't have to tap in those staples that may not go in all the way.. sometimes I even run tape just on the outside of the lip so that it is recessed , usually one more coat over that and wala perfect and it comes out so nice . If i do staple I always use 9/16" staples nothing shorter because they seem to work out before you can get it coated really sucks.....

Re: Tear Away Bead


Spray adhesive has become indespensible, especially as framers think we wish trims on theses days. All too often ther is nothing to staple/nail to, re: most os splay corners, furdowns, etc. Be sure and spray both surfaces and you should be fine.

Sweet tip with the tape ..... Tried it today on a set of windows, see how she dries. You are using Durabond to embed the tape right ?

Durabond and tape ...... You never know if it is going to suck it in or bulge it out.
