The reason is so we can work as fast ass possible. if we use paper, we use wet n stick. Its already folded. But generally fiber mesh. You guys work with a bazooka we use the flottrunner. we would like to gain knowledge and experience so thanks for the tips.
if you look for speed use paper through automatic tools(bazooka or banjo) because in 1 shoot you apply the paper and the mud so 1 coat done

Hi you guys, i new on drywall talk. Iam a Dutch drywaller and iam curious to your process to complete projects. For example why you prefer paper tape instead of fiber tape? here it is the opposite. Please leave a comment.

Greetings from the Netherlands :thumbup:
I thought all Dutchmen were suppose to be cheap:whistling2:

Just tell all your buddies paper is cheaper than Mesh, and you will all start using paper tomorrow:rolleyes:

Keke indeed we Gonna try everything, this is how we applying mesh: http://youtu.be/hj-qqO_R6KU
I know the flottrunner and it's a BIG MINUS when meshtape gets split in parts or doesnt have enough glue and IT'S A PAIN THE THE A$$

And even if it works you have to come back to apply mud and this is a BIG WIN when you use paper with automatic tools

Meshtape is good for small jobs,1-2 bedrooms apartments ( one day job) with quick setup mud but for big jobs ( > 1000 sm) paper tape with automatic tools is THE BEST

Flottrunner is on our market since March this year. our experience is good so far. It saves us a lot of time.

I thought you could only apply paper on wall or sealing with the automatic tools. That you also have to come back to apply mud?

Just to clear up the misunderstanding:

You have to come back and apply the mud when you use the mesh with the flottrunner not when you use paper with automatic tools
