Don't take me the wrong way here, why would you waist your time with mesh? You have to put it on by hand then go back over it to fill the bevel. You do realize that your not really joining the drywall together with the mesh like paper joins it together. This are the facts:

1. mesh cost more per. ft.
2. mesh taping methods takes longer to apply then paper methods.
3. mesh has less over all strength when combined with proper compounds to drywall papered surfaces.

Conclusion is to just use paper like the manufacture suggests :yes:

Wondering if the reason they say you can't sand it is because it would be like trying to sand caulking? Sounds like it might be a good taping mud and you don't sand taping mud anyway. Magnum isn't a fly by night company. Been around a long time. Worth a shot. (with paper tape:whistling2:)

The science does not gell with me on this one. Why have a flexible tape coat and then put coats that will not flex over that?
I don't know, makes a bit of sense.
With paper tape, things will crack, but it takes longer for the crack to work its way through the paper. I don't know how many guys have removed a tape, and seen the mud that has entered the crack or gap in a bevell, remain hidden behind the paper. Well with the "M" stuff, there is no place for the cracking to remain hidden behind.

So with this product, it's not bragging it's strong, that it's going to hold the house together, it's bragging point is it's FLEXIBLE ..!!!!!!

So where do cracks start, on the surface or underneath. If the product moves underneath, and does not crack, then there should be no crack to work it's way to the surface.

I would be more interested in it's pre-filling properties :thumbup:

I don't use mesh, so no wrong way taken. I was simply wondering out loud. No need to sell me on paper...I was more thinking the fuse on butts with flex mud.

If you actually paid attention instead of throwing rocks you would know what we use.:jester:
I guess you contradicting statements on some of the methods discussed on DT warrant the rocks you so say I'm throwing which aren't really rocks even though durabond is like rock, I'm simply mocking your statement

The science does not gell with me on this one. Why have a flexible tape coat and then put coats that will not flex over that?
If your personally offended I'm sorry that I've not paid more attention to you and will be sure to follow and postings a little closer.
