Overview

Model # 681120 Store SKU # 1000761168

Mid-Flex, a laminated composite corner tape from Strait-Flex, beautifully finishes outside corners, off angles and vaulted ceilings. Mid-Flex 300 is also a great choice when replacing damaged metal corner bead. This 3 in. tape features a pre-finished surface with a PUR-laminated nose ensuring perfect corners without paper fuzz-up during finishing and sanding. The tape's outer edge features a diamond punch pattern for a superior bond, faster drying, with no rippling or blistering. To apply, measure and cut to length, then fold in half at center crease with print side facing out. For repairing damaged corner bead, tap the damaged area of the corner bead to be recessed below the corner's edge. Apply all-purpose compound to corner. Press Mid-Flex 300 into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line and wipe down with a taping knife using additional pressure to the outer edge of the tape. Immediately apply a light skim coat to the perforated edges and let dry. Apply final coat, let dry and sand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I go out-of-my-way to buy this product I don't normally shop Home depot, but I make a special trip to buy this corner bead, as it is the only place that I can find it. Absolute breeze to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ten times the cost of papertape and still worth it My house was rebuilt 8 years ago and the contractor said the new wood would shrink and twist and there would be some settling. He wasn't wrong. The paper tape on a few inside wall and ceiling corners cracked, buckled or separated. Some were off-angles in the attic space. I tore it out and replaced with Strait-Flex and it's been excellent. Some work I did 3 years ago is still perfect with no cracks but the real value is in times savings and no-brainer application. Unless you're a pro who can sling mud like Michelangelo, this product makes super crisp corners, corrects drywall/framing irregularities and you can often get away with only 2 coats and minimal sanding. I've tried it a few different ways but have gotten the best results using a strong quick-setting mud like Sheetrock 90 for the first bedding coat (make sure to keep it well-moistened as the paper will absorb a lot of water) and then a lighter compound for the second or third coats. Also, follow the pre-bending instructions carefully before applying so that the product does not pull itself out of the corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I bought this on a suggesting by one of the drywall contractors. It has to be the best thing since sliced bread. I have no worry of bending the corners to fit in the truck or storage of 8' to 12' corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome. Great product - it was my first time taping, used this for 135 degree corners and they turned out perfectly. Witch youtube videos on how to use this bead though, you don't want to mud over the blue seam in the middle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best multi app tape Very strong material. Worked well on both the inside and outside corners as well as the many odd angles on our project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff This stuff is fantastic for outside corners: easy to use, rigid enough to look great. It's not cheap but it's good.

Hi, is this corner tape friendly for a first-time DIYer?

Asked by: numbersix
Thank you for your inquiry. This is a great corner tape for a DIY. – Twice as fast and uses half the compound of conventional corner beads – Resists dents, paint chipping, shrinkage and common cracking problems – Installs using joint compounds – No special tools or fasteners needed – Will not fuzz-up during installation and sanding – Cuts easily with knife or scissors – No cracks – Rustproof Hope this helps.
