FibaTape Cement Board Tape
FibaTape Drywall Tape for Cement Board
FibaTape® Cement Board Tape is a patented alkali-resistant fiberglass mesh drywall tape, and the only tape that should be used for cement applications with dry or thin-set mortar. This self-adhesive tape is made from the same vinyl-coated fabric that is embedded in the face of some cement boards to give the board added strength and crack resistance.
Cement board panels – sometimes referred to as tile backerboard – are wallboard sheets made with cement and other water-resistant materials. They have now become the standard for use in high-humidity areas, especially behind ceramic tiles, where moisture intrusion can be an issue.
Other benefits include:
Ideal for indoor and outdoor use
Heavy fiberglass yarn increases joint strength and structural integrity
Resists mold and mildew
Ideal for use in bathrooms and kitchens
Cement board joints
