FibaTape self-adhesive, drywall joint tape saves on application and dry-time by eliminating the bedding coat required for paper tape installation. Fiberglass mesh is thin and easy to conceal while providing increased crack resistance.

FibaTape drywall tapes are self-adhesive fiberglass mesh tapes. As long as the surface is dry and dust free the tape will stick by pressing into place by hand or with a taping knife. The tape is now ready to be coated with joint compound.
What is the difference between the white and yellow FibaTape?
Our White and Yellow FibaTape products are the same tape. The color is a matter of personal preference. The yellow tape offers a little more guidance to make sure you have enough mud to cover the tape and to make sure that you don't sand down too low.
Does FibaTape need to be embedded?
Yes. FibaTape has to be embedded in joint compound but not in the same manner as paper tape or FibaFuse tape. FibaTape is self-adhesive and should be pressed into place over the seams or in inside corners before any joint compound is applied. The compound is applied over the tape and because it is a mesh tape the compound actually is forced through the tape. This is one of the reasons for the popularity of FibaTape, the ability to put all the tape in place and then embed.
