Repairs and reinforces damage to drywall or plaster
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.
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.

What is the best way to use FibaTape when repairing cracks in plaster and is one particular version of FibaTape preferred?
Just sticking FibaTape over the crack and concealing with joint compound may work, but most likely the crack will return to some degree. Creating a V groove along the crack will allow you to actually fill in the crack and repair deep into the crack. The extreme cracks should be covered with Extra Strength FibaTape. The tape can be applied over the V groove and when compound is applied make sure to apply enough pressure with the taping knife to force compound through the tape filling the V groove. You could also prefill with compound and cover with the tape. Perfect Finish™ FibaTape is also good for the repairs because it is quite strong and is also the thinnest product, making less of a bump for an easier to conceal repair.
