When do I use FibaFuse Wall Reinforcement and when do I use FibaTape Super Crackstop™?
Both products really accomplish the same thing. It would be a matter of personal preference. The FibaFuse is embedded in compound that is applied first. The Super Crackstop is self-adhesive and is applied to the wall or ceiling first and is then coated with joint compound.
What type of compound should I use with FibaTape/FibaFuse?
Although FibaTape and FibaFuse products can be used with all types of compounds, we do have some recommendations for the best results.
When taping regular, tapered edge seams with Perfect Finish or Extra Strength tape we recommend heavy weight all-purpose ready-mixed compound for those that prefer all-purpose compounds. If the temperature is warm and stable and humidity is low you can also use the heavy weight compound with our other FibaTape products. FibaFuse works with all compounds but we also recommend heavy weight all-purpose if you prefer all-purpose compound. Taping and setting compounds are also great to use with our FibaTape and FibaFuse products. We suggest staying away from lightweight compounds when embedding any type of tape. Remember to always refer to the compound manufacturer’s instructions for recommended drying times.
