Can I use FibaTape or FibaFuse on an inside corner?
Yes. FibaTape can be used to tape inside corners. Just fold it with one hand and press it into the corner with the other. The tape is self-adhesive so it can be applied to all the inside corners before any joint compound is applied. Make sure the tape is tight into the corner without being slightly rounded. If it is rounded then it is not tight into the corner. So when a taping knife is used to apply and smooth the joint compound the taping knife could accidentally cut through the tape. FibaTape does make a special tool for placing the tape into the inside corners. The dispenser type tool holds a roll of tape and actually rolls the tape tight into the corner and cuts it to the desired length. A must have tool for larger taping jobs.
FibaFuse is pre-creased for corners. While you can use a taping knife, we suggest using a corner trowel for installation to prevent cutting the tape.
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.
