Has anyone had any trouble with the new gypsum metal edge tape? House i did several months ago has a few blown edges at the windows, looks like it has been squeezed top and bottom to blow in the middle, looked fine at the time, now not so much. :banghead:

Its all crap now thats for sure!
Gyproc is not the same as wondertex as the wondertex is a lot thicker metal! I found with the wondertex that the further u got down the roll it got all f*cked up!!!
I got some arrow corner flex and its about the best i have seen in a long time and they make at their place so if its not good at least u can go straight 2 the manafacturer!

I've had before but the tape was coming out the box bent. I cut a small v to sort the problem, or would have wasted a day taking it back.

I've found that too BM, a bit of a pain when you've got enough tape for the las 2 upright beads and they come out all bent!

I had this problem about a year ago ! Slight kinks in the metal! I then discovered that one of the words on the back of the box was spelt wrong! I think it was "snips " so I assume the supplier had given us copies ( if there is such a thing ) or just a bad batch ... Not only did they replace the order but also paid for labour for any that had been fixed that had started blowing

is this the new gyproc metal tape we´re talking about by the way? The stuff that feels too flimsy to be any good? It actually is good but i remember the old Gyproc tape went belly up a couple of years ago and they lost countless customers cos of it , my contractor included. Cant believe they let it happen AGAIN!

For me the new tape is fine but thinking about it it probably was closer to 2 years ago now

Yeah its the new stuff. Have spoken to a few tapers that are having the same trouble again. Its way to thin, look at it the wrong way and it blows
