Looking for beads to use with Airless Plaster. Are these Trim Text beads thinner then thin coat plaster beads,

Use Sheetrock or Beadex tape on beads. They are the dogs bollocks. Can't see this vinyl stuff being much cop to be honest. The last vinyl beads I tried ended up in the bin. Utter crap.
I can get the Beadex external corner beads from Minsters for 49 a box (50x2.4m) plus vat. You need to ask for Lafarge tape on external corner bead, and they get you the Beadex ones. I think Beadex must have an agreement with Lafarge or something.

These lay flatter than thin coat beads.

They are o.k. have spray glued splayed angles and used them off a hoist which the normal corner tape just unwinds every where in the limited space. I found it much better and quicker ..... dont forget to roller them.

Tony - not sure which make of vinyl you used before but the new trim tex slimline beads a spot on - best thing is the speed of application - staple - spray glue or bed on - use less filler / ames - faster dry times - quicker job - more wonga in pocket ! Happy to send you some to try - would be great for spray plasterwork too.

I would be interested in purchasing some of these as well

Do you have a link with more information?
