    OK, I'm a little lost. Do you guy's coat the seams when fire taping?

    If so, is it because you are using mesh tape?

    Yes MT , when firetaping we use fibatape/ meshtape on flats and butts then 1 coat of fast set/hotmud. Internal angles are given 1coat wi paper tape using cement.
    Its all mesh tape in UK my friend, we dont care much for paper tape on flats n butts. I know its stronger than mesh but timescales dictate that mesh is quicker, so.............

    Welcome to the forum, by the way!
