    Default quality of materials


    Just got another box of scrim tape and pretty much like the last box at least a quater of the scrim tape is useless won't stick to the wall even the expensive stuff ain't that good.. I can remember scriming up jobs with sheetrock scrim the night b4 and it would not drop.. also paper tape whit some brands seems to tare a lot easier. . Any one else find this..

    Sheetrock was brilliant(same as grade one) but you cant buy anywhere. Everything else is very inconsistent, either wont stick or frays at the edge.

    I never knew they had their own fiba tape DMC? We use the JRT plasterers scrim tape and it sticks alright. We do get the odd roll where it frays at the edge, but its good tape.
