    Just reading the healthy debate over at level 6 finishing - just noticed phil mention wet n stick tape - any other tapers use this stuff??

    Maybe look into stocking if enough interest!

    IMHO You would be better aiming for the DIY market with this product, but I may be wrong. I've only heard of it once and it gets immersed in water and applied like wallpaper once the adhesives activated. Is that the stuff?

    As an alternative to fibatape, I dont know ... well maybe because you wont know until youve tried it and maybe it could be applied with a banjo? I just know theres no chance I'd be putting that stuff through my Tapetech.

    Let me Google "wet n stick tape" for you

    I don't use it on flat tapes, only internals. Then, I always fill the screw head and any gap over 3mm in width when i'm first coating, because you will get a hollow otherwise. It's ok on commercial jobs where there are minimal numbers of internals, but I wouldn't do a whole house, top internals and all with it.

    Thanks for feedback, been asking around myself last couple of days - doesn't seem that popular a product.

    Had to post this in case I was picked up wrong, my point being I wouldnt like to condemn a product thats fit for the job, Tony seems to think its OK. I just havent had the need to, or probably wont ever use this product due to mechanical taping most of the time. This tape could be great stuff and Ive just happened to pass it by maybe?

    Threads still open if someone else wants to comment.

    Been using Wet and stick on and off for over 3 years now use it mostly for small/emergency jobs , but have used it just on Internal angles on a bigger jobs as well but found unless the sheeting is perfect you can spend more time blocking out and lose any time/material that its supposed to save you .

    Overall Great for small jobs .

    Always keep a few rolls of this in stock, I find it good for commercial jobs where there are very few internals as it goes on quick and saves messing about cleaning out the bazooka for say half a dozen internals.

    The adhesive on it is really strong. you don't get much time to adjust it once in place. That should mean it'll stay there.

    i have used it and spent more time cutting out bubbles not worth it, every little hole as to be pre filled and you end up soaking on ceilings. buy a mudrunner for your internals and use unsticky paper my opinion.

    hi tony

    you said in an earlier post you only use it on flats and even fill the screw indents first and never over a gap more than 3mm,, you cant stick up for it now

    and you would never do a full house with it

    If you read my post properly, I said I don't use it on flat joints, only internals, and I would not do a whole house with it. When I have used it, it does the job fine. Doing a long top internal with it, would give it time to dry before getting it on the wall. You can get a dispenser that you wear on your waist with water and tape in it, but to me, that's a whole roll f*cked if you don't use it up. Actually, once the plastic wrapping has been removed, unless you keep it indoors at home or somewhere really dry, it'll be stuck together next time you want it.
    Like everything, it has its place.

    I tested it once when I worked for Lafarge. found it was OK we run a wet paint brush down the joint then applied the tape and brushed it out. It stuck like S**t to a blanket to the Deco presealed boards. However you will never get a manufactuer warrinty from Lafrge on it as we didn't do lab adhesion tests.

    As all have said nice get out of jail product.
