Automatic and hand tools, sanders, stilts etc. What's hot and what's not.

    What is this stuff for?


    Background info

    On a couple of jobs lately I have needed some Corner Flex, so the duly elected material fetcher on site has been instructed to go to whichever merchants is nearby, and get a couple of boxes of Corner Flex.
    They come back with Straitflex, as it's all they have. Taping delayed until proper corner tape found.
    I haven't used it on site, until last week, (still had the rolls left over) I have been fire taping, and used some there.

    There's no strength in this stuff, the only use I can see for it is internal 45 or other off angles, to give a straight (er) line

    It's used to line the bottom of skips and rubbish bags. It is utter shite.

    do what tonym says.
    It was the forefather of no-coat and mid flex, great Idea at the time, but way too many call backs on the product. It's a vinyl based product so it does not bond well with the mud
