Plasterers Tape & Scrim
When carrying out plastering, there are a few essential materials that you will always require. One of those is Plaster Tape.
Tape, Joint Tape, and Scrim Tape
Plaster Tape has a few different names, as Plaster Tape will vary slightly, but it may be referred to as Plaster Tape, Plaster Joint Tape, Scrim Tape or Drywall Tape. Plaster Tape may be referred to in these different ways, as each type of Plaster Tape can be used in slightly different ways. Plaster Joint Tape is a type of Plaster Tape that is used to reinforce joints and internal angles between plasterboard, as well as flat joints also. This type of Plaster Tape is called Plaster Joint Tape, but could also alternatively be referred to as Drywall Tape, which is another name for Plaster Joint Tape.
Applications of Joint or Scrim Tape
Plaster Tape has a number of different uses when it comes to plastering. Duct tape is one type of Plaster Tape, and it has a very versatile adhesive which means it can be used for a lot of different purposes. This Plaster Tape can be used to join materials, or even serve as borders or guidelines to follow. It may also even be used to wrap around and protect materials that are not supposed to come into contact with plaster. Scrim Tape is another variant of Plaster Tape. It is a commonly used Plaster Tape as it is an essential supply. It comes in different sizes to suit different needs, and is very inexpensive. This type of Plaster Tape is a self-adhesive tape made of a firm open- weave fabric. The main purpose of this type of tape is to ensure a unified and strong connection between two pieces of plasterboard. Because gaps cannot be avoided when installing plasterboard, if plastered without Scrim Tape, the gaps can become weak and lead to cracks.
