Water-activated adhesive cornerbead
February 1, 2010
Structus Building TechnologiesCombining the durability and finish of its No-Coat drywall corners with the convenience of a water-activated adhesive, Hydrotrim corners are designed specifically for hangers looking for a faster, simpler alternative to metal and plastic cornerbead. The company has spent four years engaged in research and development to overcome the industry’s past issues with water-based adhesives. The result is an easy-to-apply corner that does not blister, bubble, dent or crack. The cornerbead’s patent-pending design includes punch holes in the paper-plastic-paper flaps that allow joint compound to further bond the corner to the drywall, preventing the blistering that has plagued other water-activated products. Once wet, the product can be adjusted during installation, and dries within five to 10 minutes for rapid finishing.
