Strait-Flex InternationalThe company announced the addition of a self-squaring, paper-faced metal drywall cornerbead to its family of drywall products. Slimmer than conventional cornerbead, the Thin-Coat product decreases installation time and saves on joint compound expense by requiring less product to achieve a smooth finish. It is designed with 1¹⁄₈-inch flanges and .012-inch galvanized commercial-grade steel that allows the straightening of walls and soffits to be done easier. The self-squaring feature allows Thin-Coat to fit tighter than competitive cornerbeads. In most cases, Thin-Coat requires one less coat to finish than others.
