In their ongoing pursuit to provide premium finishing products to the drywall industry, CertainTeed introduces CertainTeed® Flexible Corner Bead. Offering the applicator a solution for a multitude of challenging project needs, CertainTeed Flexible Corner Bead can create durable corner details that are true and easy to finish and can be used to tackle any interior or exterior corner angle.
Available now in 2.75-inch by 100-foot rolls, CertainTeed Flexible Corner Bead features a polymer core with a built-in flexible hinge that conforms to all inside and outside corners. Because it easily adjusts to all angles, tray ceilings, bay windows and even archways can be quickly finished with crisp straight lines, as the need for pre-measuring and pre-creasing is eliminated, saving valuable installation time.
“CertainTeed Flexible Corner Bead is an excellent addition to our existing line of high performance gypsum finishing products,” says Dave Engelhardt, senior vice president of operations and general manager for finishing products at CertainTeed Gypsum. “Not only does it increase productivity for drywall professionals because it’s easy to install, it helps DIYers get the job done right.”
The benefits extend beyond ease of installation and edge control, as CertainTeed Flexible Corner Bead is abuse-resistant, so corners will not easily bruise, crack or chip, standing up to the toughest conditions. To further support the visual of the finished project and lead the industry, even the surface paper was engineered with a special latex-permeated coating to easily accept any finish treatment and provide beautiful end results.
