Shower Bead, sometimes known as Oversized Tear Away L Bead, is Trim-Tex’s extra-wide, streamlined solution to bridging the gap between drywall and other substrates, like shower enclosures and windows. Normally, for these kinds of wider gaps, you would need to fill them with plenty of mud and then cover them with paper tape; with Shower Bead, all you need to do is install a single, vinyl bead.
Besides saving on mud and time, Shower Bead is especially going to come in handy in areas with a lot of moisture, since the vinyl won’t serve as a food source for mold like paper tape, and won’t rust like metal. This attribute makes it perfect for showers and tubs to cover the crevices between those enclosures and your drywall. (Learn more about finishing drywall around a shower flange here.)
