The bead consists of laminated paper over a sturdy, yet flexible, vinyl core. Attached to this vinyl core are Trim-Tex’s patented mud locks, which grip into the joint compound for an unmatched bonding element. Combine that with the added bond of the paper to the drywall, and the result is a corner that can withstand much more impact with much less damage to its sharp nose or its bond to the corner.
Additionally, the flexibility of the bead makes it an ideal fit for the fast pace of commercial construction. Commercial drywall finishers experience a common problem just about every day — the framing and/or the drywall often isn’t hung perfectly straight. In multifamily projects like The Avalyn, where the time it takes to achieve perfection is a rare resource, this happens more often than not. A highly flexible bead like Fast Edge Paper, with its adjustable hinge design, allows finishers to adjust to variances in the framing, forming crisp, straight corners even when the underlying drywall work may be less-than-perfect.
