[ Overview ]

3-3/8”w (86mm)

COLOR CODE GRAY

Arch-Flex is the first arch product that comes on a roll. Designed for all radius curves, Arch-Flex also resists dents and paint chipping, cuts easily with a scissors or utility knife, is applied with all-purpose joint compound, and will not rust. The tape is manufactured with patented tear strips to create easy straight-to-curve transitions.

  • The best flex-tape that runs through a Bazooka®. Cuts easily.
  • Pre-finished surface. Just skim coat edges to finish. 
  • Inside 90º corners where a small fill or straightening is required.
  • Inside corners of bay windows.
  • Straightens small framing irregularities.

[ Installation ]

PREPARATION

Run your taping knife over the surface of the drywall and remove any high spots. If the knife hits a screw head, set the screw a little deeper. Use a drywall rasp to clean up edges, if needed.

Measure entire curved application by using ARCH-FLEX as a tape measure. Cut to measured length plus 1 inch.

(1)  Fold ARCH-FLEX in half at center crease. To ensure ARCH-FLEX lays flat on wall, fold less than desired angle for inside corners. For outside corners, fold more than desired angle.

(2) Remove the tear strip by folding along perforation and pulling. HELPFUL HINTS For straight-to-curve transitions, remove the tear strip by folding along perforation and only for the curved area. Leave tear strip intact for the non-curved areas. 


STEP ONE


(3)  With a 4”or 5” taping knife, apply a smooth, liberal coat of all-purpose compound to corner.

(4)  Press ARCH-FLEX firmly into compound to form a uniform curve.

(5)  Wipe down tight and smooth with a 4”or 5” taping knife. Let dry completely.

(6)  For high volume applications, use BSR-300 Rolling Tool for fast installation and squaring up corner beads.

(7) HELPFUL HINTS Use push pins to position ARCH-FLEX.

STEP TWO

(8)  Apply a fill coat of compound feathering the compound beyond the previous coat. (Fill coat can be applied immediately after STEP 2, if desired.) Lightweight compound used in this step makes sanding much easier. Let dry completely.

STEP THREE

(9)  Apply finish coat. Let dry completely.

STEP FOUR

(10)  Sand lightly: 100-150 grit sandpaper (with finish coat of all-purpose compound) or 120-200 grit sandpaper (with finish coat of lightweight compound). ARCH-FLEX will not fuzz-up like other paper-faced arched products.
