Arch-Stick

Description

Designed for all curved applications that are 90º corners, Arch-Stick features a wire backbone for perfect arches and no “flat” spots. Patented tear strips reduces transportation damage and is designed to make curved to straight transitions unnoticeable. Arch-Stick resists dents and paint chipping, applies with all-purpose joint compound, and will not rust. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material with a protective laminated nose, it is extremely strong and will not fuzz-up when sanding. A second coat can be applied immediately.

Installation

PREPARATION


Run your taping knife over the corner area and remove any high spots. Measure entire curved application. Using ARCH-STICK as a ruler, cut to length  plus 1 inch.

Remove tear strip by folding along perforations (1) and pulling (2). For a perfect straight-to-curve transition, leave tear strip intact in straight areas. When transitions occur between curved and straight areas, ARCH-STICK’s profile matches most conventional corner beads.

INSTALLATION

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

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

(5) Where material meets, or for irregular framing, use thumb tacks, small nails, or paper tape to hold Arch-Stick in place to ensure a smooth arch.

(6) Wipe down tight and smooth with a 4”or 5” taping knife. Let dry for several hours or overnight.

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

FILL COAT

Use a taping knife or sanding block to remove any high spots to create a flat, level surface.

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

FINISH COAT

(9) Apply finish coat. Let dry for several hours or overnight.

SANDING

(10) Sand lightly with 150 grit sandpaper. ARCH-STICK will not fuzz-up like other paper-faced arched products.

REPAIRS OVER PAINTED SURFACES.

Strait-Flex recommends the use of Strait-Flex Super-Bond or latex paint, mixed with all-purpose joint compound to enhance bondability.
