Reinforce corners with corner beads
The external corners of walls are particularly vulnerable to knocks and bumps. So it is a good idea to reinforce them while you are applying filler. This is easily done with the aid of corner reinforcements, which are available in two kinds:
- Self-adhesive corner reinforcements
- Corner reinforcements that you install in filler
Dalapro corner reinforcements are available in trimmed lengths for 90-degree outside corners and on rolls that can be folded to the desired angle in order to fit inside corners, outside corners and non 90-degree corners.r.
Dalapro’s product range contains three different corner reinforcements and special tools to make work easier:
AquaBead corner reinforcement is a self-adhesive corner bead with a water-activated adhesive. Attach by spraying clean water onto the bead, wait 30–60 seconds and then install the external corner. AquaBead corner reinforcements may only be used on new, papered plaster.
Habito corner reinforcement is installed in filler, is very hard-wearing and produces straight, neat corners. Habito corner reinforcement can be used on all kinds of substrates, such as gypsum, concrete, plaster and painted surfaces.
Levelline corner reinforcement is installed in filler and is hard-wearing. It is a little narrower than the Habito corner reinforcement and is therefore particularly good in, for example, window and door openings. Levelline can be used on all kinds of substrates such as gypsum, concrete, plaster and painted surfaces.
