Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Product Description

Duck Brand Drywall Joint Tape is a 100% fiberglass mesh tape. It is self-adhesive and repositionable. Also strong, fast and easy to use - no need to re-apply compound to joints. Used for repairing cracks and small holes.

Instructions for Taping Drywall (Sheetrock) Joints:

  1. Clean surface of dust and dirt. Position tape over seam and cut to exact length.
  2. When seaming drywall/wallboard joints, use only quick setting joint compound. For best results maintain room temperature between 50° - 70°F.
  3. Apply joint compound working it through the mesh. Let dry to manufacturer's instructions and sand smooth.
  4. Apply a second, thinner coat wider than the first feathering edges outward. Let dry and sand smooth.

Instructions for Repairing Cracks:

  1. Slightly open up crack to a width of 1/8" and fill with ready mix or any setting compound. Let dry to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Clean and sand surface. Apply joint tape to the repair area; overlapping the end of each crack by 1" or more.
  3. Spread compound down the crack, working it through the mesh. let dry and sand smooth.
  4. For a finished appearance apply a second, thinner coat wider than the first. Let dry and sand smooth.

Instructions for Patching Holes:

  1. Clean and sand surface.
  2. Cut two pieces of joint tape 2" longer than the hole dimensions. Apply tape over the hole in a criss-cross manner so entire opening is covered by both layers.
  3. Depress joint tape 1/4" into hole and fill with ready mix or any setting compound. Let dry to manufacturer's instructions and sand smooth.
  4. For a finished appearance apply a second, thinner coat wider than the first. Let dry and sand smooth.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

  • Core: 3" diameter
Note: Specifications are those given by manufacturers and are not tested for accuracy.

AlertRoll Sizes/Widths:

Please note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice- free. Tape rolls are typically cut to standard tape industry metric-cut sizes - or approx 5% narrower than the nominal size (i.e. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered).

Please contact us to inquire about pricing for full-cut widths (e.g. a 6 inch roll cut to exactly 152mm instead of 144mm).

Duck Brand Drywall Joint Self-Adhesive Fiberglass Tape
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
