What are the key qualities to look for in a stucco tape?

by | Apr 5, 2017 | Building & Construction, Stucco

Stucco application can be messy, making it essential to find the right tape to stand up to the job. Stucco tape needs to be able to:

  • Adhere strongly to a variety of surfaces, such as vinyl, wood, metal, concrete, brick, stucco, and poly-sheeting
  • Conform to irregular surfaces
  • Unwind easily from the roll
  • Withstand harsh trowel scraping
  • Create a watertight seal to protect surfaces from water sprayed on the stucco after application
  • Withstand hot, dry, and humid environments, especially prolonged exposure to the sun
  • Remove quickly and cleanly by hand without shredding or damaging the surface it was removed from
