What is it for?

Tear strips allow for straight-to-curve transitions in tight radiuses where conventional tapes show dents, paint chipping, shrinking and cracking problems. Apply with all-purpose joint-compound.

  • Arched windows and doors, tight radius curves, and free-form curves
  • Curved walls, ceilings, soffits, staircases, barrel vaults, and groin cathedral ceilings
  • Installs using standard compounds. No special tools or fasteners needed
  • Taping around circular air ducts
  • Produces smooth, professional-looking curves. Tear strips allow for easy straight-to-curve transitions.
  • Resists dents, paint chipping, shrinkage, and common cracking problems

  • 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.
  • Remove the tear strip by folding along perforation and pulling. 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.
  • With a 4”or 5” taping knife, apply a smooth, liberal coat of all-purpose compound to corner.
  • Press Arch-Flex firmly into compound to form a uniform curve.
  • Wipe down tight and smooth with a 4”or 5” taping knife. Let dry completely.
  • Apply a fill coat of compound feathering the compound beyond the previous coat. Fill coat can be applied immediately after applying Arch-Flex. Lightweight compound used in this step makes sanding much easier. Let dry completely.
  • Apply finish coat. Let dry completely.
  • 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.

What others have to say - Testimonials 

"Have used and trusted for the past 5 years. Staple product in our industry". - Dwayne (Pro Stopper)

"I could not have made an arched opening in a wall without this flexible edging. Highly recommended." - Jenny (DIYer)​

"First time trying this out. Did two round archways and was very easy to use. Gets a little messy with the mud of course cause it's not like paper tape. The corner looks very professional." - Chris (DIYer)
