Scrim Tape is an essential accessory for dry-liners and DIY enthusiasts, it is needed for any joins found in Acoustic Plasterboard to our MuteBoard™ range, and it helps for skim plaster layer to stick to it. It is advised to apply this as you plaster and not in advance as the adhesive can lose its tack and fall off the wall.

Where is scrim tape used?

Scrim Tape is used for taping all joins in plasterboard so that the skim plaster layer bonds to the meshing, it will not bond to the sealant alone. You will want to apply the scrim tape as you plaster and not leave it - it’s adhesive does not hold for a great length of time.


How much scrim tape do I need to apply?

A single strip will often suffice, some continue to go over certain areas to make sure that full coverage is provided on the acoustic plasterboard joins.


Does scrim tape offer any sound proofing benefits?

Scrim tape offers no additional soundproofing when applied, but, a skim layer will help to patch in any gaps.
