    Default Are there other forms of corner beading?

    I'm finishing my basement and created a problem. I built and dry walled two corners that are 135 degrees. I tried reforming 90 degree metal corner bead but I am not satisfied with the results and the 90 degree plastic bead is difficult to hold in place while attaching due to its elasticity. Is there a better way?

    Check on the USG # 800 & 900 corner bead these can be stapled in place than mudded make sure you use rust proof staples.
    Also check on the Stockton Products these beads are very user friendly.
    In the Stockton products look @ code DAB & DCB page # 17 & 18
    You may not find these in small quanities?

    We use flex-bead, a plastic base with a paper outer surface. It will conform to any angle you need and has a nice sharp corner. It requires fewer coats of mud to finish it. I don't know if it comes in short rolls though; the size we get is about 150 feet...

    Thanks men for the great info. My project is moving ahead slowly since I use it as a fill-in when time permits. Iíve started the mudding a taping stage but have stayed away from these two corners due to the bead issue. Thanks again.
