"I have used this tape to repair cracks in walls and ceilings.After placing the tape over over the crack I apply several coats of dry lining cement/compound and rub down when dry.lovely fine finish to paint over.Many of my friends are now using this method to repair those plaster cracks that use to keep opening up after painting but not any more."
"If you want to calm your concience with a quick solution... I didn't have time to fix old plasterboard ceiling properly so I covered cracks with this tape before wallpapering it. A month now, nothing bad happened. In my opinion this tape is useful only in this kind of situations."
"The problem is that when this thin tape is applied to a ceiling crack as I used it for on a flat ceiling, the straight edges of the tape stand proud of the surface and stand out like a sore thumb. I built up many paint layers both sides of the tape but it still stands out like a large sticking plaster on my ceiling. I can now not peel it off as it will rip all the paint back to the plaster. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT!!!!! May work better on a contured surface - but beware! I took it back!!!"
"This is a very disappointing product. I note that other reviews refer to it being used before plastering. For that purpose, a better product would be plasterboard joint tape which is specifically design for that role.
The purpose of this tape is perhaps unclear. It is described as “Ultra-thin self-adhesive fabric. Ideal for repairing cracks in ceilings and walls. Can be painted over.” This would seem to imply that it can be used on a ceiling/wall which is already plastered. As one review has pointed out, simply painting over this tape will not cause it to become concealed. From my experience, three coats of emulsion have failed in this respect.
Cracked ceilings are a problem, this tape is unlikely to be the solution."
"I have used this tape before and it was brilliant but this time it was not fit for purpose, To use it the edges need to be trimmed, otherwise the backing tape sticks at the edges, that then defeats the purpose of the tape because the edges don't stick. I would avoid buying this product unless you ask how long it has been in stock."
