GRAND ISLAND, NY -- Saint-Gobain ADFORS, a global leader in manufacturing of customized reinforcement solutions, recently announced the newest addition to their FibaTape® product line called UltraX™ drywall tape. UltraX™ was developed to assist the manufactured and modular housing industry by offering added protection to wall and ceiling joints throughout the building and re-location process.

UltraX™ mesh tape features a patented multi-directional construction that provides added strength for reinforcing joints in drywall. It is 60% stronger than standard mesh tape. With a wider width, this product provides better gap coverage and stress distribution. Also, UltraX™ is adhesive, which makes for easy application and works well in fluctuating temperatures and high humidity environments. The benefits of this product does not stop there. After applied, UltraX™ provides a smooth finish so there are no bubbles or blisters, which are commonly found when applying paper tape.

"This product is going to make a big impact in the manufactured and modular housing industry. It will greatly reduce the amount of time and money spent on repairing walls after relocation," said Meagan Siwiec, product manager for wall finishings and facades at Saint-Gobain ADFORS.

UltraX™ drywall tape is available in 2 3/8-inch x 250-foot rolls. Each roll is packaged in resistant wrap and shipped 20 each per case.
