It is my sincere apologies if this has been asked a million times before, but what are the advantages and disadvantages of soaking the tape in water before you use it. Can you tell me how long it will last? Thanks
Even when Artexing it was only the original brown tape that needed to be soaked.
The white Artex tape didn't have to be wetted, it was the main reason for using it, especially seeing as it was dearer.There was also the artex approved white tape they used to recommend wetting.
Bit thinner than wallboard tape and a bit wider.
Bang that on with the small bags of artex quick start, (which cost fortunes), to get the jobs turned out quicker.
