As a old pro, sorry I can not see it working, if you could use tape, then, you would use adhesive skim on the mesh of the bead.
Nice try, but from past comments it's not going to work, move on to you next idea. I understand you have spent time and want it to work. Don't take the comments personal learn from them
There are plenty of things that make plastering hard work, if you can come up with a tool or equipment to make the plastering job a bit easier. Post enquires what plasterers dislike doing ie, cleaning sponge float, washing out mixer or something they use. I remember using a saw blade on a pole as a floor scraper or a section of carpet tacked to a wooden float for sponge float and a standard drill for mixing skim.
Someone came up with a better alternative.
The problem I see with micro beads is when plasterers don't keeping the corners inline and there is a step.
You may have a few disappointments before a success. Good Luck.

i know your an old pro and it 100% won't work for you.
It is a new idea and as i have seen from my market research it being taken on, mainly by younger spreads. Thanks for your imput, it will be disregarded as usual .

You had to change your name to come on here a second time because your rep became an embarrassment young @lurpak

Old pro"s are the ones you should be listening too buddy, not some young skimmer who calls himself a spread

I commend anyone willing to try and make something of themselves. Or introdice a new product. But you've got to look at the general consensus. It's expensive and unnecessary. People love a free sample. Thats why theres so much interest. You watch them drop like flies when they find out it's a tenner a pop

Can you not ditch the holes and the peel off paper, so it could go on a dispenser like a scrim gun?
The holes are the thing that makes it work.
The plaster goes through the holes to bond onto the surface below instead of sitting on top of the surface and not creating a sufficient bond.
Also it allows for any expansion/contraction in plaster whilst drying which would wrinkle and debond a tape without the holes. The peel off paper means we do not have to use a release agent on the tape, which most tapes have to stop them sticking to their own top surface and not peeling off the roll.
this gives a better key for the plaster. The peel off strips make it much easier in use as well.
Ask and i will give the answers, much better than the slagging games?

Yeah f**k em. Its not as if a spread with 30 years on the trowel knows their trade and knows what will work and what won't...
I have been in all aspects of construction for nearly 40 years so without wishing to cause offence to anyone i am looking to learn something i don't know .

True, the answers and the improvements came from guys who tested on here and gave reccomendations and feedback. Not one single thing has been suggested of any use by someone who has not tried it, not a solitary thing, zilch.

So you should know this tape is unnecessary and people wont want to spend a tenner on it. I honestly cant understand how you haven't worked that out yet. Between staples. Grab adhesive, Nails, dab, scrim and skim which are either extremely cheap or already on the job. Your tape is obsolete and it's not even on the market yet.

Nearly 300 samples out and averaging 50 more per day, i have had to order more.
The level of interest is huge but you know that because you have seen the other site i am on.
I could f**k the tape off and get a job with Saatchi and Saatchi.

As I said time and time again, people love a freebie. Then they will try it and say yes it may work. But so does everything else I've already got in the van. And a tenners worth of staples will probably do 100 times more beads than your tape

It's just the beginning for the tape mate, you were there for the conception that's why it feels such a long time you dirty old dog.

They’re a great tool. But only as a bucket trowel. Had one for what must be 10 years. Still going strong.

in recent years the best invention was staring us all in the face, and none of us seen it or realised its potential, after a while you buy some more and so on , also sold in garden centres,/diy shops etc, a big big improvement on its previous form, and none of us seen this simple effective idea,
it is of course, step forward, big yellow buckets, but good luck to tapit at least he is trying

Forgot to add the holes prevent trapped air and bubbles forming when smoothing out tape.
