Wall Repair Tape White 50mm x 25m
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 âUltra-thin self-adhesive fabric. Ideal for repairing cracks in ceilings and walls. Can be painted over.â 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.

an important tape to carry
As a surface joint repair this works well. Its okay for p'boards that are surface filled and painted.

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.
