Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9844218A1] A drywall finishing system including a multi-angle corner bead (1, 12, 26) that forms corner areas where drywall ends against another surface. Most of the intense labor associated with present methods is eliminated since none of the parts need to be coated with mud nor smoothed as by sanding. Corner bead and trim pieces (30, 40, 50) are simply placed on top of a coat of applied mud at the corner. No nails are required since the corner pieces stick to the mud. The corner piece (30) may be cut to length. A coat of mud is applied to both sides of an interior or exterior angle, with the device being placed over the mud and smoothed into place. Once the piece is in place, the edges are covered with a small amount of mud using a wide blade. The corner is then allowed to dry. When dry, the corner can be textured or painted.
