Product Innovation Success Story: FibaTape Drywall Joint Tape 

Historically, the drywall joint tape market was dominated by commodity items such as paper and standard mesh tapes that were not designed to maximize performance in specific applications. ADFORS has changed that by creating a line of application specific and premium drywall tape solutions that are unmatched in the industry. By leveraging our broad range of textile forming technologies, we have developed drywall joint tapes with unique properties, utilizing laid scrim, knit, woven fabric, and more throughout the product line. From our patented multi-directional Extra Strength tape to our Perfect Finish Ultra-Thin tape, we offer a complete line of solution-specific products in the joint tape market. All are available under the FibaTape brand, which is the world’s leading and most trusted brand of drywall tapes for both professional contractors and DIY’ers.

ADFORS partnered with a major commercial roofing company to help them develop a roofing system that provides high tensile and tear strength characteristics for use in low slope roofing applications.  Through collaborative R&D efforts, ADFORS and our roofing partner selected the proper fabric forming technology and binder chemistry to work optimally with their manufacturing processes and chemistries.  The result was commercializing a low slope roofing system that is FM and Miami Dade County Approved.
