FibaTape Cement Board Tape

FibaTape Drywall Tape for Cement Board

FibaTape® Cement Board Tape is a patented alkali-resistant fiberglass mesh drywall tape, and the only tape that should be used for cement applications with dry or thin-set mortar. This self-adhesive tape is made from the same vinyl-coated fabric that is embedded in the face of some cement boards to give the board added strength and crack resistance.

Cement board panels – sometimes referred to as tile backerboard – are wallboard sheets made with cement and other water-resistant materials. They have now become the standard for use in high-humidity areas, especially behind ceramic tiles, where moisture intrusion can be an issue.

Other benefits include:

  • Ideal for indoor and outdoor use

  • Heavy fiberglass yarn increases joint strength and structural integrity

  • Resists mold and mildew

  • Ideal for use in bathrooms and kitchens


  • Cement board joints

  • Tile backerboard
