Paper Tape is designed to use with the drying-type premixed drywall joint compound and the setting-type joint compound.
Fibreglass mesh tape is designed to use with a setting-type joint compound only. It is not recommended to use drying-type compounds with fibreglass mesh tape.
Setting-type drywall joint compound is designed to use with paper tape and fibreglass mesh tape.
Drying-type premixed drywall joint compound is designed for paper tape only.
Drywall joint compound is designed to use with tape. Regular drywall joint compound is going to crack on the joints without drywall tape.
Taping is the most time consuming process of drywall finishing. It is like ”lath and plaster”, it requires expertise to perform, and it is expensive. Drywall tapers, homeowners, and DIYERS around the world would be really happy if they can skip the taping process.
Scientists and engineers around the world are working on Tapeless Drywall Finishing Solutions for years. Tape in mud is a revolutionary solution for Tapeless drywall finishing. Finish drywall without tape.
We have been continuously working on tapeless drywall finishing since 2009.
Liagle is a pioneer of Fibre Reinforced Tapeless Drywall Finishing. Tape in mud™️ is a game changer.
Drywall finishing can not be done without tape by using a regular joint compound.
“Tape and Mud“ is not the only way to finish drywall joints.
Tape In Mud™️ — Alternative solutions are coming.
Fibre reinforcement has thousands of years of history. As early as 3000 BC, the ancient Egyptians embedded straw in their mud bricks in order to control shrinkage and cracks, and improve the tensile strength.
The ancient Egyptians also mixed short cut straw with clay mud to finish the mud brick walls.
Sticky rice mortar was invented in ancient China. Around 500 AD, sticky rice soup was mixed with slaked lime to make a composite mortar that had more strength and water resistance than lime mortar. Stcky rice played a major role in maintaining the durability of the Great Wall as well as tombs, pagodas, and city walls.
Sticky rice mortar had high adhesive strength, sturdiness, and waterproofing capability. It created a seal between bricks that are as strong as modern cement in strength. In the Ming dynasty, lime mortar and sticky rice were used to reinforce the bricks. And those bricks could resist earthquakes and modern bulldozers.
Inspired by ancient applications of fibres and bonding agents, Liagle Drywall Finishing invented Tape In Mud™️, a fibre reinforcement solution for tapeless drywall finishing
Thanks to modern technology, now we have better and cost effective fibres and bonding agents available for making composite materials. Tape in mud- Tapeless drywall finishing, Finish drywall without tape is coming true.

When fibres mix with regular drywall joint compound at the best ratio, fibres cross link to each other and form a 3D structural mat like a dryer sheet in the mud. It serves like a fibre mat tape in the mud. That’s how liagle tapeless drywall finishing- tape in mud™️ Works.
Tape In Mud™️ can be mixed with regular drywall joint compound and turn the regular to tapeless joint compound.
Both fast setting joint compound and air drying premixed taping or all purpose joint compound can be used with Tape In Mud™️
Liagle Tapeless drywall Joint Compound can be applied to the drywall joints directly without embedding any drywall tapes.
Pre-fill, tape installation, and a filling process can be done by just one coat of Tapeless drywall joint compound.
It can save about 40% of labor time.
There is no shrinkage, and no cracks after one coat of Liagle Setting type Tapeless Joint Compound is dried.
First Coat: Tapeless Mudding with Liagle Tapeless Fast set hot mud.
Second Coat: Coating with regular finishing mud.
Just two coats of mudding, the joints are ready for sanding and painting.
Tape in mud - No Cracks!
Liagle tapeless drywall finishing- tape in mud - finish drywall without tape is the best solution for drywall finishing. By skipping the taping process, you can get the job done easier and faster. The joints finished with fibre reinforced drywall mud are even stronger than drywall itself. So there’s much less chance to crack.
