Meet the Fast Edge
Family: A Faster Finish for Every Corner
As many Trim-Tex customers will remember, a few years ago they introduced the first member of the Fast Edge
family, which delivered on their promise to make a corner bead that finishes faster than anything else on the market while using less mud. With the Fast Edge
family of products
growing, let’s run down each member of that family and explain which bead is right for which situation. This way, next time you’re visiting
your local drywall supply dealer
, you’ll be better informed for what beads to buy for your next project.

Each member of the Fast Edge
family of corner beads will help you achieve a super-durable, flawless finish — and will save you time and mud while you’re at it.
Corner Cracks Conquered in Coastal Florida
For properties like this custom home in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, summertime moisture is the number-one cause of cracks in the compound of finished drywall. Clay Drywall is no stranger to facing down the enemy of moisture. They spent years searching for a sure-fire killer of corner cracks from moisture, and in 2019, when Trim-Tex rolled out Fast Edge
Paper, Clay Drywall found their best weapon against humidity — a corner bead, made from a vinyl core covered with laminated paper, that won’t rust, won’t cause cracks and holds its shape after even extreme impact.

The standard Fast Edg
an all-vinyl, time-saving innovation for 90-degree corners
. The bead’s powerful
—small hooks that you’ll find running along its inner surface—dig into mud and give Fast Edge an unbeatable bond to the corner. Between its sharp nose, tapered legs and solid mud legs with no holes, Fast Edge is sleekly engineered to save you time and material.
Paper. After first launching Fast Edg
, Trim-Tex saw an opportunity to utilize the speedy design of that bead and encase it in a layer of laminated paper
for the best of both worlds
: the strength of vinyl Mud Locks and the convenience and
power of paper. The result, Fast Edge
Paper, was the fastest-selling product in Trim-Tex history, and
drywall finishers have raved
about its speed, mud savings and high levels of durability.
Many drywall workers wanted
a version of Fast Edge Paper they could carry around in a conveniently sized box and roll out for all kinds of angles
—inside corners, outside corners, off angles, sharp angles, you name it. After a few years of testing and perfecting the formula, Trim-Tex rolled out the next evolution of the Fast Edge
family: Fast Edg
Roll. With 100 feet of bead in a single box, Fast Edg
Roll takes everything you love about these Fast Edg
beads and puts it into a highly handy rolled form, available in four widths.
