    Hi I purchased 2 EZ flame fighter tape for garage ceiling,my question is, can you mud over the tape if I decide to finish ceiling and paint or can you paint over the tape without mud? Thank You! Wade Paulouski

      Hi Wade,
      You can paint and mud over the EZ Fire Tape as long as you cover the EZ Fire Tape with an oil/alkyd-based primer. The tape has a thin silicone covering on the outside of the tape to prevent the tape from sticking to itself. If you don’t prime the tape, anything you apply to the tape will fall off. You can purchase spray cans that are made to apply to stains before painting and you can use that. As long as it’s oil/alkyd-based.

    my fire wall is 2 layers of gypsum on each side of the metal studs. We must make the joints between the two layers of gypsum. Can we use it?
