#2A Expanded Corner Bead

RIGID, Expanded flange corner bead for exterior corners

A more rigid expanded corner bead for reinforcing plaster/stucco corners when used with masonry and fire proofing beads and columns. The #2A Corner Bead provides extra strength and rigidity by incorporating a wider 3-1/4” flange with an added stiffener ridge. The Double-X is an ideal choice for corners in high-traffic areas.

Application(s): Stucco

Strong and economical with multiple general use purposes, the wider, expanded-wing flanges are flexible and can compensate for most irregular surfaces, providing straight corners and even grounds with extra strength. Used to reinforce Portland cement stucco at external corners.

Galvanized steel products should not be used with Portland cement stucco containing calcium chloride additives or magnesium oxychloride cement stucco. The selection of the appropriate type of material for accessories shall be determined by the surrounding climatic and environmental conditions such as high humidity, salt air, and industrial pollution. The #2A Corner Bead is available in Zinc for approved corrosion resistance.
