Vinyl Rip-Bead® L-Bead (VLZL)

Creates a clean line at intersection of gypsum board and ceiling grid

Vinyl Rip Bead® L-Bead (VLZL) (formerly known as CT50 or CT58) produces an exceptional finish at intersection of gypsum panels to ceiling grid, window returns and dissimilar wall types. A tear-away strip on the Rip Bead® L-Bead provides a protective edge and a guide for the drywall finishing knives. Once joint compound is applied, finished and painted, the tear-away strip is removed to form a crisp, clean edge. Multiple perforations along the nailing flange enhance strong compound adhesion.

  • Eliminates clean up and masking tape.
  • Rust proof and dent resistant.
  • Multiple perforations enhance joint compound adhesion.
  • Produces clean, finished edges at panel terminations.

Material: 0.028 PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
