NO-COAT® Structural Laminate (SLAM®) drywall corner installs faster with superior strength and durability.

The NO-COAT® Structural Laminate (SLAM™) design represents a revolutionary drywall corner system that provides superior strength and durability, installs faster, and delivers bottom line savings in labor and mud.

Whether finishing off-angles, archways, inside or outside corners, NO-COAT offers a complete corner system for every job. And now NO-COAT offers an exclusive line of tools and accessories that make corner application even easier.
SLAM Technology – A Breakthrough in Drywall Corner Finishing

NO-COAT corners incorporate a tapered structural laminate design that consists of three key components:

1.    Tapered co-polymer core capable of withstanding severe impacts.
2.    Joint tape that permanently bonds the corner to drywall with All-Purpose joint compound.
3.    Formulated surface paper that eliminates cracks, chips and peels. Accepts any finish, resists abrasion.

A Radical Departure from Corner Bead
For more than 80 years, drywall contractors have reached for corner bead because it has been the only option available – not because it’s the best product.

Improvements such as plastic or paper faced metal are still based on a flawed bead design that creates more problems than it solves. Beads are notorious in the industry for causing costly callbacks from denting, chipping, rusting, cracking and peeling. In addition, beads require excessive mud application that costs contractors time and money.

An Innovative Solution
NO-COAT structural laminate corners abandon corner bead design entirely. Instead, the SLAM design integrates new technologies and materials like dimensionally extruded co-polymer plastic and formulated saturated paper. The result is a corner system that outperforms all others in the market.
