14-1003 v2.X Tear Away L Beads in Drywall Systems


We are requesting an exception to use Tear-away L beads that are made of PVC. This falls under the general red list exception per our research because there is no alternate manufacturer for this product and only one material type available.Please see attached due diligence documentation by our drywall contractor, his supplier/distributor, and confirmed through research by our team. https://ilbi.org/action/community/dialogue/materials/red-list/99/238404683/80481240/scan0015.pdf


PVC L-bead is not allowed. Metal and plastic L-bead and corner -bead are readily available and while the tear-off function of the PVC bead is convenient, it is not required for installation of building materials.
