If I understand you right and thinking of the same product it is two peices of stiff plastic (about an 1 1/2 inches each) adhered to very wide paper tape (5 or 6 inches), the paper is wider than the plastic, and the plastic is close together in the center so when it is bent, it forms the corner right? In the instructions it tells you apply it with joint compound thinned for better shrinkage, the corner it creats is a finished corner and you have to feather the outer edges. If this is correct, I have used this and it works pretty well, it is supposed to be stronger then conventional corner beads, unfortunatly I used it once and can't remember the name or where to get it. I think it was a Kelly Moore Rep that sold it to us, you may want to try them.
