A reinforcing mesh which is made from woven fibreglass yarns and coated with an alkaline resistant latex. This coating prevents the alkaline present in cements from degrading the glass fibre, resulting in reduced strength.
The mesh is ideal for use in construction and is mainly used to reinforce concrete, cement, screeds, renders and plasters.
It is an ideal reinforcement for render, even where cracking can be seen and allows previously uneven masonry substrates to be rendered.
The majority of manufactures recommend the placement of meshes to be within the first 50% of the render / plaster depth. In general, the nearer the mesh to the substrate, the better.
