Plaster expanded metal protects wall against cracks and fissures

Expanded metal mesh is most used as a reinforcing material in the interior decoration, and especially when the plastering work, so sometimes referred to as stucco netting. It is manufactured from sheet steel blade which cuts through and uniformly stretched in cells having a diamond shape. So, it has no bends or welds, and is very strong and durable, with a low weight. The ribbed surface makes it has the max. adhesion.

When plastering walls it is used to keep the surface from cracking arising from temperature extremes and humidity fluctuations. It can be used for absolutely all surfaces of concrete and brick to wood, and even plaster ceilings. It must be mounted on a solid dowel-nails or anchor bolts to hold the work was easier.

To create a durable bonding plaster to the wall using various reinforcing mesh. They can be welded, made of galvanized steel wire, woven fiberglass. Each of these materials has its own advantages and disadvantages. But the best currently considered material is the light type expanded metal.

Advantages and benefits of light expanded metal mesh

  • Expanded metal plastering mesh is the perfect combination of qualities such as strength and flexibility and low weight.
  • Compared to welded mesh and woven mesh, it is the structural integrity - no stitches and welds, which greatly simplifies the work with the product during installation and transportation.
  • Can be cut into any shape, while maintaining its strength.
  • Due to its plasticity, it is convenient for mounting on curved and angled surfaces.
  • Can be used in plastering and tiling works on virtually any surface: concrete, brick, plaster, wood.
  • Has maximum grip and is easy to open, easy to handle and use.
  • Unlike plastic and fiberglass mesh, expanded metal sheet has absolute resistance to combustion, and greater durability and resistance to harsh environments and water.

When plastering walls it is used to keep the surface from cracking arising from temperature extremes and humidity fluctuations.

Application:
Expanded metal mesh used in construction as a reinforcing element for plastering and finishing works, as well as the reinforcement reinforcing floors, ceilings and pavements. It protects wall against cracks and fissures due to changes in temperature and humidity, and mechanical stress. The expanded plastering mesh increases the mechanical strength of the reinforced surface, including impact resistance. Installation and operation are very simple.
