Plaster mesh - chicken wire, welded wire and expanded metal
Light expanded metal
As reinforcing material, plaster mesh is used for building internal and external decoration, especially in plastering work. It protects the plaster layer surface from cracking and increases the mechanical strength of the plaster layer. Meanwhile plastering mesh provides a better grip with plaster wall and forms the skeleton layers of the wall plaster and putty, thereby significantly strengthening the plaster layer and significantly extending its service life. Due to its strength and durability, plaster mesh is also successfully used as reinforcing material in strengthening the foundations of buildings, restoration and reinforcement of existing plaster, brickwork, installation of thermal insulation and roofing tile ties, and road laying pavement construction.
We offer the following types of plaster mesh: plastic mesh, fiberglass mesh cloth, welded wire mesh, chain wire mesh, chicken wire, light type expanded metal, and woven wire cloth. These metal mesh all has small square mesh and made from thin wire. Plastering mesh in various kinds allows customers to find exactly the suitable one perfectly meeting special requirements.
When choose plaster mesh, you must take into account its physical and mechanical properties, as well as the purpose. For example, fiberglass cloth for the exterior surface plastering need mesh density of 160 to 300g/sq.m. Expanded metal with rhombic shape mesh hole is successfully applied during underfloor heating installation and holding plastering well. Galvanized plaster metal mesh has high resistance to corrosion. Using galvanized mesh for plaster finishing work can significantly extend the life of the premises.
Welded wire plaster mesh
When using for plastering, plaster layer and the reinforcing metal layer have different thermal expansion coefficient. Therefore, subject to extreme changes in temperature, chicken wire (durable twisted woven mesh) is more acceptable for plastering than welded wire mesh or expanded metal. It has no risk of injury at work. Chicken wire plaster mesh made from 0.6 - 2.0mm wire, mesh size from 13mm to 50mm.
No bent and welded seams, light expanded metal greatly increases the strength and durability at a very low weight. Because its rough surface, it combines well with putty, plaster and waterproofing materials, ensuring high quality and durable plastering coatings for walls and ceilings.
Welded stucco mesh is performed by welding of mild heat treated wire with or with out zinc coating, helping the plaster layer of shrinkage walls avoid cracking. With the feature of high resistance to corrosion, galvanized mesh is more durable.
Plaster woven mesh fabric is a square mesh cloth made from galvanized or non-galvanized low carbon treated wire (diameter 0.5mm -1.5mm). It includes black woven mesh and galvanized mesh cloth. Woven plaster mesh is mainly used for reinforcement roughing plastering. It can prevent cracks from shrinkage and increase the strength of the walls.
Chain link mesh with maximum density 3000g/m2 is useful for plastering facade structures. With high strength, it is not affected by adverse factors. While, For interior plastering, you can use mesh with a density of 1300g/m2 ( mesh size 10mm × 10mm, 15mm × 15mm).
Chain link fence
As a great alternative to metal plaster mesh, plastic mesh is suitable for using on large wall surfaces to reinforce a thick plaster layer. It will be an excellent surface protection from cracking. plastic mesh netting is ideal for fast-drying the mixture.
Fiberglass cloth has the features of anti-corrosion, resistance to alkalis, light weight. In general, fiberglass mesh exterior plastering helps to overcome stress caused by humidity and extreme temperature changes. It has a high resistance to stretching and tearing, protects the surface from cracking, improves the mechanical strength. Using it helps plaster perfectly evenly.
Mesh plastering easily handled and mounted on brick, plaster, concrete, wood and even embossed surfaces. Plastic and fiberglass mesh is fixed to the target surface often by adhesive, or base construction stapler. Metal mesh was fixed to a wall surface often using nails, screws and metal sheet piece.
All of our plater mesh is delivered in rolls and can have different sizes. You can contact us to buy plaster metal mesh in wholesale and retail. We will give you an extensive range of products at competitive prices, and the price depends on the materials, mesh size and the presence of the galvanized layer.
Chicken wire with strong hexagonal twist struction is more acceptable than welded wire mesh or expanded metal for plastering when extreme changes in temperature
Chicken wire fence is broadly used for feeding chicken, rabbits, ducks, geese, dogs; also used in gardens, farmlands for prevent gophers from damaging plants.
Light expanded metal with a low weight and maximum grip to plaster layer - no bends or welds - is the best considered plastering material.
Welded wire plaster mesh makes plaster wall surface smooth no crack, excludes the impact of external factors on the wall, 0.4 -1.5mm wire, mesh size 10 - 50mm.
The rock wool board thin plastering is to prevent the exterior wall insulation fire. Welded wire mesh and alkali resistant fiberglass mesh are the reinforced layers.
Galvanized welded wire mesh and fiberglass mesh are used for exterior wall anti-cracks. The experiment for both materials help us to know more about the performance.
The exterior wall insulation system has cracks for some construction issues. The fiberglass mesh and galvanized welded wire mesh can prevent the cracks effectively.
Nowadays the waterproof system is important for the architecture and the waterproof materials are hot dipped welded wire mesh and fiberglass grid.
The expanded metal and fiberglass mesh are used as plastering layer to reinforce the frame structure wall and prevent the wall cracks and cavity.
The steel mesh and galvanized expanded metal as plaster layer are widely used to prevent cracks and other construction problems due to the engineering issues.
