Application

Should be applied to the base coat, ensuring that adjacent strips overlap by at least 100 mm. Used for the following:

  • To reinforce the smoothing coat applied on plasters or the base coat applied on thermal insulation panels before applying the finish.
  • Waterproofing mortars, such as AQUAZIP.

The formation of bubbles and folds should be avoided. Consult manufacturer's literature for further details of application and installation.

Description

Reinforcing mesh, made from weaving high quality fibreglass yarn which undergoes treatment with impregnation.

Features and benefits:

  • Alkali resistant.
  • Ensures systems are resistant to knocks.
  • Resists stress due to temperature changes and shrinkage.
  • Reduces the risk of formation of hairline cracks or fissures on the facade that could impair the tightness of the membrane.
  • Can be embedded at a 45° angle on the corners of door and window openings as reinforcement in the points where there is maximum concentration of stress.
  • Can be used in conjunction with various Fassa systems.

Applications:

Should be applied to the base coat, ensuring that adjacent strips overlap by at least 100 mm. Used for the following:

  • To reinforce the smoothing coat applied on plasters or the base coat applied on thermal insulation panels before applying the finish.
