Fiberglass mesh is cheap material that does not burn and is characterized by both low weight and high strength. These properties allow it to be successfully used in the formation of plaster facades, as well as use on internal wall and ceiling surfaces. This material is widely used for fastening the surface layer at the corners of the room.
Most widely used standard fiberglass plater mesh is the density of 145g/m2 and 165g/m2 for exterior cladding and facade work. Resistant to alkalis, does not decompose and will not rust over time, it does not emit toxic and harmful substances, has a high resistance to tearing and stretching, protects the surface from cracking and improves its mechanical strength. Easy to handle and use.
Application of Fiberglass Mesh
Fiberglass mesh is used to strengthen the surface of the plaster layer all kinds of buildings.
This mesh reinforced liquid waterproofing layers slabs and roofs.
Fiberglass mesh used to impart mechanical strength filler floor coverings that are different self-leveling properties.
Application of glass fiber mesh contributes to strengthening plaster, and the bases used for laying ceramic tiles.
VERY HIGH STRENGTH AND ELASTICITY FIBERGLASS SELF-ADHESIVE TAPE
Fiberglass Self Adhesive Tapefiberglass self adhesive tape has a mesh structure and uniformly applied adhesive system. It is easy to attach it to any surface, and allows high-quality and fast operation even to non-professionals. We can cut off a piece from a roll to required length, and paste it on the seam, just press it.
The special fiberglass tape is used to prevent the formation of cracks and surface hardening. It is used for gluing joints, corners, ceilings, gluing joints and places of contiguity.
the junction of gypsum board, particle board, hardboard and other sheet materials;
gluing joints between the door and window frames to the walls;
sizing of cracks, corners and joints in concrete, plaster surfaces;
for continuous reinforcement of walls and ceilings.
Note: before applying adhesive to prepare the surface. Surface preparation is to clean it from dust and dirt. If there is a need to make sanding.
Features and Benefits:
Increases the strength of coatings, resistance to alkalis, does not rust , is not subject to decay, prevents cracking.
High-quality adhesive composition;
Compatible with all types of fillers and plasters;
Take on the burden associated with the constant changes in temperature and humidity ;
What’s the Difference between Fibreglass Matting andFibreglassChopped Strand ?
When you are starting a project, it is important to have the correct materials, to ensure they do the job, and produce a high quality finish. There is often some confusion when it comes to fibreglassing as to what products should be used.
A common question is what is the difference between fiberglass matting, and fiberglass chopped strands ? This is a common misconception, as they are actually the same thing, and equal in their properties, you generally may see it advertised as Chopped Strand Mat.
Chopped strand mat, or CSM is a form of reinforcement used in fiberglass consisting of glass fibers laid unsystematically across each other and then held together by a resin binder.
Chopped strand mat is typically processed using the hand lay-up technique, where sheets of material are placed in a mold and brushed with resin. Once the resin cures, the hardened product can be taken from the mold and finished.
Chopped strand mat has many uses, as well as advantages, over alternative fibreglass products, these include:
Adaptability - because the binder dissolves in resin, the material easily conforms to different shapes when wetted out. Chopped strand mat is much easier to conform to tight curves, and corners than with a weaved fabric.
Cost -Chopped strand mat is the least expensive fiberglass, and is often used in projects where thickness is needed as the layers can be built up.
Prevents Print Through -Mat is, often used as the first layer (before the gelcoat) in a laminate to prevent print through (this is when the fabric weave pattern shows through the resin).
It is important to note that Chopped Strand mat does not have much strength. If you need strength for your project you should choose a woven cloth or you could mix the two. Mat however can be used between layers of woven fabric to help build thickness quickly, and aid in all layers bonding well together.
