Plaster mesh is used to reinforce interior and exterior plaster work. It protects against cracking while increasing strength and forming a skeleton for plaster to grip to. Plasterers’ mesh can be composed of either metal or fibreglass depending on type of use. For example, when plasterwork is liable to encounter extremes of temperature, chicken wire may be the smart choice owing to its structure.
Focus on Fibreglass
Fibreglass is alkali-resistant and lightweight, making it ideal for interior plastering use. Whether you’re using fibreglass for taping plasterboard joins or repairing cracks in existing plaster, fibreglass plasterers’ mesh will not rip or tear and is anti-corrosive. This kind of mesh can also be easily attached to a wall using staples or plaster to hold it in place.
