Tips on Using Fiberglass Mesh Tape for Plastering:
Most manufacturers recommend the placement of meshes somewhere in the middle third of the stucco/plaster thickness.
Generally speaking, the nearer the mesh to the substrate, the better.
There is no need for mechanical fixing. The fiberglass tape is layed between two successive layers of the cement mix. A minimum overlap of 10cm between two adjacent layers of the mesh is indispensable.
Utmost care should be taken to avoid blister and crease formation. The mesh fabric is pressed gently from the top to the bottom in the fresh plaster.
Main uses of alkali resistant fiberglass mesh tape fabrics:
They are used to reinforce plasters/stuccos and prevent cracking in cases such as:
* EIFS or ETICS
* above insulation materials
* above wire channels
* diagonally above doors and windows
* joints between heterogenous materials
* screeds over sound insulation materials of floor heating systems.
Finally they are used to increase the impact resistance of rendering in public building.
