Quality Gatex G160 Classic fiberglass mesh comes in rolls with a length of 50m and a height of 1m, weighing: 160g/m2. Gatex G160 Classic is designed to produce a reinforcing layer for under-plasters. G160 Standard fiberglass mesh is an essential element of the insulation system, which with its technical parameters reduces thermal deformation. It protects against mechanical damage to which the insulation system is subject during use. Applying fiberglass mesh allows creating a durable base under a layer of plaster. It prevents the formation of scratches and cracks on the facade layers. G160 Classic offers strong and stable fiber weaves creating a mesh, regular size of mesh openings ensures dimensional stability, quick and easy installation as well as high mechanical resistance.
The Gatex G160 Classic fiberglass reinforcement mesh is laid on top of an initial layer of smoothing adhesive (min.2-3 mm). The mesh should be unrolled from top to bottom, embedding it with the help of a float (spatula), while taking care to overlap by at least 10 cm and avoiding the formation of folds and bubbles. The process should proceed with a further layer of smoothing adhesive. The bets of the mesh cannot coincide with the joints between the panels. In the case of corner holes in the walls (e.g. windows) should sink further cuts diagonally across the grid with dimensions of about 20×30 cm.
