Does plastering with Steel Mesh improve its Durability?
Plastering with Steel Mesh helps to avoid cracks on the plaster surface. It should be placed at the following places, where the possibility of crack development are high:
- Joint of RCC and brickwork – due to improper construction practices, sometimes the adhesion between the types of material is not strong and results in long cracks along the joint.
- Over concealed conduits – if you are going for concealed electrical wiring, I suggest that you place mesh over the grooves cut in the wall after putting in the conduit pipes. If not done, there are high chances of cracks developing along with the cut…
Plastering with steel mesh, where the is Joints between two different surface, for example, RCC and blockwork is very important, It reinforces the plaster and reduces minor cracks in plaster which relatively increase the life of the structure.
Because the mesh is as reinforcing the material, plaster mesh is used for building internal and external decoration, especially in Joint of RCC and brickwork and Over concealed conduits plastering work.
Plastering with steel mesh protects the plaster layer surface from cracking and increases the strength of the plaster layer. Meanwhile plastering mesh provides a better grip with plaster wall and forms the skeleton layers of the wall plaster and putty, thereby significantly strengthening the plaster layer and significantly extending its service life. Due to its strength and durability
