The fiberglass mesh is made of fiberglass and epoxy resin, so it is much easier and convenient metal in use. The grid is an indispensable building material. Fiberglass mesh is a bars — bonded with each other, which form a very solid to all kinds of mechanical and chemical influences bars. Application of composite mesh in 2 times reduces the formation of cracks. Widely used in the construction of roads, buildings of brick and stone, all kinds of floors, as well as casting concrete floors. High temperatures and an excessive amount of moisture is not afraid to fiberglass or basaltic grid, in contrast to its metal counterpart.
fiberglass unlike metal exhibits excellent resistance to oxidation and corrosion from exposure to humid microclimate salts or chemicals. Due to this, thus enhancing the durability of the concrete slab, reinforced with a composite mesh
during research, it was determined that the net composite strength 3-4 times greater than a similar diameter of the metal mesh. Due to this, fiberglass mesh has a higher tensile strength and can withstand a greater load on the bending and stretching. Furthermore, granular coating that is applied to the mesh surface in the manufacturing process, provides high adhesion strength with concrete
the thermal conductivity of the composite fittings is approximately 100 times less than the warm-metal, and is 0.46 W / m². Thus, a composite mesh may be used to prevent the formation of «cold joints» within the structure
when compared to metal and composite grid of the same size, the composite net weight 6 times lighter than its metal counterpart, which greatly simplifies the construction and assembly works
Mason’s net — an extremely durable material that does not lose its properties for a long time. According to research by British scientists, the 100-year period of declining strength composite reinforcement ratio is 1.25, ie the strength of the material is maintained at 79.6% of the original level
Also masonry fiberglass mesh is not electrified, it is not magnetized, has excellent resistance to vibrations and maintains its shape even during the destruction of the concrete structure, slowing thus further destruction of the concrete.
Thanks to the unique properties of composite reinforcement, it can be used in virtually all areas of construction. The most justifiable use of fiberglass masonry grid in wet conditions, while creating facilities for chemical production and waste water treatment and hydraulic works, but mesh reinforcement Armplast well proven in other types of construction industry:
The grid-based Armplast — fiberglass and basalt rods of circular cross section, which are arranged perpendicular to each other and firmly fixed to each other at the connection points. The cells in the grid square mostly minimum size — 50×50 mm, and products produced but with larger cells. Composite mesh is usually made in the form of rolls or cards (sheets). mesh width can be up to 2 meters, while the length can be any.
Masonry grid Armplast has all the necessary permits, the production process is certified in accordance with international standards ISO 9001: 2008 by TUV Cert.
Basalt construction mesh used for reinforcement in masonry, plastering and road robot. It is characterized by particularly strong due to the basis of basalt. Basalt mesh compared with the metal has many advantages, since it is composed of solid basalt rock, it is not subject to corrosion and chemical compounds, as well as very durable. The thermal conductivity of basaltic grid is much less than that of metal, so there is no problem with the cold bridges with reinforcement Foam concrete and masonry. It is also worth noting its high resistance to aggressive media, ie basalt construction masonry grid does not responds to the impact of the concrete. Since the composite basalt mesh is lightweight, it is very convenient to carry and cost effective in comparison with their metal counterparts.
