This strong rendering mesh is an integral component of render-only systems. The rendering mesh is embedded into Monocouche or our EWI-269 Lightweight Basecoat – this ensures the final render system is strong enough to withstand impact but also flexible, so it will be able to withstand natural building movements that occur during the different seasons.
The rendering mesh can also be used in areas that need additional strengthening. For example, stress patches can be cut from the roll (300mm x 200mm) that are put 45 degrees to each corner of an opening. In traditional sand and cement areas, these areas are particularly likely to crack. The addition of a stress patch in these areas ensures the system will remain crack-free long into the future.
When using the Blue Rendering Mesh, ensure that each strip overlaps the last when embedding it within the render or basecoat. There is a black marker printed on the mesh that indicates the overlap required. You can also ‘double-mesh’ if an area requires particular strengthening above and beyond our normal render systems. In order to do this, initially embed the mesh in vertical strips down the wall. Then embed the second layer of mesh at 90 degrees to this. In order to embed both layers of rendering mesh within the adhesive, you may need to make the basecoat layer slightly thicker.
The primary purpose of the rendering mesh is to be used within the basecoat layer of either render systems or EWI systems, but it can be used to bridge cracks externally/internally or for giving extra strength to floor screeds as well as plastered ceilings. The EWI-66642 Blue Rendering Mesh is coated with acrylic acid copolymer liquid, making it water, alkali and age resistant.
