Fiberglass mesh is woven by fiberglass yarn and then coated by alkaline resistant latex. It has alkaline resistance, high strength, etc. It is an ideal engineering material in construction. It is mainly used to reinforce cement, stone, wall materials, roofing and so on. Plastering fiber glass mesh is used for reinforcement surfaces during plastering, installation leveling floors, waterproofing, restoration of cracked plaster in order to prevent cracking or fraying of the plaster.
Fiberglass mesh is cheap material that does not burn and is characterized by both low weight and high strength. These properties allow it to be successfully used in the formation of plaster facades, as well as use on internal wall and ceiling surfaces.
This material is widely used for fastening the surface layer at the corners of the room. Most widely used standard fiberglass plaster mesh is the density of 145g/m2 for interior and exterior cladding and facade work. Resistant to alkalis, does not decompose and will not rust over time, it does not emit toxic and harmful substances, has a high resistance to tearing and stretching, protects the surface from cracking and improves its mechanical strength.
Easy to handle and use.

Why You Should Use Fiberglass Mesh for Waterproofing
Fibreglass is crafted from reinforced glass and plastic with resins, which contribute to its strength and structural stability. This is why fibreglass effectively enhances the durability of a structure.
To prevent any moisture or water from seeping into surfaces resulting in ceiling leaks and roof leaks, having a fibreglass roof is known to be an effective method.
It is also easily malleable in comparison to aluminium or steel. You can effectively mould fibreglass into different forms for both commercial applications, which makes it a useful material for a wide range of waterproofing projects.
These are the benefits of glass fibre mesh for waterproofing.
How to Use Fiberglass Mesh for Waterproofing
The application process can take up to one to three days, depending on how large the project is. Before applying the fibreglass mesh to internal wet areas, you have to prepare the area. For this, you are required to clean the area free of debris. After that, use joint sealant/joint fillet on every floor/wall joint, nail/screw heads, and flanges (ensuring penetration flanges are installed properly) Next, install fibreglass mesh, apply flow coat, acrylic coat to walls and wall penetrations.
