Features and usage of Expanded Metal Mesh for construction
Expanded Metal Mesh is used in a wide range of buildings, and even the dedicated Expanded Metal Mesh is used in the corners to protect the corners. So what is the difference between this Expanded Metal Mesh and other conventional products? How is Expanded Metal Mesh used properly?
Expanded Metal Mesh is made of high quality galvanized material with excellent anti-aging, anti-corrosion and anti-rust properties. In addition to the materials, Expanded Metal Mesh's design is also very unique, accurate angular size design, to avoid the concentrated force when the corners are impacted, the external force is evenly distributed to the edge of the surrounding, effectively protecting the integrity of the positive angle.
Expanded Metal Mesh can be divided into punching and expanding. Different processing forms not only facilitate nailing, but also make the corner strips more firmly combined with gypsum board or other bonding materials at the corners. When Expanded Metal Mesh corner construction does not require wood slats, the primary plasterer can also make perfect corner lines, shorten construction time and effectively reduce construction costs.
When Expanded Metal Mesh needs to be used in construction, first cut it to the required length, and apply bonding gypsum at the corner to bond the metal corner strip, or directly screw it to the corner. In this way, the foundation of Expanded Metal Mesh is completed.
Then spread the Expanded Metal Mesh along the male corner onto the joint compound and gently squeeze it to bond it firmly. At the same time, Expanded Metal Mesh is required to cover 100mm wide joint filler on each side and wait until it is dry. Layer joint filler, dry and sand the surface of the joint with sandpaper.
A third layer of joint compound is then applied to Expanded Metal Mesh, but this time it is required to be about 200mm wide on each side and finished when the joint compound is completely dry. It can be seen that the use of Expanded Metal Mesh is simple and convenient for construction.
