EIFS Reinforcing Mesh

EIFS Reinforcing Mesh

Finestone Reinforcing Meshes are balanced, open-weave glass, fiber reinforcing mesh, twisted multi-end strands treated for compatibility with Finestone base coats.

A variety of Finestone Reinforcing Meshes types are available to meet the different requirements of impact resistance at specific wall locations. Finestone Reinforcing Meshes conform to MIL-Y-114OG.


FEATURES

BENEFITS

​Alkali resistance; compatible with all Finestone base coats

​Maintains tensile strength and flexibility for long-term durability

​STANDARD MESH:
4 ounce/yd² mesh; rated as "Standard Impact Resistance" per EIMA Standard 101.86

​A single-layer application of STANDARD MESH provides reinforcement for wall system areas not expected to receive abnormal abuse or traffic.

​INTERMEDIATE 6:
5.6 oz/yd²; rated as "Standard Impact Resistance" per EIMA Standard 101.86.

​A single-layer application of INTERMEDIATE 6 provides reinforcement for wall system areas not expected to receive abnormal abuse or traffic.

​INTERMEDIATE 12:
11 oz/yd²; rated as "Medium Impact Resistance" per EIMA Standard 101.86. INTERMEDIATE 12 in combination with STANDARD MESH yield a rating of "High Impact Resistance" per EIMA Standard 101.86.

​INTERMEDIATE 12 is a versatile, intermediate weight mesh. While capable of being used for a complete single-layer application, it is often used in conjunction with STANDARD MESH or INTERMEDIATE 6 to offer added impact resistance at specific areas (i.e. around doors or walkways).

​STRONG 15:
15 oz/yd²; rated as "Ultra High Impact Resistance" when per EIMA Standard 101.86 when used in combination with STANDARD MESH.

​STRONG 15 is a medium/heavy-weight mesh intended for areas expected to receive traffic and abuse. (It requires a continuous and lapped overlay of STANDARD MESH or INTERMEDIATE 6.)

​HI-IMPACT 20:
20 oz/yd²; rated as "Ultra High Impact Resistance" per EIMA Standard 101.86 when used in combination with STANDARD MESH

​HI-IMPACT 20 is a heavy-weight mesh intended for areas expected to receive a high degree of traffic and abuse. (It requires a continuous and overlapped layer of STANDARD MESH or INTERMEDIATE 6.)

​CORNER MESH:
9.0 oz/yd²; pre-marked for easy bending.

​CORNER MESH is an intermediate-weight mesh for use at exterior corners when added impact resistance or clean, crisp corners are desired. An overlay of STANDARD MESH, INTERMEDIATE 6 or 12 is required when CORNER MESH is used.

Uses

FINESTONE STANDARD REINFORCING MESH is required for use with all Pebbletex Wall Systems, Finestone Stucco Wall Systems, Finescreen Cement-Board Stucco Systems, and for EPS shapes on Finestone Stucco Wall Systems that use either EPS or polyisocyanurate insulation boards and for use over EPS shapes on all Finestone Wall Systems.

STANDARD MESH and INTERMEDIATE 6 are also optional reinforcing enhancements for Finestone Stucco Plus and Finestone Stucco Ultra Wall System.

SELF-ADHERING REINFORCING MESH TAPE is used with FINESTOP air/water-resistive barrier as reinforcement over acceptable sheathing joints, rough openings and at terminations.

SHEATHING FABRIC is used with FINESTOP RA air/water-resistive barrier as reinforcement over acceptable sheathing joints, rough openings and at terminations.

Also used for above ground applications with all Finestone Surfacing Systems.
