Diasen Polites 140 Reinforcing Mesh
To prevent cracks of Diathonite over inconsistent substrates or caused by the settlement of the background substrate and to improve adhesion over several kind of materials.
Use it on
Embedded within Diathonite plasters.
Polites 140 is a fiberglass mesh used as reinforcement for Diathonite plasters to prevent cracks over inconsistent backgrounds, or those caused by the settlement of the substrate below. It provides adequate capacity to withstand impact, to counteract the stresses due to thermal shock and curing, thus preventing the formation of cracks on the Diathonite plaster. Polites 140 is supplied in 1.0m x 50m rolls (orange colour).
Where to use it
Diasen Polites 140 should always be used when Diathonite plasters exceed 60mm thickness, embedded in the middle of the total thickness.
It should also always be used locally at stress points such as the corners of openings, around power sockets/boxes, over conduits etc.

Installation GuideFind an installer
How to Install
- Apply Diathonite insulating plaster following its Installation Guide
- When half the total thickness of Diathonite has been installed (and is still wet), apply the Polites 140 mesh
- Overlap each piece of mesh by 30mm and ensure the entire area is covered in mesh with no gaps
- When the Diathonite has dried sufficiently (approx. 24-48 hours later) begin application of the remaining thickness of Diathonite
- Over unstable substrates, it is recommended to fix the mesh with suitable fixings or nails.
Hints & Tips
- Polites 140 must be stored in well ventilated areas, away from sunlight, water and ice, at temperatures between +1° Celsius and +35° celsius.
- Do not apply at environmental temperature or at support temperature lower than +1°C and higher than +35°C
- During summer season apply the product in the cooler hours of the day, away from sun.
- Do not apply with imminent threat of rainwater or ice. Follow the instructions on the technical data sheet of the Diathonite plaster which Polites-140 mesh is combined with.
