Main purpose

Helps prevent micro cracks in the finished plaster.

Use it on

Embedded in Argacem HP and Argatherm top coats.

Overview

Polites 80 is a fiberglass mesh used as reinforcement for Argacem finishing plasters to prevent cracks caused by the settlement of the substrate below. It provides adequate capacity to withstand impact and counteract the stresses due to thermal shock & curing, thus preventing the formation of cracks on Argacem HP finishing plaster. It is also suitable with smoothers applied on panels for thermal and acoustic insulation. It is supplied in 1.00m x 50m rolls (white colour).

Where to use it

Polites 80 should always be used locally at all stress points (corners of openings, around power sockets/boxes, over conduits etc) embedded within Argacem HP.
