Calsitherm Climate Board Reinforcing Mesh
Prevention of cracking caused by movement and drying of the finishing plaster
Use it on
Calsitherm smoothing plaster
As with all plaster types and applications, a mesh provides additional strength to the plaster. All wall surfaces including those insulated with Calsitherm Climate Boards will need to be resistant to stresses from every day life such as impact and movement. When reinforcing mesh is embedded into the plaster the mechanical strength of the plaster is improved and damage from impacts or movement in the building is greatly reduced.
Where to use it
Calsitherm Reinforcing Mesh should be embedded between two layers of Calsitherm Smoothing Plaster.
What it does
When embedded within plaster the fibreglass reinforcing mesh provides protection for the surface well into the future.
How it works
The mesh provides mechanical strength and stability which improves the plaster’s ability to resist cracking from movement or impact.
Why we love it
It ensures a perfect long lasting finish is maintained on top of Calsitherm Climate Boards.

Key Technical Data
How to Install
Calsitherm Reinforcing Mesh must be embedded within Calsitherm Smoothing Plaster. It should be embedded between the first and second coat with each layer being up to 2mm thick.
Hints & Tips
The mesh should be applied immediately to wet plaster. The top coat of plaster should be applied once the previous layer (with the mesh on top) has lost its wet and shiny appearance.
