Non-corrosive replacement of steel wire mesh
LIGHTmesh is a guarantee of your house durability!
TM LIGHTmesh GFRP mesh is a composite polymer mesh based on glass fiber and epoxy resin!Unique construction properties of reinforcement mesh made it No. 1 in the world of brick and floor reinforcement!
LIGHTmesh GFRP mesh is fiberglass mesh based onglass fiber and epoxy resine. It replaces steel wire mesh and is available in coils, non-corrosive, 5 times lighter than steel, 2 times stronger than steel, conducts no heat. Available sizes: 50x50 and 100x100 with diameter ranging 2-4 mm. GFRP mesh with a smaller diameter can substitute steel wire mesh!
Durability of your construction is LIGHTmesh GFRP mesh!
Due to the fact that GFRP rebar is 2-2.5 times stronger at break, GFRP rebar with a smaller diameter can substitute steel bars:
|GFRP LIGHTmesh||Steel wire mesh||Properties||Steel wire mesh||GFRP LIGHTmesh|
|2 mm||3 mm||ultimate tensile strength||550-570 МPа||800-1300 МPа|
|3 mm||5 mm||width||0,38 – 1 m||0,38 – 1,2 m|
|4 mm||6 mm||bar breaking strength||400-720 kgf||600-950 kgf|
|thermal conductivity ratio||56 W/(m0°C)||0.35 W/(m0°C)|
|linear expansion ration||13-15 ах-5//°C||9-12 ах-5//°C|
|square unit weight||2220 kg/m3||360 kg/m3|
|electrical conductivity||highly conductive||non-conductive|
|resistance to aggressive environment||corrosible and low resistant||corrosion and acid resistant|
|Diameter mesh||Total quantity in a coil/roll||Coil/roll diameter||Coil/roll weight|
|2 mm||60 m2||0,65 m||до 15 kg|
|3 mm||60 m2||0,65 m||до 25 kg|
|4 mm||60 m2||0,70 m||до 32 kg|
Since steel wire mesh is delivered in sheets and has much weight, then a truck or lorry with high loading capacity will be required for transportation, it will also require several loaders or handlers if the purpose is to load and unload quickly.
At the same time, GFRP mesh LIGHTmesh delivery will require just a car with low loading capacity, since GFRP mesh weight is 9 times lower than of steel wire mesh! It will also require 1 person for fast loading and unloading, as GFRP mesh is delivered in coils and such a coil of 60 sq. m. can be easily lifted even by a child. As a result, delivery turns out to be significantly cost effective and easy!
LIGHTmesh GFRP mesh with sand coating is 2 times safer and more reliable! Moreover, it is corrosion resistant, conducts no heat, it is 5 times lighter, delivered in coils, it is radio transparent, more cost effective, it has the same expansion module as concrete, conducts no electricity, it is much stronger at break.
