Standard Mesh
Standard Duty Reinforcing Fiberglass Mesh (4.3 oz)

450 ft² (41.8 m²) per roll (38")


Standard Mesh is an alkaline coated fiberglass fabric which is suitable to work as reinforcement for polymer modified and polymer-based cementitious base coats, and used as the minimum grade reinforcing mesh layer in all Durex® EIFS Systems (with the exception of mechanically fastened EIFS systems) and Durex® Stucco Lite System. Standard Mesh is produced on a loom using warp and weft (fill) yarns and woven into a leno weave, where the fill yarns are trapped tightly between to twisting wrap yarns, and is then treated by alkali-resistant macromolecule latex for superior performance. Standard mesh is available in two forms, Regular and Adhesive and in various roll widths.

  • Fiberglass mesh of tested quality, capable of withstanding high tension without stretching.
  • Glass fibers with negligible sensitivity to temperature changes within the wall.
  • Proper fiberglass anti-alkaline dressing to avoid quick aging of the wall reinforcement due to corrosion action of alkalis present in coating mortar.
  • Provides dimensional stability and enhances performance.
  • Prevents cracking.
  • Good cohesion.
  • Highly flexible.

Standard Reinforcement Mesh for the base coat layer in all chemically adhered Durex® EIFS Systems. Standard Reinforcement Mesh for Durex® Stucco Lite System. Standard Reinforcement of EctoFlex Air/Vapour barrier and Waterproofing Membrane. Reinforcement for crack bridging in masonry substrates. Upgraded Reinforcement for our Trim Coat use to coat Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Architectural Mouldings and Build-outs.
