Plasters and renders need a helping hand to bond to their surfaces effectively and maintain structural integrity. Given that they are made of small grains or particles, plasters and renders have low tensile strength; when applied in a liquid state, they can’t keep themselves up without something to hold onto.
Fibreglass mesh is, perhaps, the most versatile form of mesh as it can be used internally or externally, offers flexibility, won’t rust and discolour your render, and provides a solid barrier against pests and even mildew. While it doesn’t have the increased strength of metal mesh, it can be a little tricky to work with, and hence requires gloves.
