Reinforcing Mild Steel Mesh
What is mild steel reinforcing mesh and what is it used for?
Mild steel reinforcing mesh is a general-purpose mesh that is used for a wide range of applications due to its strength and durability and is sometimes referred to as welded fabric.
The mild steel mesh is immersed into concrete, as the concrete sets and begins to dry it grips the reinforcing bars tightly allowing stresses to be transmitted between the two materials; the coefficient of thermal expansion of steel is very close to that of concrete, reducing internal stresses caused by changes in temperature.
Reinforced steel mesh is used heavily in the construction industry, to strengthen concrete slabs and reduce cracking.
Our stock of reinforcing mesh is supplied in B500B grade mild steel sheet with a mill finish in a wide choice of dimension.
B500B grade mild steel has good weldability formability properties.
