Steel reinforcing mesh is a general purpose mesh that is used universally for a wide range of applications due to it's strength and durability and is sometimes referred to as welded fabric. The mesh is immersed into concrete as the concrete sets and dries out it then grips the reinforcing bars tightly allowing stresses to be transmitted between the two materials, these can then take some tensile loads and reduce bending. The coefficient of thermal expansion of steel is very close to that of concrete, reducing internal stresses caused by changed in temperature. Reinforced steel mesh is used heavily in the construction industry, to strengthen concrete slabs and limit cracking.
The reinforcing steel mesh is stocked in three grades A142, A193, and A252.
