Expanded Metal is the major material for production of high ribbed formwork. With hot dipped galvanized steel sheet, this kind of formwork offers good strength and corrosion resistance. High ribbed formwork has expanded meshes and U patterns and it offers better anti-stress capability and forming flexibility than normal metal lath.
Rib lath has stiffening V ribs providing good strength for its tensile force. Reinforced by longitudinal ribs, the metal lath gives a uniform coat depth for large areas.
Materials: Galvanized steel or stainless steel expanded metal.
Application: Expanded metal lath with ribs provides an excellent plaster base. It's ideal for providing a high degree key of mechanical bonding with plaster or render. Widely used as a background for plaster, render, stucco application in construction of suspended ceilings partition.
