Joints between different materials
Meshes for joints
When materials having different coefficient of expansion come into contact, the coating undergoes serious risks of cracking. To absorb the tension the application of a strip of ﬁber glass mesh over the joint is recommended. Lay the mesh cut in strips on the fresch coat all along the joint from top downwards. The mesh must be embedded in material by using a putty knife avoiding creases and blisters.
