Heavy Duty Reinforcing Layer

Durability and resiliency can be built into the system with layers of base coat and reinforcing mesh.  Heavy duty reinforcing mesh, embedded into base coat, is recommended at grade and any location where impact is expected.  How tough is it?

Heavy reinforcing meshes are too stiff to overlap so edges must be butted together.  A second layer of base coat and mesh is always installed over the tough mesh to increase impact resistance and prevent cracking at the mesh butt joints.
