    Manufacture of the material with other physical and mechanical properties is accepted upon agreeing about with a consumer.

     

  • Typical application:

    BENSTEN 125/1100

    • reinforcement of plaster- and putty coatings during interior finishing;
    • manufacture of corner reinforcements with mesh for reinforcement in corner areas of building facades in ETICS.

     

    BENSTEN 140/1400, BENSTEN 150/1800, BENSTEN 160/2000:

    • reinforcement of plaster- and putty coatings during construction or repair of various-purpose buildings and facilities. BENSTEN 160/2000 is used in ETICS as well.

     

    BENSTEN 320/3600

    • reinforcement of plaster coatings during construction or repair of underground sections of buildings
    • reinforcement of cement screed surfaces, which includes poured-in-place floors
    • reinforcement of a brick work setting.
    • preventing origination of cracks caused by changes in temperature or humidity and by physical impact

    • equality in strength both warp-wise and weft-wise due to warp-knitting method of manufacturing, so that crack formation is prevented with equal force warp-wise and weft-wise, and delay in sensing tensile forces is excluded

    • extended service life of buildings and facilities without renovation.
