Basalt net, have questions!
Has anyone ever reinforced the brickwork with basalt mesh instead of metal? And in general, is it necessary to reinforce the laying of the grid? And how do basalt nets of different manufacturers differ?

Previously, more often reinforced masonry metal mesh. Now basalt. But they say it can be forged by brands such as GRIDEX, NEOGRID, LIGRIL. It's easy to distinguish a fake, fluff the edge of the mesh and look at the fiber, the basalt will be cast in a greenish tinge, and the glass will be white. Here about the basalt reinforcing mesh is written a lot

I know now there are new models of basalt mesh. They differ from basic varieties by the presence of an acrylate coating. A thin, invisible film significantly increases the adhesion of the mesh to concrete mortar or cement-polymer adhesive, which is used for laying lightweight wall blocks. Try this, suddenly like it, tell me later.

I worked with a reinforcing basalt mesh, it is lighter than metal and much cheaper. Everything costs well. I will continue to work with her.
