Description: Baumit OpenTex, is an easy to use, SBR coated, fibre glass reinforcing mesh with a 4 x 4mm mesh size. It is designed for use with contact mortars and masonry base coat renders/plasters and can be used in all locations.

- reinforcing base coat renders and plasters when on mixed masonry.

- reinforcing corners of window and door openings to prevent cracking.

- use with MC55 as a reinforcement coat.

Application: Baumit OpenTex is bedded in to a wet render/plaster. When reinforcing a thick-coat base coat this is done wet-in-wet by applying 2/3rds of the render and whilst wet trowelling in the OpenTex. The final third of the render should be applied immediately. Each piece of OpenTex should overlap adjacent pieces by at least 100mm in all directions.

When applying to thin layer renders, again using a wet-in-wet process, the render should be combed first to ensure the correct thickness and then the OpenTex trowelled in to it. A further 1-3mm of render should be applied over the OpenTex to ensure the correct bedded depth. The render should be between 3 and 8mm in thickness depending on substrate and render.

When using as corner reinforcement in thin layer renders, strip of mesh which are at least 300 x 300mm square should be diagonally applied in a tight coat of contact mortar, such as MC55, to the corners of openings before the main areas are rendered. If using a thick-coat render then this can be applied, as above, in with the render coat.
