Expanded Metal Lath Description

Expanded metal lath works as an essential foundation for pasting the stucco cementitious membrane onto the walls and ceilings of a building. It makes the stucco stick onto the open frame or sheathed construction.

There are 3 basic weight standards for expanded metal lath, 1.75, 2.5, and 3.5. 2.5 weight standard of expanded metal lath is most common type. Sheet dimension of expanded metal lath can be 27 inches wide and 8 feet in length, This type of lath offers effective wall reinforcement and helps prevent cracking by improving plaster bonding and enhancing crack resistance, making it a popular choice for wall and ceiling plastering in building construction and renovation projects.

Expanded Metal Lath Production

Expanded Metal Lath is manufactured using a cold-rolling process. The metal sheet is first cut to the desired size, then fed into a press that punches and stretches the sheet, creating diamond-shaped patterns.

Expanded metal lath is produced from metal sheet, which is first cut into required dimension, then use the expanding machine to stretch the sheet with diamond-shaped patterns. After expanding the finished expanded metal mesh is not flat, flattening would make the sheet with uniform thickness and improve tensile strength.  

Expanded Metal Lath Application

Expanded Metal Lath is a versatile material used in a variety of applications in the construction industry. Its high tensile strength and durability make it an ideal material for reinforcing stucco and plaster finishes on exterior and interior walls, ceilings, and other surfaces.

Expanded Metal Lath Application
  • Stucco is a popular exterior finish used in many construction projects, and Expanded Metal Lath is an essential component of stucco finishes. It is used as a reinforcement layer to provide additional strength and stability to the stucco, preventing it from cracking and breaking over time. Expanded metal lath
  • Plaster finishes on interior walls and ceilings also require a reinforcement layer to ensure durability and prevent cracking. Expanded Metal Lath is an ideal material for plaster reinforcement due to its flexibility and easy installation process.
