High Zirconia Alkali-Resistant Fiberglass Net strengthens the concrete and helps prevent cracking from shrinkage. When both chopped fibers and fiberglass net are used together in a concrete countertop application, steel re-bar and/or mesh are no longer required. Two layers of fiberglass net, one at the top and one on the bottom, are required for complete reinforcement. Two times the length is the appropriate amount of fiberglass net needed for any countertop project. Our fiberglass net is 40 in. or 1 meter wide.
For protection against cracking and concrete shrinkage, use fiberglass net alongside our Chopped Concrete Fiber. For an all-in-one, glass fiber reinforced countertop ready-mix, add one packet of DCI Concrete Countertop Admix to every 80lb. bag of 5000psi countertop mix.
