- Greatly reduces cracking that can arise from thermal
stresses. This enhances resistance to water penetration,
as cracks are controlled.
- Increases lateral flexural strength.
- Bonds exterior and interior masonry wythes together in composite or cavity walls. Also bonds masonry at
intersecting walls and corners
- Increases elasticity and performance of masonry walls
under various stresses
- Butt-welding of cross rods to longitudinal rods
(not more than 16”o.c.). This construction enhances
bonding capabilities, eliminates projection of cross
rods beyond the specified width of reinforcement, and prevents excessive build up of wire in limited mortar joints
- Continuous deformation along each longitudinal rod for superior bonding performance
