Priming, Bonding and Waterproofing
Information ARDEX ARDICOAT™ MESH
ARDEX ARDICOAT MESH is a highly flexible treated glass fiber mesh that reinforces ARDEX ARDICOAT PLUS waterproofing compound. Embedding this mesh into the freshly applied waterproofing compound helps to minimize telegraphing of dormant cracks, and also reinforces critical transitions where building materials change planes. Typical uses are over dormant cracks as well as floor to wall and wall to wall transitions on commercial and institutional applications.
- Highly flexible
- Alkali resistant
- Increases the tensile strength of the ARDEX ARDICOAT PLUS system
- Easy to use – embed directly into waterproofing

Technical Data ARDEX ARDICOAT™ MESH
First apply the ARDEX ARDICOAT PLUS waterproofing to the prepared substrate as recommended in the technical brochure. While the waterproofing is still fresh, lay the ARDEX ARDICOAT MESH into the waterproofing compound and work the mesh in with a steel trowel, making sure the mesh is completely encapsulated. Smooth out any wrinkles making sure the mesh remains completely covered.
At joints, make sure to overlap the mesh by a minimum width of 2 1/2” (64 mm). Reinforce corners and floor-wall transitions with 2 coats of mesh. For full width applications, start by placing the mesh at the top and working down.
Always store the mesh lying flat, never on end. This product is intended to be used over dormant crack and transitions to help ensure waterproofing is continuous.
