8.Expanded Metal or Wire Mesh Rebars
Expanded metal or wire mesh reinforcement is another good product for concrete. Expanded metal is made by shearing a sheet of steel into parallel lines that are then expanded to form a diamond shape or a square shape between each cut. Expanded metal is commonly used as reinforcement in areas where a considerable thickness of plaster is required, or to reinforce light concrete construction. Wire mesh reinforcement can be used on sidewalks, small concrete pads, or walkable surfaces that don't receive high live or load charges.
