EXPAMET HY-RIB RED
Permanent formwork to concrete
Expamet Hy-Rib® is an expanded metal sheet product, specifically developed for use as permanent formwork to concrete. The profile of the open mesh, in combination with the Hy-Rib tangs, allow the development of dense concrete nodules and indents on the face of the Hy-Rib, forming an enhanced mechanical key for the second phase pour. In the case of visible elements, the resulting Hy-Rib surface is suitable to receive a rendered or tiled finish. Hy-Rib is primarily used in construction joint applications but it is also used to form wall, beam & column surfaces and slabs soffits, where the formed surface will not be seen.
