Glass Fibre Fabrics

The physical and chemical properties of textile glass materials such as light weight, high strength, dimensional stability as well as uninflammability, weather proofness, and chemical resistance become apparent in their use as armouring and reinforcement material for a broad spectrum of technical applications.


Under the trade name of ARMITEX ®, Gröning manufactures glass mesh fabrics for use in the construction industry as reinforcement material for all types of indoor and outdoor plaster as well as thermal insulation composite systems not only for new buildings, but also for the refurbishment of old buildings. Special ultra-strong reinforcement cloth completes the product line.

Depending upon application, Armitex® fabrics of varying weight are available. A broad range of variation possibilities is given with regard to the spacing as well as thickness of the longitudinal and transverse threads (warp and weft).
