Stucco Wire

Stucco wire, a classical and basic material in wall construction as the supporting and reinforcing mesh. The stucco netting is mainly made of galvanized steel wire and then reverse twisted into hexagonal meshes. The reverse twist structure make the stucco netting a solid, uniform and flat structure for high strength and durability. Compared with other type stucco netting, such as welded wire mesh or expanded metal mesh, the woven structure will not cracking and loosing when it is cut into pieces.

The wire is typically galvanized, in order to prevent corrosion of the wire over the years. The holes in the wire are approximately 1 1/2 inches apart (depending on manufacturer), which doesn't really matter but is just another identifying factor for three coat stucco wire.
