Bricktor Crack Control Reinforcement is manufactured from high tensile wire and designed for bonding and strengthening brickwork, blockwork and stone walls. It lies flat on the masonry mortar joint making the product easy to install compared to other coiled products. Test work carried out has shown the use of Bricktor contributes significantly to enhance the strength of masonry by absorbing tensile stresses which can develop in masonry construction.
