Re: fibermesh rates

Of course it depends on various factors, but I've used between 1.7 and 2 #/cy.  Wetsaw at 10 ft. 
3.5 sounds like an awful lot.  Have you ended up w/ large cracks from that?  Any benefits show up that are worth the extra amount?

We normally have a fibermesh mix of 3.5lbs/CY of 1.5" polyprop. fiberson our standard SOG in lieu of WWF. We have never had a comment before, but now a GC wants to use less "because his concrete company cannot provide that much and can I use less...?."
We are getting this info through the client so we don't know what exactly that means. All the fibermesh specs I have looked at online say 1.5lb/cy MINIMUM.
What do you guys use if you don't mind me asking?
