Stainless Steel Wire Mesh
Stainless steel wire mesh refers to woven mesh and welded mesh made of stainless steel. The rust and corrosion resistance of stainless steel are much higher than that of carbon steel. In a humid natural environment, the surface of stainless steel can keep bright for a long time or even for a lifetime. Even if exposed to a weak acid environment for a long time, it will not be attacked, but carbon steel will quickly rust.
Types of Stainless Steel Wire Mesh
The types of stainless steel wire mesh can basically be divided into:
- Woven wire mesh, types of weaving mainly include plain weave, twill weave and Dutch weave. Mainly used for sieving, filtering and screening, the mesh count range is 1-600 mesh.
- Welded wire mesh, with square grids, the typical use is hardware cloth.
- Twisted wire mesh, also known as chicken wire or hexagonal wire mesh, mainly used for poultry netting, decorative mesh or craft, etc.
Commonly Used Stainless Steel Grades
The commonly used material grades used in the production of stainless steel mesh are as follows:
- United States: AISI 302, 304, 316, 304L, 316L, etc.
- European Union: 1.4301 (X5CrNi18-10), 1.4401 (X5CrNiMo17-12-2), 1.4404 (X2CrNiMo17-12-2)
- Japan: SUS302, SUS304, SUS316, SUS304L, SUS316L, etc.
Woven wire mesh used for metal coffee filters, tea strainer, fruit and vegetable draining basket, sediment filter, kettle brewing filter, plastic extruder screens, window screens, etc.
Welded wire mesh used for machine cover, stair handrail infill panels, welded fence panels, chicken coop netting, etc.
Chicken wire used for poultry netting, laminated glass interlayer, craft, wire baskets, etc.
