We stock woven mesh made from the following materials:
Aluminium and Aluminium alloys are preferred where very lightweight cloth is required.
Brass has not the toughness or corrosive resistant qualities of Phosphor Bronze but it is harder than copper. It is an alloy of Copper and Zinc and is easily soldered.
Copper is comparatively soft but offers good resistance to corrosion and is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. It is easily soldered.
Excellent strength at high temperatures and resistance to corrosion.
Monel metal is a natural alloy containing approximately 67% Nickel, 28% Copper and about 5% other elements. It provides great resistance to corrosion and high temperature and has good tensile strength.
This tough ductile metal is widely used. Alloyed from 92% Copper, 8% Tin and a small quantity of Phosphorous, it has good resistance to corrosion. It is easily soldered.
Toughness and resistance to corrosion are the qualities of this metal and the increased life obtained by using it amply justifies the initial cost. All our standard meshes (2 to 500 mesh) are stocked in Type 304 quality and several in Type 316. Additional grades of steel are available to order, including 316L, 430, 310 and 321.
Where economy and strength are the main factors, mild steel will meet normal requirements. To prevent rust, Galvanised wire may be used.
