Stainless Steel Mesh


Stainless steel woven wire mesh is the most popular woven screen in the industrial world, including the oil, gas and petrochemicals industry as well as food, pharmaceutical and ceramics companies.It is known for its corrosion resistance and strength.

Stocks of our stainless steel woven wire mesh are readily available from 2 mesh x 1.6mm wire diameter, through to 500 mesh x 0.025mm wire diameter (11mm aperture down to 26 microns).

The largest demand is for plain or twilled weave woven wire mesh, through to plain dutch and twilled dutch weaves for the finest filtration, down to 6 microns.

Material grade: Type 304 and Type 316, T304 is the basic stainless alloy, and unless otherwise specified it is assumed that this type is acceptable; Type 316 is a special stainless alloy due to the addition of 2% molybdenum. This increases its resistance to corrosion by salts, acids and seawater.
