Wire Mesh

Stainless Steel Products offers wire mesh typically made with Plain Weave, Twill Weave, or Dutch Twill Weave. Wires can be welded, crimped, or plain. We offer various materials, including plain steel,galvanized steel,                           stainless steel, brass, and more.

Plain Weave

Plain woven wire mesh is the most common type of weaving method. The warp (length) wires and the weft (width) wires cross each another, alternating one on the top and one under, forming a 90° angle between each other creating a square or rectangular opening.  Manufacturers use plain woven wire mesh to make filters, for food, chemicals, insect screens, mining screens, and much more.

Stainless Steel Products offers wire mesh in stainless steel, carbon steel, galvanized steel, brass, bronze copper, and more.  Standard roll widths include 36", 48", and 60".  Standard roll lengths are 100ft; however, 50ft and 120ft or larger may be available.  We also offer wire meshes cut to your specific width and length requirements!


Wire mesh is specified by the number of wires per inch down the length of a roll x the number of wires per inch crossing the width of the roll x wire diameter.  For example, a 2 x 2 x 0.063" wire mesh has 2 wires per inch down the length, 2 wires per inch across the width, and the wire diameter is 0.063".

Twill Weave
Twill Weave is another common type of weave.  The wires down the roll length and the wires across the width cross, two wires at a time, first above above then below, at an established distance. This makes the mesh more rigid and stable.
 
Dutch Twilled Weave
Dutch Twill Weave cloth is very common for filtering under high pressure.  In this weave, the width wires and the length wires cross two above and then two below at a set distance.  However,  in the Dutch Twill weave, the the wires across the width of the mesh roll have a larger diameter than the wires down the length of the roll.

Strip

Strip

Strip material is commonly slit (cut or sliced thin) from wider coils.  

Stainless Steel Products offers many types of stainless steel alloys including Austenitic (300 series), Ferritic/Martensitic (400 series), and other high corrosion and/or temperature resistant alloys. Edges can be as slit, rounded, deburred, and more.

Strip material may typically range in thickness from 0.0010" to 0.0625"; however, thicker materials are available.  Width's may range from 0.25" to 36" or more.  Material Hardness can vary from specialized softness to spring temper and any hardness in between.  Hardness is commonly specified using Rockewell, Vicker, or other scaling charts.
