Stainless Steel Wire Mesh

Woven is one of a way to make stainless steel woven cloth. And using the stainless steel wire as the material, the process of weaving stainless mesh screen similar as weaving cotton cloth. So some times people also call this material mesh as stainless steel woven mesh.

There are many choices of raw material for stainless steel wire cloth, but the most commonly used and most popular are 304 stainless steel woven mesh and 316 stainless steel woven mesh. Because the materials of SUS 304 stainless steel grades and SUS 316 stainless steel grades have certain anti-corrosion, high temperature and non-toxic properties, they can be used in most filtration environments. On the other hand, 304 and 316 stainless steel are the most cost-effective among all corrosion and high temperature resistant wire meshes, which is one of the reasons why they are widely using.

In addition, in some special environments, SUS304L, SUS316L, SUS310, SUS310s, SUS430 and other stainless steel grades are also important material components of stainless steel woven mesh.

Key terms often used in the use and purchase of stainless steel woven cloth.  wire diameter Mesh Mesh Count Micron””Open area and so on.

In the wire mesh industry, we have a lot of common professional terms. Most importantly, in the process of product design, procurement, use, etc., these internationally-used professional terms are the bridge of mutual communication.

Wire Diameter: The wire diameter is the metal wire’s diameter which used for weaving the mesh screen. Under normal circumstances, the larger the wire diameter, the larger the opening. Otherwise the woven will not be completed

Mesh: The meaning mesh same as mesh count. In inch as the unit, the number of holes in one direction. Meanwhile, the larger number of openings, the smaller the openings.

Micron: Micron is the size of the opening in micrometers. But if use micron as the way to show the opening, the Micron more larger the opening more larger.

Does stainless steel mesh rust?
  • Electrochemical corrosion
  • Organic acid corrosion
  • Chemical corrosion

The main reasons for stainless steel woven cloth rust are as follows:

  1. The surface of stainless steel has accumulated dust containing other metal elements or attachments of foreign metal particles. In humid air, the condensation between the attachments and stainless steel connects the two to form a micro battery, which initiates an electrochemical reaction. , The protective film is damaged, which is called electrochemical corrosion.
  1. The surface of stainless steel adheres to the organic juice, which forms organic acid in the presence of water and oxygen, and the organic acid will corrode the metal surface for a long time.
  1. The surface of stainless steel adhered to contain acids, alkalis, salts, etc., causing local corrosion.
  1. In polluted air (such as the atmosphere containing a large amount of sulfide, carbon oxide, and nitrogen oxide), it will form sulfuric acid, nitric acid, and acetic acid liquid spots when encountering condensed water, causing chemical corrosion.
About the mesh Rust:

On the issue of rust, stainless steel woven mesh products still have good expressive power. Because stainless steel woven mesh is not easy to rust in the use environment of strong corrosion such as non-strong acid and non-strong alkali.

However, in a highly corrosive environment, we usually recommend customers to use products with better corrosion resistance, such as: titanium wire mesh, Nickle wire mesh, etc.

What’s the difference of 304 stainless steel wire cloth and 316 stainless steel wire cloth?
  • Different chemical composition
  • Different corrosion resistance
  • Price 316 material is more expensive

The chromium content of 304 stainless steel wire cloth is at least 18%, and the nickel content is at least 8%. This kind of stainless steel has excellent oxidation and corrosion resistance and is the most versatile. Compared with 316 stainless steel wire cloth, 304 wire mesh has a lower cost.

316 stainless steel woven mesh contains at least 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum. The main difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel woven mesh is that 316 stainless steel woven mesh contains molybdenum.

Corrosion resistance:

The addition of molybdenum improves corrosion resistance because molybdenum is a transition metal with high corrosion resistance. It also makes 316 stainless steel have high heat resistance up to 871°C. If the environment contains a lot of corrosive elements, or the application under water, 316 stainless steel is the first choice.

The 304 stainless steel woven cloth is resistant to corrosion by sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, formic acid, urea, etc., and is suitable for general water, control gas, wine, milk, CIP cleaning fluid and other occasions with little corrosiveness or no contact with materials.

What the main stainless steel grade using in make stainless steel mesh?
