Market grade wire cloth can be manufactured from stainless steel, as well as other metals such as bronze, aluminum, brass, copper and nickel. Market grade wire mesh is available in a wide range of openings per lineal inch, wire diameters, opening widths and open area percentages to meet numerous industrial applications.
How Does Market Grade Wire Mesh Differ From Mill Grade?
Market grade should not be confused with mill grade wire cloth. The primary difference between the two is that mill grade features much lighter wire diameters than market grade, which provides a much higher percentage of open area in the screening. Because of this, market grade wire mesh is the better choice when greater strength and/or wear life of the product is of primary importance.
When the mesh count is above 80, it is called fine mesh wire cloth. And if it’s below 80, it is called coarse mesh.
Bolting cloth is often a preferred option when having a larger amount of usable open areas is more important than strength.
Market Grade Wire Cloth Applications
Because of its combination of superior strength, extended lifespan and remarkable versatility, industrial fiber cloth can be used for many different types of industrial and commercial general-purpose screening applications. Examples include:
- Filtration and separation
- Refineries and oil fields
- Galvanized hardware cloth
- Animal/livestock fencing and containment
- Food processing and preparation
- Heat treating
- RFI shielding
- Infill panels
- Building and construction
