Stainless Steel wire mesh

Stainless steel is a multipurpose material. Initially, it was used in cutlery, from there it paved its way into the chemical industry due to its resistance to corrosion. This material goes unnoticed in our kitchen while performing our mundane activities. A wire mesh can be defined as orderly crossed wires in basic patterns. These patterns are made in a way so that they can form a barricade or shield. The shapes like small, large, square, polygonal are made based on their application where they can be used. Stainless steel is even in appearance; Its infusion with wire mesh is used in various sectors as it has given years of reliable service. You can use it from stock or custom manufacturing. It’s versatile due to these qualities: its low maintenance, highly resistant to corrosion, and is tolerant of extreme temperatures.

There is a wide range of applications of stainless steel mesh wires in almost all the commercial industries:


  1. Square Mesh/ Fine Mesh: It is the most commonly used weave. These weaves have square openings. The weft wire passes over and under each warp wire in an alternative. These many commercial applications are available with apertures from 10.7mm (2 mesh) to 0.05mm (325 mesh).
  2. Twill Weave (TW):These are made from wire having large diameters. Comparatively, it’s more robust than the plain weave. The weft wire crosses in an alternative manner over two, then under two warp wires generating a diagonal pattern. The wire diameter of the warp and weft are the same. Twill weave is typically utilized to fit a heavy diameter wire linked with the given mesh.
  3. Plain Dutch Weave Wire Mesh (PDW):These are woven in an over and under pattern. The warp wires are more massive, larger in diameter as compared to shute wires. The latter is used to create high-density wire mesh with low flow rates and high particle retention.
  4. Twill Dutch Weaver Wire Mesh:It is almost similar to Plain Dutch, but the only difference, it’s woven in Twill style. In it, the wire surpasses over two wirers then under two wires. They use a Shute wire of small- diameter. They have a better filtration than PDW.
  5. Reverse Twill Dutch Weave (RTDW):They are created using coarse mesh in the warp and a fine mesh with a small wire in the fill. The end- result has a better opening with improved strength. First and foremost are used as a filter cloth. Its shape and position of the opening promotes particle retention and enhances the formation of the filter cake.
  6. Hollander Weave:It’s a plain weave where the warp wires have a large diameter than the weft wire. This weave is composed of a confined number of warp wires intertwined with a large number of weft wires. The cloth is quite firm and possesses high strength. It is usually used for high-pressure filtration.
