Expanded metal mesh is also called pulled plate wire mesh. A rigid piece of metal that has been slit and drawn into an open mesh pattern in a single operation. It is stronger, lighter in weight and more rigid than the original base metal.
Expanded metal mesh material are carbon steel plate, stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, aluminum foil, lead, nickel plate, titanium, aluminum-magnesium alloy panels. Conventional mesh is formed in a diamond pattern. It has other pattern of hexagonal, round, triangle, scale-like opening.
Features and benefits of expanded metal mesh:
The mesh is formed from a single piece of metal
The process is not wasteful of material
Higher strength-to-weight ratio than sheet metal
Excludes and retains simultaneously
Premium reinforcement properties
Practical and effective screening
High efficient conductor
Super corrosion resistance
Expanded metal mesh has a wide range of uses, graceful shapes , strong processing capability. A major advantage of expanded is that the mesh is formed from a single piece of material and the process is not wasteful and therefore cost effective.
Main use: metal surface treatment and after processing, are widely used in large venues, both inside and outside decorative, aerospace, petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, medicine, paper making, filtration, breeding, packing, mechanical facilities, protection, handicraft manufacturing, high-grade speaker grille, children’s seat, baskets, basket, highway protection, and heavy machinery, boilers, oil mines, locomotives, tonner steamship, work platform, staircase, walkway. Also can be used for construction, highway and bridge as reinforced use.
