Stainless steel wire mesh, specifically Type 304 stainless steel, is the most popular material for producing woven wire cloth. Also known as 18-8 because of its 18 percent chromium and eight percent nickel components, 304 is a basic stainless alloy that offers a combination of strength, corrosion resistance and affordability. Type 304 stainless steel is normally the best option when manufacturing grilles, vents or filters used for the general screening of liquids, powders, abrasives and solids.
Woven wire mesh products, also known as woven wire cloth, are woven on looms, a process that is similar to the one used to weave clothing. The mesh can consist of various crimping patterns for the interlocking segments. This interlocking method, which entails the precise arrangement of the wires over and under one another prior to crimping them into place, creates a product that’s strong and reliable. The high-precision manufacturing process makes woven wire cloth more labor-intensive to produce therefore it is typically more expensive than welded wire mesh.
Wire openings and sizes range broadly. Marco Specialty Steel offers many different weave patterns and pre-crimp styles. Below are examples of crimp and weave styles that are available. See our Crimp and Weave Styles page for more detailed information.
