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.
Materials:Steel Plate, Aluminum Plate, Stainless Steel Plate, Titanium Plate, Alum-Platinum Plate, Lead Plate, Nickel Plate, etc.
Features: It is stronger, lighter in weight and more rigid than the original base metal.
Hole patterns:Conventional mesh is formed in a diamond pattern. It has other pattern of square, round, triangle, scale-like opening.
Uses:Widely used in the agriculture, construction, medicine, filtering, paper-making, handicraft -making etc.
We can supply expanded metal mesh in rolls or sheets of different sizes.
SWD: Short way of design measured from center of bond to center of bond.
LWD: Long way of design measured from center of bond to center of bond.
SWO: Short Way of Opening
LWO: Long Way of Opening
Strand: One side of expanded metal design.
Thickness: Thickness of the base metal
Bond: The solid intersection of two strands - Double the strand width.
Mesh: This is the nominal distance from the mid-point of one bond to the mid-point of the next bond measured across the SWD.
Regular expanded metal: Expanded metal mesh as it is produced off the expanded metal press with no secondary flattening operation. Material looks similar to a louvered design.
Flattened expanded metal : Expanded metal that has been cold-rolled after expansion, to provide a smooth, flat, and level sheet. The flattening process usually reduces the original gauge of the base metal.
