3mm Round Hole Perforated Aluminium Mesh
3mm round hole perforated aluminium mesh is produced by punching flat aluminium plate with a specific pattern. The customer’s requirement for metal for cosmetic or application purposes drives this decision.
The 3mm aluminium mesh offers a unique combination of strength and lightness. Made from aluminium, it ensures durability while being notably lightweight. The mesh features a 3mm round hole aperture, making it versatile for various applications. Each hole is separated by a pitch of 5mm, giving it a distinct triangular pattern, adding to its aesthetic appeal and functionality. With a thickness of 1.5mm, this flat sheet is robust enough to provide structural support, yet thin enough to be easily manipulated for custom projects. Aluminium, as a material, is naturally rust-resistant, making the mesh suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Furthermore, its resistance to corrosion means it can be used in environments where other metals might degrade. Common applications include ventilation panels, decorative facades, protective guards, and filtration systems. Its triangular pattern not only adds to its visual appeal but also enhances its structural integrity. For those seeking a material that is both functional and stylish, the 3mm aluminium mesh stands out as an ideal choice.

FAQs For This Product
Can The 3mm Aluminium Mesh Be Welded?
Yes, this 3mm aluminium mesh can be welded. However, aluminium welding requires specific techniques and equipment compared to standard steel welding. It’s essential to use the right type of filler material and shielding gas when welding aluminium. Additionally, it’s crucial to clean the aluminium thoroughly before welding to remove any oxide layer. TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) or MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding methods are commonly used for aluminium. If you’re not experienced in aluminium welding, it may be beneficial to consult a professional or specialist to ensure the integrity and strength of the weld.
Can The 3mm Aluminium Mesh Be Used Outdoors?
Yes, the 3mm aluminium mesh can be used outdoors. A protective oxide layer forms on the surface of aluminium, making it naturally corrosion resistant. As a result of this layer, it is particularly suitable for outdoor applications where it may be exposed to various environmental elements.
Additionally, the mesh’s inherent lightweight and durability make it an excellent choice for exterior projects. It may, however, benefit from periodic cleaning or additional protective coatings in highly corrosive environments, such as coastal areas.
In general, the 3mm aluminium mesh is a versatile option for outdoor installations due to its resistance to rust and general wear.
Is Aluminium Mesh Corrosion-Resistant?
Yes, the 3mm aluminium mesh is corrosion-resistant. When exposed to the atmosphere, aluminum forms a thin oxide layer on its surface. As a result of this oxide layer, further oxidation is prevented and corrosion is prevented. A new oxide layer will form in its place if the protective layer is scratched or damaged. This characteristic makes aluminium an excellent choice for applications where corrosion resistance is vital, especially in outdoor settings or in environments where the material might come into contact with moisture. Additional treatments or coatings may be required for enhanced longevity in extremely corrosive environments.
