Stainless Steel Metal Wire Gauze
0.51mm hole stainless steel coarse metal wire gauze mesh in top quality 304 grade made from 0.28mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a coarse mesh specification. This gauze is fairly coarse, but the holes are very small and not especially visible by naked eye. It is of interest to anyone who needs a coarse for any application. You would be able to bend this gauze by hand very easily. Once bent it would hold its shape.
The metal wire gauze is a robust and versatile material made of 304 stainless steel. With 32 holes per linear inch and 1,024 holes per square inch, this coarse woven wire mesh is designed to suit a variety of applications. With a wire thickness of 0.28mm and a hole size or aperture of 0.51mm, it offers a balance between strength and open area. The open area percentage is 42%, which allows for effective ventilation and filtration, making it a popular choice for both industrial and domestic purposes.
One of the main advantages of this mesh is its durability and resistance to rust due to its 304-grade stainless steel construction. This ensures that it maintains its structural integrity and aesthetic appeal over time, even in environments where it might be exposed to moisture or corrosive substances.
Its coarser design makes it especially useful in situations where larger particle separation or ventilation is required. Whether you are looking to use it for filtration, as a protective barrier, or for any other purpose, its structure ensures efficiency.
Another practical aspect of this product is its ease of modification. While it boasts a strong construction, you can effortlessly cut it to your desired size using tin snips or even standard kitchen scissors. This ensures that whether you’re using it for a large-scale project or a small home DIY task, adapting it to fit your needs is straightforward.

We also offer a massive range of 304 stainless steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce stainless steel perforated metal sheet, flat sheet metal is punched with round or square holes. Perforated sheets are commonly often used in applications where the passing of air is required. Because the holes are punched, it is possible to have a far stronger finished metal product than it would be for the equivalent thickness in woven or welded mesh.

FAQs For This Product
Can I Use Metal Wire Gauze For Soil Testing Applications?
Yes, metal wire gauze can be used for soil testing applications. Due to its coarse weave and 0.51mm hole size, the gauze is suitable for separating larger soil particles from finer ones. When handling potentially moist or acidic soil samples, 304 stainless steel metal wire gauze ensures durability and corrosion resistance. For best results, it’s important to choose the appropriate mesh size based on the soil’s granularity. Using gauze for soil testing should be followed by a thorough cleaning to prevent contamination.
Can The Gauze Withstand High Temperatures During Filtration?
Yes, the metal wire gauze made of 304 stainless steel can withstand high temperatures during filtration. When exposed to elevated temperatures, 304 stainless steel maintains its structural integrity despite its heat resistance properties. As a result, it is ideal for processes that involve heat, such as filtration and sieving. The temperature must not exceed 304 stainless steel’s melting point, however. If the material is exposed to high temperatures for an extended period of time or is used for a specific application, it might be wise to consider other specialised materials or consult with the manufacturer.
Can Metal Wire Gauze Be Used In Chemical Laboratories?
Yes, metal wire gauze made from 304 stainless steel is suitable for use in chemical laboratories. Its corrosion-resistant properties make it durable in the presence of many chemicals. Metal wire gauze is typically used as a support platform for heated containers, ensuring even heat distribution and preventing direct contact with the flame. In addition, its mesh structure allows it to effectively separate or sieve particulates in various laboratory applications. Check the compatibility of 304 stainless steel with the chemicals involved before using it for specific chemical reactions or procedures.
