Stainless Steel 304 Woven Mesh Material
1.36mm hole coarse woven stainless steel mesh material in top quality 304 grade made from 0.45mm wire. As you can see from the image, this is a coarse mesh specification. This mesh material 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 mesh by hand very easily. Once bent it would hold its shape.
The stainless steel mesh material is a versatile choice designed for various applications. Made with woven wire, it exhibits both flexibility and resilience. With 14 holes per linear inch, it translates to a dense configuration of 196 holes per square inch. Such a structure ensures fine filtration while maintaining good airflow or fluid passage.
One of the standout features of this mesh material is its wire thickness, which is at 0.45mm. This dimension offers the right balance of durability without being too rigid, allowing for ease of use and adaptability. The hole size or aperture of the mesh is 1.36mm, ensuring that it can filter out even small particles efficiently while not being overly restrictive.
With an Open Area % of 57, this mesh material provides a breathable structure. This means that over half of its surface area is open, ensuring that whatever passes through it does so with minimal resistance. This feature makes it ideal for scenarios where good ventilation or flow is crucial.

Wait!! Before you order your mesh material please first check out our clearance listing which is where we put all of our over-run bargain rolls at reduced prices. You never know, you might find just the roll that you need for your purposes.
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 sheet in application 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
What Applications Would This Mesh Material Be Used For?
This is a coarse mesh, which would look rather like a kitchen sieve to those less mesh centred as we are.
Our customers have used this mesh for myriad applications over the years, but we believe that the most common uses are as an industrial filter and in food processing.
The strength and durability of 1.36mm stainless steel woven mesh make it an excellent choice for industrial filters. It can be used for filtering air, water, and other materials in industrial settings. The wire to hole ratio is fairly good, so it can withstand a very high level of pressure.
This mesh material is also suitable for use in food processing applications because it is easy to clean and can resist corrosion. 316 grade would be slightly more suited though, as this is the food industry grade as a rule.
It would also work for rodent proofing small gaps and vents.
How Long Does Stainless Steel Woven Mesh Last?
Stainless steel woven mesh is resistant to rust and corrosion, which makes it suitable for use in a wide range of environments, including marine and coastal areas. The strength of the material also means it is less likely to tear or break than other types of mesh.
With proper care and maintenance, a high-quality stainless steel woven mesh can last for many years, even up to 20 or 30 years. Routine cleaning, inspection, and repair of any damage or wear and tear can help extend the lifespan of the mesh.
How Is Woven Wire Mesh Made?
Woven mesh material is a type of textile that is made by interlacing two sets of yarn or threads, known as the warp and the weft, at right angles to each other. The warp threads are attached to a loom, which is a machine that holds them taut and allows them to be lifted or lowered in sequence, creating a space for the weft thread to pass through. Interestingly, the founder of our group was the inventor of the electronic loom and its processes. This was way back in the 19th century.
As the weft thread is woven in and out of the warp threads, it creates a pattern of interlocking squares or rectangles, depending on the specific type of weave used. The resulting mesh material is a very solid structure that can be used for multitudinous industrial and domestic applications.
Can I Cut This Mesh?
Yes absolutely. Our experienced mesh team would use standard kitchen scissors to cut this material. Our trainees would likely use tin snips as they get used t cutting along the aperture of the mesh accurately.
