Stainless Steel Woven Wire Mesh
0.074mm hole 316 stainless steel woven wire mesh in top quality 316 marine grade made from 0.036mm wire. As you can see from the image this is a fine mesh specification. The holes are very small and not especially visible by naked eye. It is of interest to anyone who needs a fine mesh for any application. As a result of the fineness of the wires, you would be able to bend and fold this mesh by hand very easily.
The stainless steel woven wire mesh is a high-quality product made from 316-grade stainless steel. Characterised by its fine mesh structure, it boasts a mesh count of 230 holes per linear inch, translating to an impressive 52,900 holes per square inch. This extensive number of holes ensures a fine and consistent mesh, ideal for various applications.
With a wire thickness of 0.036mm, the mesh offers a balance of delicacy and strength. It’s worth noting that at the intersections where two wires meet, the structure will be thicker than the individual wire thickness. The hole size or aperture, which refers to the square gap from one wire to another, measures at a minute 0.074mm. Despite its intricate web of wires, the mesh still manages an open area percentage of 38%, signifying that this percentage of the mesh is open space. The higher this open area percentage, the more breathable and transparent the mesh becomes.
One of the standout features of this product is its ease of handling. It can be effortlessly cut using standard kitchen scissors or even torn to the desired size using just the fingertips, making it highly user-friendly.
Beneficial for a plethora of applications, the stainless steel woven wire mesh is ideal for filtration processes, screen printing, protection layers, and many other uses where a fine and durable mesh is essential. Furthermore, being constructed from 316-grade stainless steel, it offers excellent resistance to corrosion and environmental factors.

FAQs For This Product
Can This Stainless Steel Woven Wire Mesh Be Used For Fine Particle Filtration?
Yes, the stainless steel woven wire mesh can be used for fine particle filtration. With 230 holes per linear inch and an aperture size of 0.074mm, it sieves and filters small particles effectively. 316-grade stainless steel ensures durability and corrosion resistance, making it suitable for filtration applications involving liquids and fine powders. Specific filtration needs will, however, depend on the particle size and aperture size of the mesh. Ensure that the mesh meets the requirements of the specific filtration application.
How Does The Mesh React To Chemical Exposures?
Stainless steel woven wire mesh, made from 316-grade stainless steel, is known for its enhanced corrosion resistance, especially in chloride environments, making it more resistant to chemical exposure than other grades. The molybdenum in 316-grade stainless steel makes it more corrosion resistant, especially against chemicals such as chlorides. Therefore, this mesh can be used in marine environments and chemical processing industries. Although it is resistant to many chemicals, prolonged or aggressive exposure may cause reactions. If the mesh is going to be exposed to specific chemicals or corrosive environments, it’s always recommended to check compatibility and conduct tests.
Is The Mesh Suitable For Food-Related Applications?
Yes, the stainless steel woven wire mesh made from 316-grade stainless steel is suitable for food-related applications. Stainless steel of this particular grade is known for its corrosion resistance, particularly against food-related chemicals and environments. Due to its resistance to acids found in foods like citrus fruits, sauces, and fermented products, 316-grade stainless steel is commonly used in the food and beverage industry. Due to its non-reactive properties, it won’t leach unwanted flavors or chemicals into food. To maintain hygiene standards and prevent contamination, regular cleaning and maintenance is essential when using mesh for food applications.
