Pure Copper Fine Wire Mesh (99%)
We weave this 0.204mm hole copper fine mesh from solid copper wire. We love working with copper mesh. It is so soft to cut and use compared to the stainless equivalent.
Copper fine mesh is a top-quality material known for its super-fine texture and reliability in RFI and EMI shielding. With a mesh screen that boasts a 0.2mm hole and a 0.05mm wire thickness, it offers a level of precision that is unmatched by other materials. In fact, this copper mesh has 100 holes per linear inch, making it an excellent choice for industries where accuracy and performance are paramount. Whether you’re looking for a material to shield electronic equipment from electromagnetic interference or to prevent radiofrequency interference in sensitive environments, copper fine mesh is an excellent choice that will get the job done right.
This mesh size is also available in pure brass.
The specifications for this 2.5mm hole copper wire mesh are as follows:
- Holes / Wires Per Linear Inch = 100
- Holes / Wires Per Square Inch = 10,000
- Wire Thickness = 0.05mm
- Hole Size / Aperture = 0.204mm

FAQs For This Product
Can I Use Copper Mesh For RFI Shielding?
Copper fine mesh with 100 holes per linear inch can be effective for RFI and EMI shielding in certain applications.
Interference caused by radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) can affect electronic equipment and cause problems with signal transmission and reception. This interference is often prevented by shielding, which blocks or absorbs the radiation.
Shielding materials made of copper are excellent conductors of electricity and effectively block electromagnetic radiations. Fine mesh with small holes blocks high-frequency radiation while allowing air to flow through to prevent overheating.
Generally, a mesh with more holes per linear inch will provide better shielding, since holes per inch indicate mesh density. There are different levels of shielding needed for different applications, so the specific number needed will vary.
We have also provided a detailed article on using copper mesh for RFI and RMI shielding.
How Cost Effective Is It As A Solution?
The cost effectiveness of using copper mesh as a solution for RFI shielding depends on a variety of factors, including the specific application, the level of shielding required, and the cost of alternative materials and shielding techniques.
In many cases, copper mesh can be a cost-effective solution for RFI shielding. The material is relatively easy to work with and can be cut to fit any structure or device. Furthermore, copper mesh is electrically conductive and can effectively block electromagnetic radiation across a wide frequency range.
Other times, copper mesh may not be the most cost-effective option. Materials and labour cost may be higher than other shielding techniques, like conductive paints and coatings, if shielding requirements are strict or the mesh has to be installed in an irregularly shaped structure.
It depends on the specific application and project requirements when deciding whether copper mesh is cost-effective for RFI shielding. When making a decision, it’s crucial to consider all the available materials and techniques and weigh their pros and cons.
Are There Installation Challenges For Using Copper Mesh For RFI Shielding?
There are several installation challenges associated with using fine copper mesh for RFI shielding. Here are some of the most common challenges:
- Proper sizing and placement: One of the most important factors in successfully installing copper mesh for RFI shielding is ensuring that the mesh is the correct size and is placed in the correct location. The mesh must be sized and shaped to fit the specific structure or device that needs shielding, and it must be placed in the correct location to effectively block electromagnetic radiation. This is not easy to achieve and care, attention and testing will be needed.
- Proper attachment: Copper mesh must be attached securely to the structure or device it is shielding to prevent gaps or other weaknesses that could compromise its effectiveness. This can be challenging in complex or irregularly shaped structures, as it may be difficult to achieve full coverage without creating gaps or overlaps. The best way to attach fine copper mesh for RFI shielding is to use a conductive adhesive, conductive tape, or a mechanical attachment method such as wrapping or clamping.
- Avoiding interference: Copper mesh can be a good conductor of electricity, which means that it can create interference or other problems if it comes into contact with live electrical circuits. Special care must be taken to ensure that the mesh does not interfere with the operation of any electronic equipment.
- Durability: Copper mesh can be susceptible to corrosion and other types of wear and tear, particularly in harsh environments. The Mesh Company produce a high-quality mesh that is durable enough to withstand the specific conditions of the application, so this will not be an issue.
- Access and visibility: In some cases, copper mesh may need to be installed in hard-to-reach areas or in areas where visibility is limited. This can make it more challenging to ensure that the mesh is properly installed and that there are no gaps or other weaknesses that could compromise its effectiveness. Again, take care to ensure that time is taken to ensure a secure and tight installation, then test regularly.
