Mild Steel Woven Mesh
0.86mm hole coarse mild steel woven mesh made from 0.2mm wire. This wire is fairly fine to be woven to form a mesh netting, as a consequence it is fairly light ad delicate.
The mild steel woven mesh is a versatile material known for its durability and adaptability. Constructed using a weave pattern, it comprises 24 holes per linear inch. This translates to a dense formation of 576 holes per square inch, ensuring the mesh is uniform in its design. Each individual wire has a thickness of 0.2mm. However, at points where two wires intersect, the combined structure is naturally denser.
One of the standout features of this mesh is its hole size or aperture. With a measurement of 0.86mm between wires, it offers a considerable space ensuring efficient airflow or filtration depending on its application. A significant attribute of this mesh is its open area percentage, standing at 66%. Such a high open area percentage means that a majority of the mesh’s surface remains open, making it particularly suitable for tasks that require optimal ventilation or minimal obstruction.
Specification Of This Mesh:
- Mesh Count = 24 holes per linear inch. The amount of holes measured against a straight line inch
- Holes / Wires Per Square Inch = 576 holes per square inch. The amount of holes per linear inch squared
- Wire Thickness = 0.2mm. The thickness of each wire. The structure is thicker than this where two wires meet
- Hole Size / Aperture = 0.86mm. This is the square hole size from wire to wire
- Open Area % = 66%. The amount of the mesh that is open. The higher this number the more open a mesh is. This is a very high open area%
- Cut With – We cut this mesh with tin snips. We suggest that you do the same

We also offer a massive range of mild steel perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to produce mild 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.
The Mesh Company has an enormous range of wire mesh products. We truly are an industry leader among suppliers of weld mesh and woven wire materials. With the capabilities we have in-house, we can provide virtually anything you require. Chicken wire, insect meshing and rodent mesh materials are also available in large stock quantities at bargain prices.
FAQs For This Product
Are There Benefits To Using Mild Steel Over Stainless Steel Mesh?
- Cost-Effective: Mild steel is generally more affordable than stainless steel. This makes it a popular choice for projects where budget constraints are a significant factor.
- Malleability: Mild steel is softer and more malleable than stainless steel. This makes it easier to form, shape, and weld, making it suitable for applications requiring intricate shapes or designs.
- Ease of Welding: Mild steel is easier to weld compared to stainless steel, especially for those without advanced welding equipment or techniques.
- Adhesive Properties: Mild steel offers a better surface for paint and coatings to adhere to, compared to stainless steel. This can be an advantage in applications where the mesh will be painted or coated.
- Weight: Mild steel can be lighter than stainless steel, which may be beneficial for certain applications where weight is a consideration.
Is The Mild Steel Woven Mesh Rust-Resistant?
No, mild steel woven mesh is not inherently rust-resistant. The surface of mild steel is not protected from oxidation by a protective layer, unlike stainless steel or galvanized steel. Mild steel will rust over time when it comes into contact with moisture, particularly in environments with a high concentration of oxygen.
Can This Mesh Handle High Temperatures?
Mild steel woven mesh can handle high temperatures to some extent, but its performance under such conditions depends on several factors:
- Temperature Range: Mild steel has a melting point of around 1,370°C (2,500°F). While it can handle temperatures well below this point, it will start to lose strength as the temperature approaches this limit.
- Duration of Exposure: Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can cause mild steel to lose some of its structural integrity over time, making it more susceptible to warping or deformation.
- Rate of Temperature Change: Rapid temperature changes can cause thermal shock, leading to potential warping or cracking. It’s preferable to expose the mesh to gradual temperature changes.
- Oxidation at High Temperatures: At elevated temperatures, mild steel can oxidise more quickly, potentially leading to a faster rate of rusting if exposed to moisture.
- Application Context: The ability of the mesh to handle high temperatures can also depend on the specific application. For instance, in a scenario where the mesh is under tension or load, it might behave differently than in a relaxed state.
