A wire mesh is made up of uniformly crossed wires in regular patterns to form a barrier or screen. The patterns can be large or small, square or polygonal depending upon the purpose or application of the end product. From providing perimeter markings to concrete construction applications, this wire mesh is used in a variety of ways today. The reason of such wide usage is due to certain properties of the product as discussed below.
This wire mesh is made from different grades of stainless steel, like 304 or 316, depending on its usage.
Grade 304 has excellent corrosion resistance in a wide range of media. It resists ordinary rusting in most architectural applications. It is also resistant to most food processing environments, can be readily cleaned, and resists organic chemicals, dye stuffs and a wide variety of inorganic chemicals. Typical applications for 304 include architecture, food and beverage processing, equipment and utensils, commercial and domestic kitchen construction, sinks, and equipment for chemical, petrochemical, mineral processing and other industries.

Grade 316 has excellent corrosion resistance in a wide range of media. Typical applications for 316 include boat fittings and structural members; architectural components particularly in marine, polluted or industrial environments; food and beverage processing equipment; hot water systems; and equipment for chemical, petrochemical, mineral processing, photographic and other industries. Although 316 is often described as the ‘marine grade’, it is also seen as the first step up from the basic 304 grade.
Some properties that make stainless steel wire mesh so popular all over the world are discussed below.
Being made of stainless steel, with 8% nickel and 18% chromium alloyed, these barriers are highly resistant to corrosion. So, even underwater applications prefer using stainless steel screens as it decays the least. It is also used in areas where there is maximum exposure to the elements, ensuring longer functionality of the barriers.
The preceding wire mesh requires low upkeep due to its highly stable non-reactive structure and corrosion resistance properties. These fences also have high reusability value due to this nature. They can be left in areas with high exposure to elements; the stainless steel will ensure maximum functionality for a longer period of time.

These meshes can also be in extremely hot or cold conditions. With some special treatments, these barriers can be used under high pressure also, like a rectangular holding area for pouring concrete for pillars or slabs. These stainless steel concrete boxes can withstand a high amount of pressure of subsequent constructions. Also, stainless steel wire meshes are used in physical separating and sieving different-sized particles in many industries.
The selection of stainless steel wire mesh is playing a vital role to increase its durability. There are several factors to select the right stainless steel wire mesh.
Weather condition: this is the main factor to choose the stainless-steel wire mesh or weld mesh for your application. In this factor, the measurement of moisture or water, chemical, highest & lowest temperature, metal particle existence, etc.
USE: full specification of application like what is the role of welded mesh? why we selected this mesh? what output is expected? Etc
Chemical Reaction test: Make sure you have a chemical reaction table with you for your application as well as stainless steel grade.
Handle & care: make sure the shipment and transportation should be as per standards guidelines.
