Withstands temperatures up to 800'C. By far the most popular where strength and durability are of prime importance. All standard meshes are stocked in type 304 quality, and many are also available in type 316 which is more resistance to corrosion.
Range ~ 2-500 mesh
Plain Steel / Mild Steel
A low price material for use where corrosion resistance is not important. Mostly supplied plain, but certain meshes are also available galvanised.
Range ~ 6-80 mesh
An alloy of nickel and copper (70/30 approx) which combines strength with excellent resistance to acids, alkalis, sea water, etc.
Range ~ 20-250 mesh
An alloy of copper and tin which is strong and durable and will resist diluted acids and alkalis. Easily soldered.
Range ~ 30-200 mesh
Brass and Copper
Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, is harder but more subject to corrosion. Copper is less corrodible but, because of its softness, should not be used with abrasive substances. Both easily soldered.
Range ~ 8-100 mesh
