The following general metal comparison is intended as a guide only to help you select the optimum metal for your application. Virtually all metals can be woven into wire cloth. For best results, please describe the application on your order or discuss it with one of our sales representatives.
Type 316 - with its addition of 2% minimum Molybdenum, it provides considerable increased resistance to certain corrosive media. It also provides increased strength at high temperatures.
Type 304L and 316L - are lower in carbon content and are frequently used to retain corrosion resisting properties after welding.
Type 321 - containing Titanium, is frequently specified where there is a possibility of sensitization with a resulting loss of corrosion resistance.
Type 347 - is for welded assemblies which operate in corrosive environments, and is used to minimize sensitization. Type 347 contains Columbium, which does not volatilize during welding.
Type 430 - Stainless Steel contains 17% nominal Chromium and is more resistant to chemical attack and high temperature scaling. This alloy is magnetic and is not heat treatable.
