Stainless steel mesh woven in plain weave construction using small wire diameter, thus providing a high percentage open area.
CALENDERED WIRE CLOTH
Wire cloth that has passed through a pair of heavy rolls to reduce the thickness of the fabric, or to flatten the intersections to provide a smooth surface.
Space between adjacent parallel wires
Number of openings in a linear inch
Corrugations in wires to permit locking them in place when perpendicular to each other.
Warp and shute wires lay in each crimp.
DOUBLE INTERMEDIATE CRIMP
Usually the warp wires lay in every crimp in the shute wires, and the shute wires lay in every other crimp in the warp wires.
FILL WIRES OR SHUTE WIRES
Wires running across the width of the cloth as a woven.
Wire size. To avoid possible errors, specify wire diameter in decimal sizes rather than gauge numbers.
Warp and shute wires lay in every other crimp.
Most commonly used sizes of industrial wire cloth specifications selected for general purpose work.
Number of openings in a linear inch measured from the center of one wire to a point 1" distant.
Clear opening between adjacent parallel wires; not affected by diameter of the wire.
Each warp wire and each shute wire pass over one and under the next adjacent wire; wires are crimped in the weaving operation.
PLAIN DUTCH WEAVE
Warp wires are generally larger than the shute wires. Shute wires are closely spaced to provide a dense weave with wedge shaped openings.
Finished edges running the length of the roll to prevent unraveling.
Wire cloth with mesh count the same in both directions.
Each warp wire and each shute wire pass successively over two and under the next adjacent pair of wires
TWILLED DUTCH WEAVE
Combination of Plain Dutch and Twilled weave
