Woven stainless steel mesh is used for a large number of applications, including filtration, ventilation, machine guards, pest proofing. Woven 36 Mesh is a fine mesh with a small hole size. Given that the material is flexible, it may need the support of a frame to add rigidity.
The mesh count refers to how many holes there are on a linear inch on the material i.e. if you place a ruler on the mesh, our 36 Mesh would have 36 holes per linear inch.
This mesh is only available in our higher quality grade 316 stainless steel (sometimes called Marine Grade). Grade 316 stainless steel contains molybdenum, which is added to boost its resistance to corrosion and should be selected if the material is to be used in a salt water or coastal environment.
The material is priced per linear metre on the website.
All measurements +/- 5%. If you require a micrometer reading of the wire thickness then please call us on 01782 820 970.
Hi, you kindly sent us some Stainless Mesh samples. The client is asking us what life span would be expected for a Marine Environment.
Please see below a link from the British Stainless Steel Association website which provides some information on lifespan:
As you can see, the estimate for corrosion to penetrate 1mm in a marine environment with grade 304 stainless steel would be approx. 145 years (as opposed to 260 years for grade 316). Although this seems like a long time, some pitting and staining of the grade 304 material may occur relatively quickly in a marine environment, which obviously has an impact from an aesthetic point of view.
Generally speaking, grade 316 stainless is the preferred option in marine environments. However, any stainless steel option will be preferable to a galvanized finish mild steel option.
Many thanks. Everything has been received, as expected, and is satisfactory in every way. A very good all round service - thank you.
