Woven Mesh Materials Selection

Synthetic Materials

Polyester - Polyesters may be produced in numerous forms such as high temperatures, polyesters tend to shrink away from flames and self-extinguish upon ignition. Polyester fibers have high tenacity and E-modulus as well as low water absorption and minimal shrinkage in comparison with other industrial fibers.
Polyamide -

  • Variation of luster: nylon has the ability to be very lustrous, semilustrous or dull.

  • Durability: its high tenacity fibers are used for seatbelts, tire cords, ballistic cloth and other uses.

  • High elongation

  • Excellent abrasion resistance

  • Highly resilient (nylon fabrics are heat-set)

  • Paved the way for easy-care garments

  • High resistance to:

    • insects, fungi and animals

    • molds, mildew, rot

    • many chemicals

  • Used in carpets and nylon stockings

  • Melts instead of burning

  • Used in many military applications

Plain Steel - (also know as carbon steel)

Steel is an alloy of iron, carbon, and other materials, such as chromium, manganese, nickel, and molybdenum. Carbon is the principal hardening element in steel and as the carbon content increases, the hardness increases; ductility and weldability decreases. In general, steel is considered to be plain or carbon steel when no minimum content is specified, or when any element is added to obtain a desired effect. Carbon steel is more susceptible to corrosion than galvanized, aluminum, or stainless steel.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steels an alloy of iron, chromium, nickel, carbon, and other materials. The principal benefit of this product is its resistance to corrosion and/or oxidation. Series 300 stainless steels are chrome-nickel, non-hardening, and austenitic (nonmagnetic). Series 400 steels can be chrome, hardenable martensitic or non-hardenable ferritic (both magnetic).

304 Stainless Steel - 304 stainless steel is the most popular type. It contains both chromium and nickel to provide excellent balance between corrosion resistance and workability.
304L Stainless Steel - 304L is low-carbon stainless. The reduction in the amount of carbon makes 304L easier to weld, but reduces hardness.
316 - Better corrosion, pitting resistance and higher strength at elevated temperatures than 304.
316-L - Extra low carbon variation of 316 to avoid carbide precipitation due to welding.


Fiberglass Screen - Made from yarn composed of silicon, calcium, aluminum, and boron oxides. Lightweight and corrosion resistant. Makes an excellent, long-lasting insect screen.

Epoxy Coating

Epoxy is a two-part polyamide resin that is typically applied over aluminum or steel. The epoxy coating adds abrasion resistance. In wire cloth, the combination of aluminum or galvanized wire and an epoxy coating creates a tough cloth that provides both corrosion and abrasion resistance. Epoxy coated wire cloth is typically used for filtration applications. Epoxy coated wire cloth may also be used as insect screen where a premium screen is required.
