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 your metallurgist.
Low carbon C1008 most commonly used. High carbon/hard drawn for
high tensile strength. Oil tempered high carbon for high tensile
strength and good abrasion resistance.
Long life under severe corrosion and temperature conditions...Type
304 SS is the most common...other types available as specified.
HEAT RESISTING ALLOYS
High nickel chromium and nickel copper alloys such as monel and
inconel withstand temperatures up to 1800 degrees F...resist
corrosion in acids, sea water and caustic solutions.
Excellent corrosion resistance in most environments except sulfurous
conditions...most commonly used petrochemical and heat treating
Light weight, good electrical conductor and resists atmospheric
corrosion...5056 alloy is used for higher strength.
Good formability with excellent electrical and thermal conductivity...resists
corrosion from fresh and saltwater, alkaline solutions and atmosphere...low
Most common 80% copper/20% zinc...good formability with lower
thermal conductivity and higher tensile strength than copper...resists
corrosion like copper.
Most common 90% copper/10% zinc...better corrosion resistance
and lower strength than brass.
Such as tantalum, molybdenum, silver and platinum can be furnished
