Choosing Wire Cloth
Wire cloth specifications can be confusing, considering all the combinations of materials, sizes, and construction. Coming to terms with the correct choices is difficult, and that is why it is best to trust professionals within the industry. At Newark Wire, we provide custom woven and off-the-shelf wire cloth, and we'd like to help ensure that you get the right products.
Below, we will be going over the most commonly used materials used to make wire cloth. If we do not discuss your desired material below, please give us a call to find out more information.
Steel is the most common metal for constructing wire cloth, and that is because it is the most versatile of all materials. Steel is strong, has a low cost, and has high ductility. Steel also resists corrosion and abrasions.
Nickel has the best resistance to corrosion, and this is even more than steel. Corrorosion resistance does come at a price, and so it is more expensive than stainless steel. Nickel is also made with different alloys to provide different characteristics.
- Hastelloy B
- Incoloy Alloy 800
- Carpenter 20 Cb-3
- Nichrome V
Other popular materials include brass, bronze, aluminum, and copper. Each of the above materials can be made with different alloys added into the foundation of the material.
Whether you are shopping for wire cloth or test sieves, make sure you do your homework and make the right decision.
