Metal Mesh

Expanded Metal

Expanded metal is produced from solid sheets or plates of metal. In the expanded process, the sheet is simultaneously slit and stretched into diamond-shaped holes of uniform size, shape and regularity. The advantage of expanded metal is that there is no waste of material in the expanding process and the final product is stronger per pound and lighter per foot than the original sheet or plate.

Materials:
Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Mild Steel, Titanium, Platinum, Nickel, Plastic, Copper, Brass, Galvanized

Other Applications:
Ceiling, Furniture, Filtration, Vehicles and others

Micro mesh expanded metal is special expanded metal with very small openings. The characteristics of micro mesh such as high conductivity, sound absorption and ability of refraction have expanded the aspects of its utilizations. The key factor of micro mesh expanded metal application is material. The most common materials of micro mesh are mild steel, aluminum, stainless steel, copper, nickel, titanium and other alloys.

Applications

  • Current-collecting expanded metal grids
  • Heat Transfer/Cooling system e.g. Heat Sinks
  • Aero Devices e.g. Lightning Strike Protection
  • Electronic shielding e.g. EMI/RFI Shielding
  • Sound Insulation e.g. Acoustic Ceilings
  • Medical, Automotive, Chemical, Mining, Filtration, Segregation and Petroleum industry
