Stainless Steel Expanded Metal For Sale

Stainless steel expanded metal

Stainless steel expanded metal refers to a stretchable net made of stainless steel, which is a metal net with both flexibility and load-bearing capacity, formed by stamping, stretching, and weaving stainless steel plates. Compared with metal plates, stainless steel expanded metal has a more diverse shape due to its unique flexibility and plasticity. It can be woven in different ways, such as flat weave and diagonal weave, and can also be woven into different densities to achieve different functions.

Generally speaking, stainless steel expanded metal with a higher density is used for filtering and screening, while those with lower density can be used as cage nets for mining to prevent stone chips from falling. In addition, stainless steel expanded metal can be made into various container products, which are durable and corrosion-resistant.

Uses of Stainless Expanded Metal

Stainless expanded metal can be used for filter cores, papermaking, filtration, aquaculture, battery mesh, packaging mesh, mechanical facility protection, handicraft manufacturing, speaker covers, decoration, children’s chairs, baskets, and road protection, as well as for foot pedals of oil tankers, heavy machinery and boilers, oil mine wells, locomotives, ten-thousand-ton ships, work platforms, escalators, and walkways.

In addition, stainless expanded metal can also be used as reinforcement for buildings, highways, and bridges. It can be used in residential areas for escalators, passages, mines, locomotives, and roads. Stainless steel expanded metal can also be used to make various machine protective covers, kitchen utensils, food machinery, air filters, and heat dissipation protective covers.

Types of expanded stainless steel

Expanded stainless steel mesh basket 

Expanded stainless steel mesh basket is welded and treated with processes such as surface passivation, electropolishing, and beautification. The surface is as bright as a mirror and can be bent into various handicrafts using bending techniques. The mesh can be woven in a plain pattern, and the surface can be polished, plastic-coated, spray-coated, or coated in any color as per customer requirements.

Expanded stainless steel sieve mesh

Expanded stainless steel sieve mesh is widely used in screening, filtration, protection, and decoration, with applications in mining, petroleum, chemical, food, pharmaceutical, mechanical manufacturing, building decoration, electronics, aerospace, and other industries. Stainless steel sieve mesh also includes different weaving methods and treatment processes.

Expanded stainless steel filter mesh

Expanded stainless steel filter mesh also has different weaving methods and can be divided into single-layer or multi-layer according to different filtration standards. Generally speaking, the more layers of filter mesh, the better the filtration effect. Compared with sieve mesh, filter mesh is more commonly used for liquid material filtration.
