Brass woven wire cloth is excellent for marine and out of door applications because of its immunity to rust and salt solutions. Brass wire mesh and cloth is an ideal mesh for fabricating gasoline filters and baskets fro electropolishing. It possesses greater strength than copper or bronze.
Copper wire cloth: The primary usages of copper in wire cloth are in these applications requiring corrosion resistance, electrial and thermal conductivity, spark resistance and non-magnetic properties. Copper wire cloth finds wide usage in traveling water screens, radio frequency interference shielding, sugar and marine applications.
We use choice brass wire in manufacturing of brass wire cloth. High brass (70% copper, 30% zinc) wire and low brass (80% copper, 20% zinc) wire have much better abrasion resistance, better corrosion resistance and lower electrical conductivity when compared to copper wire.
Weaving method of brass wire mesh: twilled weave, plain weave and Dutch weave.
