Welded wire mesh has wide applications in the construction, agricultural and engineering industries, due to its high rigidity and strength. It is increasingly used in security applications and as machine guards.
The popular sizes are available from stock in standard sheets and rolls.
We can offer a cut to size panel service and supply non-standard mesh sizes to order.
Glossary of Terms
M-10 (Standard Stainless Steel Wire Mesh)
M-10 is NBCs standard stainless steel wire mesh produced with rigorous quality control.
It is widely used for many sophisticated screen printing applications such as Printed Circuit Board, Membrane Switch, Solar Cells, Ceramic Packages, Capacitors and so forth.
The reliable quality and print repeatability are well recognized by those markets.
M-13 (Upgraded Stainless Steel Wire Mesh)
M-13 is upgraded NBC stainless steel wire mesh which is woven with 30% stronger stainless steel wire compared with standard stainless steel wire. The extra tensile strength of M-13 achieves higher screen tension and optimizes.
M-30 (Super Stainless Steel Wire Mesh)
M-30 has exceptionally low elongation and large mesh open area. It is woven with super stainless steel wire with 3 times stronger tensile strength than that of standard stainless steel wire. It minimizes mesh interference to print image while ensuring excellent paste
transition; making it suitable for challenging applications utilizing high viscosity paste, such as Solar Cell, MLCC, LTCC and so forth.
W-40 (Tungsten Wire Mesh, Next Generation)
M-40 is the next generation of wire meshes woven with tungsten wire which has even greater physical stability and print repeatability than the above super stainless steel wire mesh. Comparison of tensile strength per sq.mm is shown in the chart next page above.
HDM (Heavy Deposit Mesh)
HDM is developed for specific screen-printing applications that require a heavy ink deposit. The below magnifying photo shows unique structure of HDM compared with standard wire mesh.
