Sintering is a process that improves the characteristics of woven wire mesh by bonding the contact points of all the wires together to form a mesh whose wires are securely fused in place. This is achieved through a combination of heat and pressure, and the result is a single layer sintered wire mesh.

Our 5-layer laminate is a standard and widely used type of sintered wire mesh . A single layer of fine woven wire mesh is placed between two layers of coarser square woven meshes, which is then added to two layers of a strong Dutch woven wire mesh and sintered together to form a strong plate. The single layer of fine woven wire mesh acts as the filtration layer, and can be customized to meet a particular filtration rating, ranging from 1 micron to 200 microns.

These layers generally consist of 316L stainless steel wire mesh , but special alloys such as Hastelloy®, Monel®, Inconel®, Alloy 20 etc. can be incorporated as well.

Our standard size is a 2’x4′ or 4’x4′ sheet, but different size discs, tubes, larger sheets and cones can be fabricated.

This type of sintered wire mesh laminate has uses in many industries including pharmaceuticals, chemical processing, food and beverage, and transportation. Applications include fluidized beds, liquid and gas filtration, pharmaceutical powder processing, and a variety of others including some that have yet to be developed and put into use.
