The type of mesh weave you choose when you purchase sintered wire cloth will determine the characteristics of that cloth and whether it can hold up against the job you want it to perform. Each type of weave changes the functionality of the sintered wire cloth, so it is important that you pick the right weave for the job!
Two of the most common and popular mesh weaves are the plain weave and the plain Dutch weave. The plain weave is the simplest type of weave. When you look close at the weave, you’ll see that each wire crosses over and under the other, creating a stable mesh. The plain weave is flexible and can be used in a wide variety of ways.
A plain Dutch weave is very much like a plain weave, except that one wire is heavier than the other. This makes the plain Dutch weave stronger and sturdier than a plain weave and more tightly knit together for better filtering.
The plain weave and Dutch plain weave are just two types of mesh weaves. Give us a call today and we can help you determine the right type of mesh weave for your project!
