Brass wire mesh is often used for decorative purposes because of its bright golden appearance. Brass has a soft yellow color that somewhat resembles gold. It is relatively resistant to discoloration.

 

Brass wire mesh includes brass wire mesh, copper wire mesh, phosphor bronze wire mesh, gingham wire mesh, hexagonal wire mesh, and knitted wire mesh. The material is brass, purple brass or phosphor bronze.

 

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Like copper, brass is soft and ductile and is subject to attack by ammonia and similar salts. As wire mesh, the most commonly used brass woven wire mesh is called "270 brass" and is chemically composed of approximately 65% copper and 35% zinc. The "260 high brass", consisting of 70% copper and 30% zinc, is also popular in the mesh industry, especially for custom products.

 

Brass wire mesh is made of brass wire. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. It has better wear resistance, better corrosion resistance and lower electrical conductivity than copper.

 

Features of brass wire mesh.

 

Corrosion resistance, wear resistance, rust resistance, acid or alkali resistance

 

Electrically and thermally conductive

 

Good ductility and tensile strength

Applications of brass wire mesh.

In most cases, industrial-grade woven brass wire screens are golden yellow in color, and their unique color makes them attractive for architectural, decorative and even artistic applications.

 

They can be used as decorative screens for lamps and cabinets, fireplace screens, filter trays, duct screens, windows and porch screens.

 

They also filter electron beams and electronic displays, and can be used for RFI shielding, Faraday cages.

 

Stainless steel woven wire mesh is available in plain, twill, Dutch, etc. It is widely used as general window and door screens, security screens, or made into filter elements for high-precision filtration processes.

 

Brass wire mesh will glow when polished, but may discolor over time if not maintained. Brass is most likely to lose its luster when used outdoors, which can take as little as six months. In the desert, it can take 20 years or more.

 

Use a mild phosphoric acid household cleaner to remove surface oils first, then rinse well to maintain the brass mesh's luster. Children and pets should be kept away, and cleaning personnel should wear masks and gloves. Discoloration can also be prevented by painting, waxing or periodically oiling the net to protect it from atmospheric conditions.
