MicroMesh 2017-12-05T23:08:50+00:00

Expanded metals and polymers are produced on expanding lines designed to meet strict product specifications. The mesh is available from most metals, alloys and polymers. The number of openings as well as corresponding open areas are infinitely variable.

  • Single unit material structure
  • Anti-ravel
  • Multiple opening profiles
  • Flexible
  • Easily formed

Precision expanded materials are available in 3-D and 2-D profiles, provide improved strength and weight reduction, and may reduce costs.

MicroMesh is produced from most light gauge metals and foils into a high precision mesh material. MicroMesh exhibits solid mechanical characteristics and excellent electrical properties.

  • Medical
  • Lightning Strike Protection
  • Batteries.
  • Composites
  • Renewable Energy
  • Shielding

MicroMesh is available in Aluminum, Copper, Inconel, Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel, Zinc and most any ductile alloy.

PolyMesh is produced from most light gauge plastic and polymer films, and is used primarily in filtration applications where a high-performance polymer is required. PolyMesh films provide membrane support and act as a support for backing and purification.

  • ECTFE
  • Nylon
  • Polyethylene
  • PTFE
  • PCV
  • PEEK
  • PET

PolyMesh can also be found in food service use, medical devices and wherever other precision polymer mesh materials are required.

Materials

Our precision micromesh options are available in a variety of different materials. Find the best fit for your application.

Micromesh products are offered in copper, which is a soft, malleable, and ductile material. It contains high thermal and electrical properties and is a reliable material for Micromesh because it is customizable and corrosion resistant. Copper is environmentally friendly and the material is 100% recyclable.

Cupro-Nickel helps micromesh products to remain intact due to its outstanding formability. The combination of iron and manganese give it increased strengthening potential. Micromesh products in cupro-nickel resist corrosion from seawater and other related environments.

Titanium’s strength to weight ratio is ideal for micromesh products. It also has the highest corrosion resistance in seawater and chlorine. It may be alloyed with other elements to produce a strong, lightweight material. Titanium is nonmagnetic with low thermal and electrical properties.

Nickel metal micromesh products are both malleable and ductile with resistance to deformation. With its tight tolerance, it is a good material for filtering light or sound. Additionally, it has excellent thermal and electric conductivity.

Micromesh products benefit from weathering steel because of its natural yet unique oxidized look. It maintains high resistance to corrosion and weathering side effects. Its tensile strength makes is particularly effective.

Micromesh

Micromesh is precision expanded mesh manufactured to specific weight and dimensional requirements. All materials are quality and process assured to ISO 9001:2008 or AS9100. We manufacture from .001″ or (25µm) thick, up to 48” (1250mm) in width in either sheets or coil from most any commercially available or proprietary ductile material or alloy.

Micromesh expanded metal is used in a variety of applications. The common uses for micromesh include:

  • Lightning strike protection for composite structures
  • Batteries
  • Fuel cells
  • EMI/RFI shielding
  • Filtration
  • Acoustics
  • Audio speaker grilles
  • Facades
  • Heating
  • Medical
  • Retail store displays
  • Water treatment
  • Ventilation/HVAC
  • Wherever specialized mechanical, electrical and precision characteristics are required.
Micromesh

Micromesh can be manufactured from most any commercially available or proprietary ductile material or alloy. We frequently produce a variety of base metals and alloys including stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, silver, copper, brass, nickel, mild steel, and zinc.

Micromesh precision expanded metals are available from .001″ or 25µm (microns) thick, up to 48” (1250mm) in width in either sheets or coil lengths. Micromesh is available in a variety of both 2D and 3D designs including diamond, square, sound and hexagonal patterns. All patterns can be modified through specialized manufacturing methods to increase or decrease the open area. In addition, Micromesh can be further customized to include solid or ribbon sections incorporated into the sheet to enhance the material’s appearance. The one-piece construction of Micromesh expanded metals creates strands and bonds of the mesh shapes that add strength and rigidity to the product which won’t ravel under normal circumstances.

Micromesh provides significantly greater conductivity than woven mesh when used for lightning strike protection, reduces the volume of unwanted frequency levels when used for EMI/RFI shielding, provides excellent sound absorption when used for acoustic applications, and offers the best combination of sound transparency and visual concealment when used for audio speaker grilles.

Micromesh

The wide variety of finishing options available for our precision expanded metals provides our customers with solutions to best meet their needs. Micromesh products are available in multiple base metals and alloys including brass, copper, nickel, titanium, zinc, mild steel, silver, aluminum and stainless steel. Micromesh products can be finished using anodization, e-coating, painting, powder coating, anodized, e-coated, painted, powder-coated, or composite finishing options.
