Our Stainless Wire Mesh can be fabricated into almost any shape using standard sheet metal techniques. The #6 mesh size is woven from 0.035" diameter Type 304 stainless steel wire with 0.132" openings, resulting in 63% open area. The wires are crimped to stay in position (not welded). It is great for protecting oil coolers and radiators from medium objects and debris down to 0.132" diameter.
To protect against larger, heavier objects as well, combine a layer of this mesh with a layer of our Coarse Mesh #4 (Part No. 3642-Size).
Note: Shipped as flat sheets. This material cannot be folded or rolled into a cylinder without permanently deforming it. The 24x36 inch sheet is the largest size we can supply.
