Weave Types

Plain Weave Mesh:

Plain weave is the simplest and most common form of weaving, each shute passes over and under alternative warp wires at right angles.

Twilled Weave Mesh:

Used where heavier wires are used to produce a square opening in a mesh. Each shute wire alternately goes over two warp wires and under two warp wires. By “staggering” the interlacing, a diagonal pattern is produced.

Plain Filter Cloth

Also known as “Dutch Weave”, the Filter Cloth weave pattern is identical to Plain Weave, but uses heavier warp and lighter shute wires. The shute wires are then crimped tightly, resulting in a small triangular opening.

Twilled Filter Cloth:

Also known as “Twilled Dutch Weave”, this pattern is similar to Plain Filter Weave, using different wire sizes and an overlapping shute. This allows twice the number of wires per inch.

Micron Weave:

Similar to Twilled Filter Cloth, using finer warp wires, heavier shutes, a higher mesh count and specialized wire placement. Extremely durable, it is possible to have as many as 1,000,000 openings per square inch.

Grid Specifications:

A special type of plain weave using very fine wire to produce a high transmission. Usually woven in refractory metals and stainless steel, open areas as high as 95% can be produced.
