Knitted wire mesh is a metal wire or plastic strand knitted into a mesh structure in very much the same way as stockings or sweaters. Knitting produces mesh of interlocking loops. These loops can move relative to each other in the same plane without distorting the mesh, giving knitted mesh a two-way stretch.
The loop structure gives knitted wire fabric greater in plane springiness or two-dimensional flexibility compared to woven mesh or fabrics. Knitted mesh can be crimped or compressed to alter characteristics for specific applications.
Stainless steel knitted wire mesh offers excellent properties such as corrosion resistance, alkali and acid resistance, long service life, rust resistance and heat resistance. As a result of these properties, it finds popular uses in auto parts and other engineering applications.
