Expanded metal is a form of metal stock made by shearing a metal plate in a press, so that the metal stretches, leaving diamond-shaped voids surrounded by interlinked bars of the metal. The most common method of manufacture is to simultaneously slit and stretch the material with one motion.
Each sheet is expanded in the regular form and then passed through a cold rolled reducing mill. In this process the length of the sheet is elongated - usually about 5% - but the width of the sheet remains the same. The sheet is then sent through a leveler to maintain its flatness.
Expanded metal is used in grates and in outdoor furniture (e.g. benches) or fencing. It is often used for guarding to prevent contact with hot surfaces or machinery.
Expanded metal is often used for architectural details and finds use in security applications such as in the walls of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility because, in heavier grades, it is difficult to breach without heavy cutting equipment or explosives
Expanded metal mesh including:aluminum plate mesh,small steel plate mesh,steel plate mesh and stainless steel plate mesh;according to the hole,it is divided into diamond,square,round,triangle,scale hole,it is strong and wear-resisting,artistic and tasteful.
Many materials can be expanded including mild steel, aluminium, stainless steel, brass...
A major advantage of expanded metal mesh is that it is formed from a single piece of material so that the process is not wasteful and therefore cost effective.
Typically wrapped with water-proof paper then shrink wrapped, carton package is available.
- The expanded metal mesh is widely used for civil construction, cement pouring, machinery and equipment protection, artware manufacture, high-grade speaker net hoods. It is also be used as reinforcement in the construction industry, roads and bridges. Expanded metal mesh can also be used as fence for sports places and road greening belt. Heavy expanded metal mesh can be used for oil tank truck pedal nets, heavy machinery, as well as the working platforms, staircases and walkways of boilers, locomotives, 10,000-ton ships, etc.
