Copper and its alloys have been used for thousands of years, so it is no surprise it is a highly demanded option within the wire mesh industry. Copper wire mesh is ductile, malleable and has high thermal and electrical conductivity. As a result, it is popularly used as RFI shielding, in Faraday Cages, in roofing, in HVAC and in numerous electrical-based applications.
Copper wire mesh is durable in many types of atmospheres. Although it is softer than a similar stainless steel wire mesh, it is also resistant to atmospheric corrosion but attacked by oxidizing agents such as nitric acid, ferric chloride, cyanides, and ammonia acid compounds
Types of Copper Wire Mesh
1. Copper CDA 110 UNS C11000 special purpose copper for hot forgings. It has excellent conductivity and corrosion resistance, and is preferred when conductivity is the prime requisite. Widely used for current-carrying forged connecter studs, lugs, cable clamps contacts, welder parts, and non-current carrying structural parts. Composition [Cu 99.9%] Specifications ASTM B33
Indo German Wire Screen copper wire mesh is woven to the industry standard and when exposed to the atmosphere it will naturally develop a thin green layer, known as patina. Copper wire mesh's unique colour makes it a very popular option for many different types of users, including designers, artists, architects and home owners. Home owners and designers opt for copper woven wire mesh for residential projects including gutter guards, soffit screens, insect screen, fireplace screen, or even custom manufactured infill panels or decorative wall panels. Sculptors, wood workers, metal artisans and architects also prefer copper mesh because of its remarkable dark amber-red colour and its broad appeal to a wide audience.
Without a doubt, copper wire mesh is critical to many industries, and it is often at the centre of technological advancements in a broad range of fields. Over the past few years, customers have selected various copper mesh specifications for use in:
