Mild Steel

Mild or plain steel is widely used and relatively inexpensive. It is strong and although it easily corrodes, it is very durable.

Mild steel has a low carbon content (up to 0.3%) and is therefore neither brittle nor ductile, making it suitable for welding, bending, forming and general engineering applications.

Due to its poor corrosion-resistance, mild steel it must be painted or otherwise protected and sealed in order to prevent rust from damaging it. A light coating of oil or grease can help control rust.

It is darker in colour to stainless steel.

It is commonly used for fire guards and other engineering projects.

Plain Weave

Plain weave woven wire cloth is used for the majority of wire cloth woven by The Mesh Company. Each warp wire crosses alternately above and below every weft wire and vice versa.

Warp and weft wires are normally of the same diameter.

Plain weaves are used for the majority of commercial applications and for filtration where a high flow rate is required.
