Weaving Standards
RR-W-360A
Federal Specification RR-W-360A  Industrial Wire Fabric   (obsolete)
This standard was published by the Federal Supply Service, General Services Administration, for the use of all Federal agencies, effective December 1970.  It was originally published as RR-C-00440 effective February 1954, which was superseded by RR-C-440 effective April 1956, which was then superseded by RR-W-360 effective February 1963.
RR-W-360A was, and remains the most referenced standard for wire cloth. It established types, classes, requirements and tolerances, as well as promoting 4 specific grades,  based on wire diameters for certain mesh designations.
 
ASTM E-437
American Society for Testing and Materials, Standard Specification for Industrial Wire Cloth and Screens referred to as "Square Opening Series".  This standard was published by ASTM Subcommittee E29.01 for Sieves, Sieving  Methods, and Screening Media, under Committee E29 for Particle Size Measurement, effective 1971.
The specification intended to cover wire cloth for general industrial use, and was commonly referenced, but was not applicable to industrial woven wire cloth as tolerances and specifications were based on the opening width rather than mesh count by domestic wire weavers.  The standard  designated 4 grades of mesh and wire diameter combinations similar to  RR-W-360, although working tolerances were based on the average width of a given opening.
 
A-A-1037A
Commercial Item Description A-A-1037A  Industrial Wire Fabric  (obsolete)
This standard was published by the General Services Administration (GSA) in lieu of RR-W-360,  as a commercial item description, effective April 1980.
The standard was general in nature and was not applicable as it stated that wire fabric design, size, and tolerances shall be in accordance with ASTM E-437. The Federal Supply Service Commissioner of the under GSA issued cancellation of standard and later determined that ANSI/AWCI-01-1992 will be applicable for government procurement.
 
ISO 9044:1999 044
 Industrial Woven Wire Cloth Requirements and Tests
This standard was published by the ISO TC24/SC3 technical committee of the International Standards Organization.  A detailed and comprehensive standard, which covers industrial woven wire cloth,  although it is not applicable for domestic wire cloth based on mesh designation. It specifies preferred designations based on aperture and grade, all of which utilize metric specifications, and the standard excludes the definition of mesh.
 
ANSI-AWCI-01
American National Standards Institute, ANSI:AWCI-01  (obsolete)
American National Standard for Industrial Wire Cloth
Published by ANSI, and sponsored by the American Wire Cloth Institute (AWCI), effective June 1992.
  This standard had the advantage of being the only standard to cover industrial wire cloth as specified and manufactured in the United States according to mesh. It was written to cover woven wire cloth, for industrial use including the separation of particles. 
AWCI-01 was prepared by a committee of the AWCI, and revised based on comments received through the ANSI canvass ballot procedures, which resulted in consensus approval.
It was attempted to develop the standard using RR-W-360 as the basis, and incorporate concepts such as defective openings and maximum number of blemishes from ISO 9044.
 
ASTM E-2016 
American Society for Testing and Materials Standard Specification for Industrial Woven Wire Cloth. Published by ASTM Subcommittee E29.01 for Sieves, Sieving  Methods, and Screening Media, under Committee E29 for Particle Size Measurement, effective 1999.
 
ASTM E-11 
American Society for Testing and Materials, Standard Specification for Wire Cloth and Sieves for Testing Purposes. Published by ASTM Subcommittee E29.01 for Sieves, Sieving  Methods, and Screening Media, under Committee E29 for Particle Size Measurement, effective 1925.
This standard covers sieve cloth specifications based on aperture tolerances. Sieve cloth is used for the sizing of particles, as opposed to industrial wire cloth used for the separation of particles. E-11 is currently being revised to more closely align with equivalent ISO 3310.
