The tables provide information based on laboratory tests of the more popular Stainless Steel grades utilized in wire cloth weaving.
Results should only be considered as a guide to the potential service life of woven wire cloth screens.
Secondary fabrication such as welding, soldering, brazing or heat treat processes may have adverse effects on screen life.
