Bronze is an alloy that consists primarily of copper, and thus, it exhibits many of the same characteristics of copper, like malleability, durability and ductility. In the wire mesh industry, commercial bronze wire mesh is the alloy commonly available from stock or through custom manufacturing. Typically, commercial bronze wire mesh has a material chemical composition of: 90% Copper, 10% Zinc.

Bronze woven wire mesh is superior to brass wire mesh in resistance to atmospheric corrosion, which is a major reason why bronze mesh usage spans from various marine and military applications to commercial and residential insect screen. For the industrial user of wire cloth, bronze wire mesh is harder and less malleable compared to a similar copper woven wire mesh, and as a result, it is commonly used in separation and filtration applications.

Bronze wire mesh has a brownish-red color, and this industrial product is increasingly popular for use in architectural, decorative and artistic applications.

Due to the intricacies of weaving these items, there are times where commercial bronze is no longer an option and phosphorous bronze must be used to weave. The chemical composition of phosphorous bronze wire mesh differs from bronze wire mesh in that a small amount of phosphorous is included. Phos bronze, as it is commonly referred to in the industry, exhibits physical and anti-corrosive properties slightly superior to copper and brass and has a chemical composition of approximately 94% Copper, 4.75& Tin, and .25% Phosphorous.

As a general rule, the weaving limit for commercial bronze is 100 x 100 Mesh, .0045” diameter wire; anything finer, like 150 x 150 Mesh or 200 x 200 Mesh, must be woven in phosphorous bronze. The limit for weaving phosphorous bronze mesh is recognized at 325 x 325 Mesh, .0014” diameter wire.
