Additional Information

Additional Information

N/A Brass woven wire mesh is comprised of copper and zinc. A chemical composition of 65% Copper - 35% Zinc (a.k.a., 270 Yellow Brass) is recognized as the standard for stocked wire mesh in the industry. 70% Copper - 30% Zinc (a.k.a., 260 High Brass) is typically reserved for custom manufacturing. The presence of zinc in brass wire mesh is important because it provides added abrasion resistance and allows for higher tensile strengths. And because it is primarily composed of copper, it maintains many of copper's unique characteristics, namely malleability and resistance to certain acids.

Also, due to its unique golden color and unique characteristics, brass wire mesh is used in decorative, architectural and even artistic applications.
