Finishing

Should your technical processes require

  • specifically smooth surfaces,
  • a finishing of the edges,
  • special coatings or
  • increased cleanliness requirements,

we can achieve this with a finishing respectively a modification of the properties of the cloth.

Flatness
Due to the weaving process wire cloths always have residual stresses. With special stretching processes these can be neutralised. The cloth is lying flat.

Rolling
One possibility to achieve a surface, that is as smooth as possible with a high resistance to displacement, is the rolling of the wire cloths with our calander.
   Sintering of cloth layers
The structures of sintered wire cloth laminates are adapted to the intended requirements of stability and filtration. Due to their consistency similar to sheet metal they are readily processable.

Heat treatment
During weaving, metal wires are cold formed. Strengthenings and residual stresses are the result. With a suitable heat treatment, e.g. annealing of stainless steel in the vacuum furnace, metal cloth is annealed stressless.
 
  Coating
Stainless steel wire cloth can be powder-coated with epoxy resin (usually in black or white). Moreover, we are able to manufacture metal cloth from colour-coated wires.

Cleanness
Depending on the processing or the application, lubricants or residues are unwanted on the surface of the cloth. We can wash the cloth or clean it with ultra-sound.

Pickling / electropolishing
In the event of an increased need for corrosion resistance and evenness of the surface, to maintain the passive layer, stainless steel wire cloth is pickled or electropolished.
