Mesh is a flat sparsely woven or webbed wire fabric product (wire fabric) designed to grade the bulk material by size or to separate it from liquids or gases (filtering).
- wire steel cloth with square mesh - GOST 3826-82 ;
- plain woven mesh (standard and stain-proof) - per GOST 5336-80 , also known as "rabitsa" mesh;
- welded steel mesh per - GOST 23279-85 , TR-14-178-266-94 .
According to GOST 2715-75 meshes are classified - by the way of manufacture – into woven, braided, twisted, slit-type, welded and assembled from prestrained wire. Altogether there are some 27 types of mesh including:
- cold-rolled band from low-carbon steel per GOST 530-81 ;
- steel baling band per GOST 3560-73 ;
- cold-rolled band from tool and spring steel per GOST 2283-79 ;
- spiral security barrier from "Yegoza" reinforced barbed tape;
- cold-rolled band from carbon structural steel per GOST 2284-79 ;
- cold-rolled band from corrosion-proof and heat-resistant steel per GOST 4986-79 ;
- cold-rolled band from precision alloys per GOST 10160-75 , GOST 12766.2-77 ;
- nichrome band per ТR 14-1-3223-81 .
Band – thin sheet steel with width less than 500 mm.
According to the way of its manufacture, the band is subdivided into hot/cold-rolled produced at band-rolling machines by cutting steel coils into narrow strips.
There are different band types including:
