The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:

This specification covers industrial woven wire cloth (also known as, wire mesh), for general use including the separation of particles. Wire cloth can be produced in many thousands of combinations of size and shape of opening, wire diameter, and made of any primary metal or metal alloy wire that is suitable for weaving. E2016 presents standard terms and definitions, notes the normal range of specifications woven, and establishes technical requirements that include wire tolerances, mesh tolerance for double-crimp square mesh, width opening tolerances for space cloth, and delivery requirements. Developed based on obsolete Federal RR-W-360A, it is the only Standard that covers wire cloth as specified and manufactured according to mesh count.
