Do you know How to Distinguish Stainless Steel Wire Mesh and White Wire Mesh?

Feb. 04, 2021

As a Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Supplier, share it with you.

The definition of stainless steel refers to steel that is resistant to weak corrosive media such as air, steam, and water, and chemically corrosive media such as acid, alkali, and salt, also known as stainless acid-resistant steel. Stainless steel wire mesh is woven with plain weave by stainless steel wire mesh that has been bent into a wave shape in advance. The corrosion resistance of stainless steel wire mesh depends on the alloying elements contained in the steel. White steel wire mesh is the common name of wire mesh woven by high-speed steel wires. White steel is not a professional term, and there is no specific definition. It refers to steel that does not rust, and roughly means that the color is approximately white steel, including stainless steel, high-speed steel, etc. White steel and stainless steel are not the same material. But in some cases, it refers to the same thing, such as in a chemical plant.

Therefore, the method to distinguish between stainless steel wire mesh and white wire mesh is:

1. Grind it on a grinder, the white wire mesh is the most powerful spark branch.

2. Another thing is that it can be distinguished for a long time. The white wire mesh and the stainless steel wire mesh are actually rusty. The difference is that the rust of the white wire mesh is yellow rust and the rust of the stainless steel wire mesh is gray rust.

White steel is a common name. The scientific name is "high-speed tool steel". It is generally used to make cutting tools for machine tools. It is generally called "white steel knife". It contains carbon and manganese. Stainless steel mainly contains chromium, such as 2Cr13, and good stainless steel also contains nickel and titanium, such as 1Cr18Ni9Ti, which is resistant to acid and alkali corrosion. White steel wire mesh is usually labeled 304 and 302 wire mesh, while stainless steel rarely only has (1Gr18Ni9Ti), (2Gr18Ni7Ti) and (0Gr18Ni9Ti).

White steel wire mesh is more suitable in damp places. It is best to choose white steel wire mesh with a higher chromium and nickel content, because it can avoid rust in a short time. At the same time, the length of time for white steel wire mesh to rust and the protective film of white steel There is a certain relationship, so try not to damage (such as scratches, welding can be damaged) not only easy to rust, but also affect the appearance.
