310 Stainless Steel Wire Mesh – Alloy Overview

Type 310 stainless steel wire mesh has a higher nickel content than T-309 stainless steel, and provides good strength and oxidation resistance at temperatures up to 2000°F. T-310 stainless steel is often referred to as 25-20 stainless steel due to its 25% chromium and 20% nickel composition. 310 stainless steel offers superior performance to both T-304 and T-309 in most environments as a result of this high chromium and nickel content. Some characteristics of 310 stainless steel wire cloth which dictate its use are:

  • Austenitic stainless steel.
  • Non-magnetic when annealed.
  • Slightly magnetic when cold worked.
  • Withstands outdoor exposure without rusting.
  • Superior corrosion resistance vs. T-304 & T-309 in broad range of industrial and chemical settings.
  • Resists oxidation at 2000°F temperatures.
  • Heating permitted up to 2000°F – 2100°F temperatures.
  • Can be cut, formed, and welded.

Industries & Applications

T-310 stainless steel wire cloth is principally used in applications where a combination of corrosion and oxidation resistance, strength, and toughness is a must.  As such, T-310 wire cloth is commonly used in chemical processing equipment, heat exchangers, and oil field / refinery equipment.  Additional industries and applications which commonly use T-310 stainless steel wire cloth include:
