314 Stainless Steel Wire Mesh – Alloy Overview

Type 314 stainless steel is the same alloy as T-310 stainless steel except for the addition of a higher silicon content. The higher silicon content, at 1.5-3%, improves high temperature oxidation resistance allowing for maximum resistance during carburization. Similar to T-310, T-314 has a higher nickel content than T-309 stainless steel, and provides good strength and oxidation resistance at temperatures up to 2000°F. 314 stainless steel does however become brittle if subjected to prolonged temperature exposure within a 1200°F – 1500°F range. Some characteristics of T-314 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.
  • Higher silicon content provides maximum resistance during carburization as compared to T-310.
  • Resists oxidation at 2000°F temperatures.
  • Can be cut, formed, and welded.

Industries & Applications

T-314 stainless steel wire cloth is principally used in applications where carburization of the wire mesh is to occur. Additionally, T-314 wire cloth is used in heat exchangers and furnaces.
