410L Stainless Steel Wire Mesh – Alloy Overview

Type 410L stainless steel wire mesh is a ferritic stainless steel alloy with one of the lowest chromium contents (10.5-12.5%) of all stainless steels; as such, it is most commonly used in mildly corrosive environments, where localized rust is acceptable, and in decorative applications.  T-410L has both low carbon and low nitrogen content which maximizes its corrosion resistance and ductility. Being a ferritic stainless steel, T-410L wire cloth cannot be strengthened or hardened by heat treatment, but does have good resistance to stress-corrosion. Additionally, given its low chromium and nickel content, T-410L is generally cheaper than most austenitic stainless steels, such as T-304. Some characteristics of 410L stainless steel wire cloth which dictate its use are:

  • Ferritic stainless steel.
  • Magnetic in all conditions.
  • Localized rusting may occur in mildly corrosive environments.
  • Heating permitted between 850°F – 1100°F temperatures.
  • Can be cold worked and softened by annealing.
  • Can be cut, formed, and welded.

Industries & Applications

T-410L stainless steel wire cloth is principally used in applications where carbon steel, galvanized steel, or aluminum alloys provide undesirable results (given its resistance to chemical environments and chloride stress corrosion). That said, T-410L is not used in chloride environments if strong resistance to pitting is required (T-304 would be used). Some specific applications where T-410L stainless steel wire mesh is used include architectural, furnaces, and mining & quarrying.
