Sintering is a process that improves the characteristics of woven wire mesh by bonding the contact points of all the wires together to form a mesh whose wires are securely fused in place. This is achieved through a combination of heat and pressure, and the result is a single layer sintered wire mesh.
Can you sinter together multiple layers of wire mesh?
Yes, a more common application of the sintering process involves laminating multiple layers of woven wire mesh together to form a sintered mesh part that compared to a single layer of wire mesh has increased mechanical strength, greater preservation of filter rating under pressure, is easier to clean and has better structural integrity. A multiple layer sintered wire mesh part can maintain the filtration rating of its finest mesh layer, while also maintaining the mechanical strength of its coarser support layers.
