MARKET GRADE
The market grade has larger wire diameters and is stronger than bolting or mill grades, but have less open area.

BOLTING CLOTH GRADE
The bolting cloth grade has a smaller wire diameter and consequently a high percentage of open area.  This provides greater throughput capacity.

MILL GRADE
The mill grade wire diameters are between the market and bolting cloth grades.  They are a compromise when strength and high capacity is needed.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
All three grades are available in Type 304 and Type 316 Stainless Steel.  Many products are also available in Type 430 Stainless Steel, which is magnetic.

In accordance with our policy of continuously improving our products, the above listed technical specifications are subject to change without notice.
