Expanded Metal mesh is traditionally seen as a metal material with diamond shaped holes. Expanded Metal is produced by an expanding machine, which uses a pressured slitting and stretching process to transform solid metal sheets and coils into expanded mesh. In addition to the diamond shaped range of meshes, the expanding metal process can produce a dynamic variety of patterns and shapes. A range of materials are expanded on site from platinum to a fine guaze for jewellery to 6mm plates of steel for offshore walkways. Plastics, Aluminium, copper, brass, stainless steel, in fact any ductile metal can all be expanded in a range of material thickness and patterns.
