Steel is roll pressed at a very high temperature; usually above recrystallization temperature making it easy to work with and formed. The hot rolled steel grade A 36 is low carbon steel having exceptional mechanical properties. Steel Expanded Metal is an A36 hot rolled steel that is having diamond-shaped slits that are expanded or stretched to form a mesh either flattened or raised. It is used for several applications such as

  • Architectural purposes
  • Interior and exterior design
  • Safety and security purpose
  • Cages or boundaries and many more

Metalsnet has extensive stocks of Steel Expanded Metal available in different sizes.
