Decorative Aluminum Expanded Mesh, also known as aluminum expanded mesh, is made through cutting, expanding, surface treatment with the latest technology. Its mesh body is lighter and has strong load-bearing capacity. The most common type of aluminum expanded mesh has diamond-shaped holes, and other hole types include hexagonal, circular, triangular, fish scale holes, etc. It is widely used in households, agriculture, construction, medicine, filtration, protection, insect prevention, handicraft manufacturing, and other fields.

Surface Treatment for Decorative Expanded Metal

Anodized – Aluminum Expanded Metal Mesh

  • Aluminum expanded metal that have undergone surface pretreatment undergo anodization on the substrate surface under certain process conditions, forming a dense, porous, and strongly adhesive AL203 film, which is a perfect protective and decorative layer.
  • More color option: Sealing of aluminum expanded metal mesh pores: The pores of the porous oxide film generated after anodization are sealed, enhancing the oxide film’s resistance to pollution, corrosion, and wear. The oxide film is colorless and transparent. By utilizing the strong adsorption of the pre-sealed oxide film, some metal salts are adsorbed and deposited within the film pores, allowing the expanded metal mesh to exhibit various colors beyond its natural color (silver), such as black, antique bronze, golden yellow, and stainless steel.

Powder Coated – Galvanized Steel Expanded Metal

  • Powder coating material is sprayed onto the surface of the expanded metal by electrostatic spraying machine and then baked at high temperature. the powder evenly adheres to the surface of the workpiece, forming a powdery coating. This surface treatment effect is different according to the powder coating material.
  • The spraying effects of powder coating surpass traditional painting processes in mechanical strength, adhesion, corrosion resistance, and aging resistance. However, the cost of powder coating is higher compared to traditional painting processes.

PVDF Coated -Aluminum Expanded Metal Mesh

  • PVDF is a type of electrostatic spraying, also known as fluorocarbon spraying, is a liquid spraying method. PVDF-coated spraying exhibits excellent resistance to fading, resistance to frosting, corrosion resistance against atmospheric pollution (such as acid rain), strong UV resistance, robust crack resistance, and the ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. It surpasses the capabilities of general coatings.

Differences between PVDF Coating and Powder Coating

Aspect PVDF Coating Powder Coating
Functional Aspect PVDF Coated surpasses powder coating in functionality by a significant margin, offering superior wear resistance, weather resistance, UV resistance, and resistance to fading. Fluorocarbon spraying is commonly used outdoors。 Powder coating is more prevalent indoors.
Price Aspect The cost of PVDF Coated is several times higher than that of powder coating. It is much cheaper than PVDF
Different Operations Fluorocarbon spraying involves applying liquid coating to the surface of a workpiece. Involves charging plastic powder through high-pressure electrostatic equipment and applying the coating to the surface of the workpiece under the influence of an electric field.
Different Coatings It is based on polyvinylidene fluoride resin or includes metallic aluminum powder as a colorant. Powder coating includes polyurethane, polyvinyl resin, epoxy resin, hydroxyl polyester resin, and epoxy polyester resin.
