Aluminium mesh is generally used in areas and locations that are susceptible to fire and have a high incidence of rural fires. It is subject to cutting with the use of a Stanley knife, even though not as easily as fibreglass mesh, with rigidity and strength for product quality.
Aluminium is a material with moderately low weight, by and large, high rigidity and is a satisfactory conductor. Similarly to stainless steel, there are many alloys available for aluminium, each of them with its specific attributes.
These attributes show up in weldability, how it tends to be distorted and erosion opposition. Aluminium is mainly used because it has a mixture of lightweight and high strength.
