What is flattened expanded metal?
Flattened expanded metal is made by passing raised expaned metal through a cold rolled reducing mill, leaving a flat and smooth surface.
By flattening the sheet, the bonds and strands are turned down to produce a smooth and flat surface – essentially elongating the LWD of the diamond.
After the metal mesh is flattened, the metal mesh plate will be sent through a sheet leveler to maintain its flatness.
Is standard or flattened expanded metal stronger?
Owing to the expanding process, the metal sheet can be expanded up to 8 times its original width, losing up to 75 % its weight per meter, and becomes stronger.
So it is lighter, less expensive than a single metal sheet.
