In our previous posts we have discussed the terminology of woven mesh and the formulas for identifying woven mesh. This post is dedicated to the three different weaves we stock, plain weave, twill weave and intercrimp.
Plain weave is the most common and simplest weave. Each warp wire (the wire running parallel to the length of the cloth) passes alternatively over and under the wires running transversely through the cloth at 90 degree angles.
Intercrimp has extra crimps in the warp and weft wire between the intersections.
Selvage is the term for self finished edge. In woven mesh, selvages are the edges the run parallel to the warp (the longitudinal wire the run the length of the mesh), and are created by the weft wire looping back at the end of each row.
