Meshes for automotive applications

The Expanded Metal Company offers a wide range of meshes for the automotive sector, including meshes used in vehicle build and in components, as well as industrial meshes for the manufacturing process.

We also offer expanded metal mesh products which are used in manufacturing facilities and through all parts of the automotive sector supply chain.

As expanded metal can weigh less than 80 per cent of the raw material from which it was made, it provides a lighter weight solution for vehicle components, and its impressive strength to weight ratio makes it a viable material for use in the automotive industry.
