Although both diamond netting and square netting are extruded, the processes used to produce the products result in quite different product characteristics, which may be important in some applications. Diamond netting is produced with the strands in each direction overlaying each other. The joint structure of the product can be described as a strand over another strand. The overall thickness of the product will essentially be twice the thickness of each strand, although there may be some melding of the strands at the joint. Normally, the strands in each direction are produced uniformly, and the product looks the same from one side of the material as the other. This type of netting is marketed as “bi-planar”, as both sides are structurally the same, the strands forming a plane or channel along the net. Read more ›

The same is true for the extrusion process.
The extrusion process is a continuous process, which involves Read more ›
