Plastic Square Mesh Netting
The joint structure of Plastic Square netting is produced using reciprocating dies. Machine direction strands run the length of the roll and cross direction strands run the width of the roll. Joints are formed at the intersection and are not stacked one over the other as in diamond net mesh plastic netting. Square netting results from strands being formed along the x and y plane, creating a square or rectangular hole pattern.
Generally, the machine direction strand is thicker than the cross direction strand. The overall thickness of the netting is typically determined by the machine direction strand thickness. As a result of this joint configuration, plastic square netting usually has one side of the material that is smooth, that is, both the machine and cross strands are flush on the same plane, and one side that is "bumpy", where the machine direction strand has a higher profile than the cross strands.
Square mesh plastic netting is extruded in a wide range of configurations featuring:
- Structural integrity
- Apertures "locked" by fused joints
- Smooth surface on one side
