Engineered Products Overview| Phifer Inc.
Hello, I'm Greg Rhoden, National Market Manager for Phifer's Engineered Products Division. Phifer Incorporated was founded as Phifer Wire Products in 1952 as a weaver of aluminum mesh for insect screening. Today, in addition to weaving aluminum mesh, we also draw and weave steel, bronze, and stainless steel wire, and we also coat and weave fiberglass and polyester meshes. Phifer's Engineered Products encompasses all of the base raw materials that we use in our manufacturing processes. Our product group focuses on the performance requirements of the application, such as strength, chemical resistance, flame-retardant properties, elongation, and other physical aspects of the mesh.
As I mentioned earlier, woven aluminum mesh is Phifer's original product. Aluminum offers excellent strength to weight ratios, conductivity, corrosion-resistance, and ductility, and aluminum mesh is recyclable. Our aluminum mesh is commonly used in applications such as filtration, telecommunications, electrical conduction, ventilation, and other applications. I invite you to check out our capabilities chart located in our Resources section of this site to see mesh count and wire diameter combinations that are available.
We also offer a variety of coatings and finishes for our aluminum meshes: natural or untreated, cleaned only, where we remove the oils and other lubricants used in the drawing and weaving processes, liquid solvent coatings, acrylic based electrodeposition coatings, or E-coat, and epoxy or polyester based powder coatings. Low carbon steel mesh offers enhanced strength for applications where higher strength requirements are presented. As a ferrous metal, our low carbon steel mesh must be coated to prevent oxidation, and is primarily used in filtration applications.
Phifer offers custom precision slitting, annealing, or heat treating, and packaging of all of our woven metal engineered products to meet your specific needs, and we invite you to browse our website to learn more about these capabilities.
Phifer's textile engineered products include woven vinyl-coated fiberglass and vinyl-coated polyester meshes, as well as vinyl-coated yarns. Vinyl-coated fiberglass offers a high strength to weight ratio and low elongation. Vinyl coatings can be custom designed for color, UV stability, and chemical and flame resistance. Because of their relative high strength and low weight, Phifer's fiberglass meshes are an excellent choice for use as reinforcing substrates, filtration meshes, ventilation meshes, strainers, and many other applications. We offer a wide range of mesh counts and yarn diameters to meet a multitude of strength, mesh openness, and mesh weight requirements.
We also provide custom precision slitting and packaging to suit your needs. Our vinyl-coated polyester meshes are woven from high tenacity polyester yarn that is coated with PVC. The polyester yarn offers high strength, and its elasticity makes it an excellent choice in applications where enhanced flexibility is required. As with our fiberglass mesh products, vinyl coatings are available to provide color, UV stability, and flame resistance requirements.
