Titanium mesh


I am looking for grade 1 or 2 cp titanium mesh.
It appears that there are no reliable US suppliers in small quantities.
So i am looking for any suppliers with lead times of less than a week.
Amazon has several suppliers selling stainless steel as titanium.
The rest are coming from china and they just shutdown a major shipping hub.
I was able to get a sheet of titanium supposedly gr2 but am looking for mesh
Without having to punch holes in it myself.

Any us based sources with reasonable prices (comparable to sheet) and short lead times would be appreciated.

Do you specifically need titanium mesh? Platinized titanium mesh is much easier to find as a gold plating electrode. A sizeable piece costs about $30. I bought mines from amazon.



There wasn't a fire, we just had an uncontrolled rapid oxidation event at the power plant.

Trifflic Acid,
I am specifically looking for titanium mesh.
I have considered getting 'platinized' mesh and decoating it but that would be a bit of a waste.
Although not much of one given how little platinum there is on most of those sold on amazon.

Another idea would be to get one of the platinum electrodes with bad reviews. There is definitely no platinum in those :P

No titanium either.
Hell, half the titanium doesn't contain titanium.

The main problem with the pre-made titanium electrodes is they are pretty small.
My MMO electrodes are 7" x 10".

I am looking to make some new lead dioxide electrodes.
The carbon ones I have don't last long enough.
And solid lead also flakes.

I just bought sheet titanium and cut it with an angle grinder, but that produced strips, not the mesh that you need. Honestly, I don't know how you could find it. Maybe look into some nearby universities?

I'm not sure if titanium screen fits the bill, but here is a link:

WGTR,
Those would be the outrageous prices I was talking about.
$55 for a 5 x 5 cm square.
I would be better off buying the ripoff platinum electrodes.
