Discover KnitMesh Technologies’ Scouring Pads

KnitMesh Technologies’ Scouring Pads have revolutionised the world of industrial and domestic cleaning. These innovative pads, produced using a specialised wire and a proprietary process, offer unparalleled cleaning performance and durability in a plethora of applications.

One of the standout products in KnitMesh Technologies’ Scouring Pad range is the Steel Scouring Pad. Manufactured using high-tensile carbon steel wire, these pads are coated with a high-specification galvanised zinc coating, resulting in a superior and longer-lasting scouring experience. With enhanced abrasion and rust resistance, these pads outperform their standard steel counterparts, allowing users to tackle even the toughest cleaning tasks with ease.

For applications that require a delicate touch, KnitMesh Technologies offers their industry-leading Copper Scouring Pads. These pads utilise the power of copper to deliver a gentler scouring action. This makes them ideal for cleaning tasks that involve sensitive coatings or tight-tolerance injection moulding. With these copper pads, users can achieve thorough cleaning results without compromising the integrity of delicate surfaces.

What sets KnitMesh Technologies’ Scouring Pads apart is the meticulous attention to detail in their manufacturing process. Every pad is crafted using a proprietary technique, ensuring a highly effective scouring profile. This attention to detail translates into unrivalled cleaning performance and longevity, making these pads a go-to solution for industrial and domestic applications alike.



Scouring Pads are commonly used as pot scourers in the catering and foodservice industry. They are effective in removing tough stains and burnt food residues from pots, pans, and dishes.

Plastics Moulding


These Scouring Pads are also used for rapid surface preparation in the plastics moulding industry. They help with the cleaning and preparation of moulds before the moulding process, ensuring smooth and precise manufacturing.



Technicians in the automotive industry often use Scouring Pads for various applications. They can be used to remove rust, dirt, and grime from car parts, as well as preparing surfaces for painting or refinishing.



Scouring Pads find application in the plumbing trade for cleaning and surface preparation tasks. Plumbers commonly use them to remove scale build-up, rust, and other contaminants from pipes and fittings before installation or repair work.



In the electrical trade, these Scouring Pads are useful for cleaning and preparing electrical connectors, switchgear, and other components. They help to ensure good electrical connectivity by removing oxidation, dirt, and corrosion from contact surfaces.

How KnitMesh Technologies’ Steel Scouring Pads Outperform Competitors

In a recent experiment, KnitMesh Technologies’ Steel Scouring Pad underwent a rigorous trial alongside a leading competitor’s pad. The objective was to determine the corrosion resistance capabilities of both pads when subjected to seven days of immersion in tap water, followed by natural evaporation.

Placed in separate identical bowls of tap water, the two Scouring Pads endured the same environmental conditions during the experiment. After seven days, when the water had completely evaporated, the stark contrast between the two pads became evident.



Remarkably, the KnitMesh Technologies’ Scouring Pad shows only small spots of rust, indicating its exceptional resistance to corrosion. On the other hand, the competitor’s equivalent is completely rusted, highlighting its susceptibility to corrosion and potential degradation. This could result in the contamination of finished products, especially cooking utensils and foodstuff that come into contact with the pad during use.

The results of this experiment clearly demonstrate why KnitMesh Technologies’ Steel Scouring Pad is the preferred choice for those seeking a durable and reliable cleaning solution. With its excellent resistance to corrosion, it not only ensures the longevity of the pad but also guarantees the safety and quality of the products used in conjunction with it.


Why Knitted Wire Mesh is the Best Choice for Industrial Cleaning

Industrial cleaning is one of the most challenging tasks, especially when it involves removing residues, scraps, or fluids from machinery. Traditionally, people have used brushes, sponges, or cloths for this purpose. However, limited performance and durability of these products make them ineffective for industrial cleaning.

Knitted wire mesh is a versatile material that can serve a multitude of industrial cleaning applications. This robust and flexible material can withstand harsh chemicals (acids, alkalis, solvents), high temperatures, and abrasive conditions, making it an ideal choice for various industrial cleaning tasks.

The unique structure of knitted wire mesh imparts outstanding mechanical properties to this material. Its interlocking loop design provides effective scrubbing and wiping action that can remove even the toughest residues from machinery surfaces. In addition, the flexibility of this material allows it to conform to any shape, making it suitable for cleaning complex areas and crevices.

One of the most significant benefits of knitted wire mesh is its sustainability. Unlike single-use cleaning tools, knitted wire mesh can be reused multiple times, making it an eco-friendly cleaning solution. It also reduces the need for harmful chemicals, which means fewer pollutants entering the environment.
