While welded wire mesh is more commonly used for concrete reinforcement, woven wire cloth mesh is used to reinforce various other materials in a similar fashion. Wire cloth is often used to reinforce the structure and support of medical implants. Titanium wire cloth is often used in these medical applications, as well as stainless steel for procedures such as hip replacements.
