Skyhall Fence specializes in producing high-purity woven nickel mesh for the water electrolysis hydrogen industry. The nickel wires we use are produced under high purification processes like crystallization, and solid-state to ensure a satisfying purity of Ni>99.9%.
As a kind of green energy, hydrogen has been increasingly applied. How to produce pure hydrogen with minimum pollution to the environment becomes the main focus of the world to pursue sustainable development. Water electrolysis hydrogen is just the silver bullet we are looking for.
It’s a process of using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. The cathode and anode of alkaline electrolysis water are mainly composed of metal alloys, using nickel mesh as the diaphragm. Water will be electrolyzed into hydrogen and oxygen under the action of direct current. And the generated gas needs further dealkalization to get purer.
Corrosion-resistant nickel mesh takes the place of noble metals as the electrode, enabling us to get hydrogen in an economical way.

Economical for Hydrogen Production
As we mentioned above, the electrolysis of water is the most environmentally friendly and sustainable method for green energy production of high-purity hydrogen. But the shortcoming of this method lies in the high cost of using noble metals as electrodes. Being abundant and economical, nickel mesh resolved the problem perfectly as an alternative.
A rough coating with a porous structure will be attached to the surface of the nickel mesh by plasma spraying technology. This special treatment will greatly increase the contact area between the nickel mesh and liquid in the electrolytic cell to produce hydrogen effectively.
High Corrosion Resistance
Nickel mesh has excellent corrosion resistance to concentrated alkali solutions and fatty acids. That makes it resistant to alkaline salts like nitrate, chloride, and acetate and remains stable under the acid atmosphere. Due to the feature, woven nickel mesh is widely used in the alkali industry, organic chloride production, food processing, and water treatment.
Nickel wire mesh is magnetic compared with other common metal materials. With the advantage of good performance in the electric vacuum and electromagnetic control, nickel mesh is widely used in aerospace, the production of vacuum electrical parts, and electronic instruments.
High Temperature Resistance
The melting point of woven nickel mesh can be high as 1453°C, thus not easy to be affected under high temperature environment. Thanks to this performance, nickel mesh is commonly used in the oil refining industry, chemical industry, metallurgical industry, and high temperature halogen.
