Bidirectional Oriented Polypropylene (B.O.P.) mesh
A special type of extruded mesh is BOP-mesh. After extrusion BOP-mesh is stretched on large tables in two directions (hence the term bi-directional oriented). This stretching creates a very wide mesh with a large open area and little weight which results in relatively low prices. Applications of these meshes can be found in agriculture as fencing or reinforcement of grass sods, in filtration as support mesh for non-wovens and in the furniture industry as containment/reinforcement in mattresses.
