Polyester Screen Printing Mesh
With high quality material, Resen produces super quality polyester and polyamide bolting cloth for screen printing. Resen also have the most advanced testing instruments and technicians well trained to guarantee a reliable quality.
Monofilament Polyester Screen Printing Mesh(Low-elongation) Features:
Low-Elongation Monofilament Polyester Screen printing mesh is what we are producing now in a wide range of mesh counts, and our products offer significant advantages over the traditional monofilament polyester:
Faster tensioning without damage to the threads;
Improved fabric strength;
Faster tension stabilization;
Higher tension threshold and breaking point;
Less tension loss during the stretching process;
Faster turnaround time from the screen room to the pressroom;
Improved registration due to stable tension;
Faster printing speeds.
Applications:CD/DVD Printing, Ceramic Decorating, Graphic Screen Printing, Package Printing, Printed Electronics, Printing on Glass, Solar Cell Printing, Textile Printing, etc.
Technical Details:Monofilament polyester mesh screen (low-elongation) is available with a wide range of mesh counts and has significant advantages compared with traditional polyester mesh.
Polyester mesh was introduced to the screen printing market 40 years ago and quickly replaced traditional silk as the fabric of choice among screen printers all over the world. It is a material that is uniquely suitable for screen printing because of its tensile strength, elastic memory and resistance to chemicals, abrasion heat and moisture. Polyester screen is a kind of synthetic fabric similar to silk, yet with better uniformity. Compared to silk, polyester screen cloth offers extreme durability, yet it has a lower price.
We mainly offer high quality and high precision polyester and polyamide bolting screen ranging from 60-420 mesh. This product is widely used in printing and plate-making in electronic, textile, ceramics industry, also used for melting filtration in space flight, petroleum chemical and other high-tech fields. This product is the most advanced high-tech products for silk printing in the world in nineties.
History and Characteristics of Polyester Printing Screen
Polyester was introduced to the screen printing market over 40 years ago and quickly replaced traditional silk as the fabric of choice among screen printers all over the world. It is a material that is uniquely suitable for screen printing because of its tensile strength, elastic memory and resistance to chemicals, abrasion heat and moisture.
There are 3 types of polyester fabrics used in screen printing and they are monofilament, low-elongation monofilament and multifilament. Most of today's screen printers use monofilament polyester, but the traditional type is rapidly being replaced with "Low-Elongation" fabric, which brings many new benefits to the screen printing process. Here we mainly introduce low-elongation monofilament polyester fabric as this is what we are producing now.
Monofilament Polyester is woven from yarn that is extruded from heated polyester into a single thread. The extruded thread is spun to a precise diameter. Conventional monofilament polyester screen fabric will elongate under tension: the higher the tension level, the more the thread can stretch. At excessive tension levels, the thread reaches its "plastic deformation" point, and the screen will no longer hold tension.
Monofilament polyester is still suitable for non-critical printing applications. In recent years, however, it has been eclipsed by a new development in thread technology: Low-Elongation Polyester.
