Detailed introduction of polyester printing mesh
About the polyester screen printing mesh, weaving, use, how to choose the basic information of mesh number and weaving type of screen printing polyester mesh, and introduction of screen printing technology
The polyester screen used for printing is a plain weave mesh bolt cloth made of a polyester monofilament yarn. PW is an abbreviation for simple weaving and is a popular process for polyester webs. PWs are labelled on most polyester mesh product labels, and TW (twist) fabrics are sometimes found on micron or stronger fabrics. However, according to some reports, TW polyester fabrics slightly delay ink flow. Polyester screen printing screens are one of the most advanced high-tech fabric products used in screen printing since the 1990s. Petter polyester and nylon mesh products can be easily applied to all types of printers.
About screen printing:
This is a technology that is achieved through the screening and processing of polyester fabrics. Screen printing is a popular printing method for making T-shirts and other clothing. It is also widely used in textile printing, ceramic printing, glass printing, graphic printing, electronic printing, CD / DVD printing, wood printing, metal printing, and plastic products leather printing.
Screen printing features:
·Optimized mesh geometry
· Balanced, low elongation
Larger format strength
Moderate loss of tension
There are two factors that can affect the print result: one is the type of weaving on the print grid screen, and the other is the grid count.
The type of weaving on the polyester print screen affects the print result:
The most common weaving pattern in the Petter screen printing net is called "plain" and will be designated as "PW" on the label. This is a simple upper and lower weave pattern. "Twill Weave (TW)" is used to make thicker, more rugged screens and rely on complex weaving patterns, depending on the manufacturer. Twill weave mesh will be thicker than plain weave, even if the number of meshes is the same. The Screen Printing Technology Foundation compared different fabric properties and found that the twill weave was slightly less than that of the plain weave.
Universal grid count for print screens: DPP8T - DPP180T
Color: yellow and white
Fabric width: 110cm - 365cm
How to choose the mesh number of your polyester printing mesh (bolt cloth) and its effect on screen printing:
The choice of grid is usually made up of "grid counts" or lines per square inch (eg, 110, 180, and 240). The smaller the number, the larger the opening, and the ink will be pressed against your cloth; higher numbers mean more threads per inch and smaller openings, allowing less ink transfer. If the template has many details and a small or narrow portion of the grid is covered, a high grid count screen is appropriate. Larger openings can cause too much ink and can confuse the edges and details of the image.
