For nylon and polyester printing mesh, as they are all monofilament woven type. Visually it is hard to distinguish. MAISHI WIRE MESH MANUFACTURE GROUP has been in printing mesh industry for many years, and we have rich experience. So here we will talk about how to distinguish nylon and polyester printing mesh.
Distinguish from the hand felling, polyester often has more of a fiber-like feeling, whereas nylon can seem almost more silk-like. So you will feel that nylon mesh is more softer.
If you put your hand under the mesh, you will find that for the same mesh count, nylon printing mesh has better transparency than polyester printing mesh.
And you can distinguish the mesh by burning them. When burning, there will be no smoke or white smoke for nylon mesh, and During burning, you can not see the flame. Nylon mesh is hard to keep burning when it left the fire. After burning, the nylon mesh combustion residue is not easy to be crushed. While for polyester printing mesh, it will have black smoke during burning. The flame is yellow color, and the combustion residue is black and easily to be crushed.
Another method to distinguish is by microscope. When seeing the mesh wire under the microscope, nylon wire is more transparent, while polyester wire is white.
