180 Yellow Screen Mesh 55 Micron Thread
180 Yellow Screen Mesh 55 Micron is a high modulus (with high elasticity) polyester monofilament mesh. 180 count is considered as a higher mesh count. 180 mesh may be stretched to the maximum newtons, up to 44n/cm2.
The percentage of open area in the higher mesh is a way to handle the high tack or heavier and high opacity inks. so when you are printing with white in or high opacity colors, use 110 mesh count. printers who do not prefer under base for the dark shirts should use 86-110 mesh and print/flash/print with a high opacity ink. though we suggest making sure that you use high count for darker shirts, plastisol ink, emulsion (solids and viscosity factors), type of fabrics pose special challenges and consideration.
when it comes to higher mesh mid to high 20 newtons tension would be enough to avoid too much off-contact gap.
