Nylon & Polyester Mesh
Component Supply's stock of nylon and polyester mesh filter screening is available in a variety of sizes that take into consideration the mesh opening, open area, mesh count (threads per inch) and thread diameter. Nylon monofilament, woven mesh material is nylon 6/6 and possesses effective abrasion and alkali resistance. The softening point is between 170°C and 230°C and the melting point is between 210°C and 250°C. Some Component Supply customers have successfully autoclaved this material; however, polyester mesh is recommended for most applications involving autoclave sterilization. Polyester mesh is also a monofilament, woven material that is corrosion and moisture resistant, durable and elastic. The softening point is between 220°C and 240°C and the melting point is between 250°C and 260°C. The fibers, woven to tight tolerances, create a uniform pore size, exceptional strength and dimensional stability. Polyester mesh is generally preferred over nylon mesh for most applications involving autoclave sterilization.
Applications for polyester and nylon mesh filter screening occur in the following industries:
Stock and Customization
Component Supply offers nylon mesh with opening sizes ranging from 7 microns to 1920 microns and polyester mesh with opening sizes ranging from 13 to 810 microns. While we stock large volumes of nylon and polyester mesh and sell it by the linear yard, we also prove our commitment to the work of our researchers and product designers by offering both materials in small quantities and in custom disc sizes and custom cuts of basic shapes. Widths for the lineal yard range from a minimum of 40 inches up to 60 inches depending on mesh size and stock.
Permeable cloth products (except black coated) currently supplied by Component Supply are manufactured from 100% Dacron polyester and/or 100% nylon and have not been treated with chemicals that would be harmful to humans by food contact. Permeable cloth products undergo purely mechanical operations with material compounds that meet Code of Federal Regulations 21CFR177.1590 (a) to stiffen the material. Lubricants used on the manufacturing machinery meet FDA REG 21CFR178.3570, with the exception of the discs. This mesh also is USP Class VI certified.
