Component Supply offers nylon mesh filtration screening by the linear yard in mesh opening sizes ranging from 7 microns to 1920 microns. Widths for the linear yard range from a minimum of 36" up to 60" depending on mesh size and stock. In addition to mesh opening, the following characteristics are provided in the chart below: open area, mesh count (threads per inch), and thread diameter. This monofilament, woven mesh material is nylon 6/6 and possesses effective abrasion and alkali resistance.
- Softening point: between 170°C and 230°C (338°F and 446°F)
- Melting point: between 210°C and 250°C (410°F and 482°F)
Some Component Supply customers have successfully autoclaved this material; however, polyester mesh is recommended for most applications involving autoclave sterilization.
