Component Supply offers polyester filter screening in mesh opening sizes ranging from 18-1950 microns. Widths for the linear yard range from a minimum of 36" up to 60" depending on mesh size and stock. Mesh size is defined primarily by the mesh opening specifications, but other characteristics are provided including opening, open area, mesh count (threads per inch), and thread diameter. This monofilament, woven mesh possesses excellent qualities such as corrosion and moisture resistance, durability and elasticity. 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.
