Description of mesh opening

Mesh opening 'ω' is the spacing between adjacent warp or weft threads, and is measured perpendicular to the plane of the mesh.

Mesh opening governs:

the maximum particle size to be used in a screen printing ink

the level of printed detail in line and half-tone artwork

ink release character

the thickness of the ink volume


For optimum ink transmission the particle size p of the screen printing ink must be less than the mesh opening by at least a factor of 0.3.
