The finished edge of a loom that prevents cloth unraveling.
This process divides or separates a mixture of particles or liquids into separate components.
Shielding effectiveness (SE)
Measure of a given material’s ability to block interference. Expressed in dB. See Decibel.
A screen with apertures of uniform size used for sizing granular materials.
Method of adding color to the polymer melt or spinning solution before the fiber is extruded. Also known as spun dyeing or dope dyeing.
The process of extruding polymers to form fibers
A yarn produced from short fibers
See Plain Weave
The squeegee fills the mesh openings with ink and is pressing the stencil onto the substrate.
The edge of the squeegee blade, the squeegee pressure, the angle as well as the material and hardness have an important influence on the printing result.
Angle from the screen, in which the squeegee is fixed. The common angle is 75°.
The squeege is pressing the stencil onto the substrate. The pressure should be as low as possible.
The side of the mesh resp. stencil directed toward the squeegee.
The step exposure is a methode of determining the optimum exposure time. It depends on the characteristics of the photo emulsion, the mesh, the overall thickness, the light source and the distance between the lamp and the screen.
Stretching systems are used for stretching the screen printing mesh before glueing it onto a frame.
We distinguish between:
- mechanical stretching systems
- pneumatic stretching systems
