Pre Stretched Screens


Three Options to chose from: Pre-Stretched, Pre-Coated and Imaged Screens

Pre Stretched: Precision stretched to optimum tensions. Wide variety of mesh from 15T to 460S. Optimally stretched for each mesh count.  High retained tensions for longer life.Square orientation of threads to frame, or the mesh can be stretched on the bias at 22.5 degrees. Mesh Guide

Pre Coated Screens: Screens can be ordered pre-coated for optimum Emulsion Over Mesh percentage.  Available only with a pure SBQ emulsion for long storage life.  Choose from our line of SBQ emulsions for Graphics, Electronics, or Textile. Ships in light safe packaging.

Imaged Screens: We also offer imaging of your stretched and coated screen. Imaged screens require a technical review of your project so that we can advise on mesh counts, emulsion type, inks to be used, and other parameters that may be necessary to complete the job correctly.

Murakami Mesh Guide: Any of the meshes shown in the mesh guide can be stretched onto our stock frames or we can make custom size frames that are designed to stay flat and hold tensions.

  • Smartmesh retains tension well and holds superior registration during the print run.
  • Smartmesh maintains mesh opening shape and thread location to avoid spot moire and improve print quality.
  • Smartmesh threads resist AEP or Accumulated Elongation Percentage. The repeated force of the squeegee motion causes competitor’s mesh to elongate and lose register.  Smartmesh has memory and returns image elements to their original registration point and resists AEP elongation.
