Saati’s New Screen Mesh for Water-Based Inks

Saatilene Hi-Dro screen mesh from Saati is woven from high-modulus, low-elongation monofilament polyester threads and features a proprietary surface treatment developed for garment-printing applications using water-based inks. The mesh was engineered to use thinner thread diameters than standard comparable mesh counts, allowing for better ink flow due to the increased percentage of open area.

Saatilene Hi-Dro screen mesh from Saati is woven from high-modulus, low-elongation monofilament polyester threads and features a proprietary surface treatment developed for garment-printing applications using water-based inks. The mesh was engineered to use thinner thread diameters than standard comparable mesh counts, allowing for better ink flow due to the increased percentage of open area. Other advantages reported by Saati include better results with fine details and halftones, less mesh interference, faster print speeds especially with white underbases, and reduced risk of the ink drying in the screen. The mesh is said to have excellent antistatic properties and the corona treatment used to change the mesh surface is said to be long-lasting.
