Murakami 23″x31” 225/40 S Mesh Yellow Aluminum PreStretched Screens (8 Pack)

Murakami

Key Advantages using Murakami S Mesh:

  • Prints PVC/Phthalate well. These new inks require a more open mesh to transfer ink well and not dry in. Extended flood times are possible with S mesh which cleans and re-wets well with a few prints.
  • Better base plates – Less squeegee pressure preserves halftones and minimizes dot gain.
  • Faster squeegee speeds – Newer PVC/Phthalate free inks shear better at high squeegee speeds. Plastisol base plate squeegee speeds can print faster as well.
  • More opacity – Opacity is improved by printing the ink so it lays on the surface of the shirt with less squeegee pressure, not driven into the fabric.
  • Softer hand to the print – When ink rests on the surface of the fabric it is more flexible.
  • Less Ink Usage – 23-30% less ink used. This cost savings is one of the best ways to save money on your production floor. Ink is your biggest consummable product.
  • Less Emulsion Usage – S Mesh has a thinner fabric thickness and uses less emulsion to achieve good EOM, or emulsion over mesh.
  • More opaque halftone base plates – Murakami S mesh is capable of halftone counts that are impossible on standard mesh and especially thick HD mesh.
  • Fast set ups with a mesh that holds registration and retains good working tensions far longer than inexpensive mesh.
  • Superior Prints – Sharp, consistent registration, soft hand feel, better halftone control, all add up to the best prints ever to come off your press.

Technical Specifications

Today’s screen printing world is in the midst of major change. PVC and Pthalate free inks are being used more and more, but they print far differently than any ink you have used in the past. Plastisol will still have its’ place, but many major clothing merchandisers want a safer ink for their product. This isn’t going to be like switching from one brand of plastisol to another. These inks require rethinking your print recipe of mesh and emulsion. From major athletic and licensed wear manufacturers to new children’s wear requirements these inks are here to stay. Migrating from plastisol to these new style of inks will require a dedication to learning how these inks cure, how to mix and maintain the inks during production and documenting the print recipe to determine best practices for success.
We’ve made the print part easy. We have been promoting S mesh for some time now with great results. The new PVC and Phthalate free inks benefit from the increased open area of Murakami S-mesh. With these meshes you can use less squeegee pressure and faster squeegee speeds to lay down less ink while still yielding great opaque prints. Faster squeegee speeds help these new inks to shear better. This low viscosity ink eliminates the need for a slow printing base plate common with plastisol inks and yields an extremely soft hand feel to the print. S Mesh from  Murakami has one other significant advantage; print registration. Murakami’s S Mesh holds registration well. It has properties that aid in keeping your prints on press looking as good as when they were set up at the beginning of the print run.
Murakami Smartmesh retains excellent working tension.  Mesh tension is often misunderstood. High mesh tension is not needed for water base, discharge or PVC/Pthalate free inks. These inks shear very easily with a good workable tension of 17-25 newtons. Whether you use stretch and glue or retensionable frames Murakami S mesh retains tension well. 135 Murakami S Mesh with Aquasol HV Emulsion. How is  urakami Mesh different? Murakami Smartmesh thread is made very differently than inexpensive mesh. Lower quality mesh continues to lose tension over the life of the screen and quite often this will happen in the first production run and continue to lose tension until it can’t register well. Murakami Smartmesh will retain a good workable tension level due to a higher quality thread which extends the useful life of the screen. The old saying goes: “You can pay me now or pay  me later”. Non stop print production with flawless registration will make you more money in the long run.
