S-Mesh Versus T-Mesh

In high-end screen printing, we now use more often the S-Mesh instead of the T-Mesh.
As it has better coverage and most printers use it for the underbase.
But not only for the underbase, as specially for water base ink, but it also shears easier with less pressure.
The result is not only better opacity, but a softer hand too.

Here i did a small video, to explain the difference.

Watch this video on YouTube.

Why Professional Screen Printer uses an S-Mesh:
1) Better Opacity
2) Less Ink Usage
3) Less Emulsion Consumption
4) Soft hand
5) Less Squeegee Pressure

Be aware, as the S-Mesh is much finer than the T-Mesh, it is more delicate to work with.
