NBC V-Screen Hybrid Super Fiber Mesh
Application INDUSTRIAL

V-Screen is a high performance mesh woven with VECRY, an innovative hybrid super fiber, and designed for high end applications requiring extreme resolution and superior dimensional accuracy. It is ideal for use in the production of solar cells, touch panels, capacitors (MLCC & LTCC), printed circuit boards, and other high-end industrial applications.

VECRY is a thermotropic liquid crystal polymer derived originally from VECTRAN materials used for the landing systems on NASA Mars missions, and most recently utilized on next generation semi-rigid airships. It combines a solid VECTRAN core with a sheath composed of VECTRAN fibers surrounded by a PEN polymer in an “island-in-a-sea” construction. This gives V-Screen a distinct performance advantage over stainless steel mesh.

Features
  • Superior dimensional accuracy as a result of 2x the tensile strength of standard stainless steel wire
  • Super high resolution as a result of the ultra smooth thread surface provided by VECRY
  • A more durable stencil because of extreme light transparency
