What kind of frames are there?
Cast Aluminum Frames
Cast aluminum frames are die cast metal frames designed for screen printing. Their main advantage over wooden frames are their durability and strength. They can be reused countless times without sacrificing adhesion or dimensional accuracy.
Welded Aluminum Frames
Welded aluminum frames differ from cast aluminum frames in that rather than being die cast as one solid frame, they are generally constructed from aluminum tubing and welded together at the corners.
Retensionable frames are, as the name suggests, specially engineered frames that allow the mesh to be applied to the screen without the use of adhesives, and oftentimes, complicated stretching equipment. Generally, the mesh is tensioned via either a roller or telescopic method.
