NBC Mesh Inspection Tag

Visual Mesh Inspection

Every roll of NBC polyester mesh is supplied with an inspection tag. While flaws are kept to a minimum by careful quality control, any flaw found under our thorough inspection is clearly marked to prevent it being stretched into your image area.

Thickness and mesh count are precisely controlled and documented on the tag—critical information for setting your production standards. As a result, you’ll be able to keep your presses running and save time spent troubleshooting. In addition, NBC compensates for flaws by adding one half yard of mesh to the end of the roll free of charge for each flaw.1



  1. Any marked flaws within an 18″ space are considered to be one flaw and compensated with a ½ yard of material. Each flaw is clearly marked on the selvage edge with a red triangle on a blue pressure sensitive label.[return]

Definition of Tension Classes
Standard Tension
Good for all printers using mechanical stretching devices or simpler printing machines that don’t include advanced controls that high tension screens would require.
Advanced Tension
Requires stable frames, an experienced technician, and a high quality stretching device. Operators will need to use minimum off-contact distance during printing.
Expert Tension
Suitable only for expert screen makers and machine operators utilizing state-of-the-art stretching equipment. Demands great care and minimum off-contact distance during printing.
Notes
  • Recommended tension values are calculated from breaking tension measurements taken on a 100 cm x 100 cm (approx. 39.4″ x 39.4″) mechanical stretching device
