NBC V-Screen Next TLCP Fiber Mesh
Application INDUSTRIAL

V-Screen Next is a high performance mesh woven with next generation themotropic liquid crystal polymer (TLCP) monofilament thread 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), multilayer substrates (LTCC), printed circuit boards, and other high-end industrial applications.

TLCP monofilament thread is available as fine as 20 µm in diameter. These super fine threads create larger mesh openings, reducing mesh interference to the image and improving ink transition. By contrast, the thinest commonly available PET threads are around 27 µm in diameter.

Features
  • Superior Tensile Strength: V-Screen Next boasts tensile strength superior to standard stainless steel mesh, leading to increased dimensional accuracy and minimal tension loss and distortion.
  • Superfine Threads: Available at diameters as fine as 20 µm, V-Screen’s superfine threads create larger mesh openings, reducing mesh interference and improving ink transition.
  • Superb Light Transparency: With higher light transparency and lower light reflection than stainless steel mesh, V-Screen allows easier setup of exposure time for ultrafine screen resolutions.
