Component Supply's stock of polyester filter screening is available by the linear 1/4-yard (~18"x20"), 1/2-yard (~18"x40"), or full yard (~36"x40"), though widths of the full yard maybe be slightly more or less than 40". Polyester mesh comes in a variety of sizes specificed by mesh opening size (µ)and is suitable for applications in several industries. This monofilament, woven mesh possesses excellent qualities such as corrosion and moisture resistance, durability and elasticity. The fibers, woven to tight tolerances, create a uniform pore size, exceptional strength and dimensional stability. Polyester mesh is generally preferred over nylon mesh for most applications involving autoclave sterilization.
Markets & Applications ▼
Applications for polyester mesh filter screening occur in the following industries: mining, agriculture, aquaculture, medical and laboratory. Polyester screening is particularly effective in applications dealing with water filtration including waste water treatment, domestic water filtration and aquaculture. Specific to the aquaculture industry, polyester mesh products have use in growing, feeding, separation and trapping applications in fish farms, sea farms, fish hatcheries, catfish farms, shrimp farms, oyster farms, clam farms and others. Other filtration and separation applications occur in the field of entomology, where researchers use this particular mesh to keep insects contained during studies.

Component Supply stocks polyester mesh with opening sizes ranging from 18 to 1950 microns. While we stock large volumes of this product and sell it by the linear yard, we also prove our commitment to the work of our researchers and product designers by offering this mesh in small quantities and in custom disc sizes and custom cuts of basic shapes. Widths for the lineal yard range from a minimum of 40 inches up to 60 inches depending on mesh size and stock. For more information about current available widths and for quantities larger than 10 yards, call or email us for pricing. We strive to bring application-specific functionality to various industries by customizing our products without committing all customers to large quantities.
