SEFAR PME

The best performing screen printing mesh SEFAR PME has been specially developed and engineered by Sefar for the needs of high-end industrial screen printing.

Mesh Features

SEFAR PME is the best performing range of screen printing mesh for printers who need to expand the capabilities of their screen printing process. The mesh is made from an innovative, high modulus, high tensile strength yarn developed and manufactured by Sefar. This screen printing mesh solution offers stencil makers and printers maximum precision in extremely tight tolerances.
SEFAR PME enables the efficient and reliable production of stencils that allow for printing of the most demanding, high volume products – meeting the highest quality demands.
