Features of wet filters

Superior Chemical Resistance

Saran™ is resistant to acids and alkalis, and is insoluble in oils and most organic solvents, making it suitable for use in applications involving exposure to chemicals. (Note that it is soluble in some solvents such as tetrahydrofuran and cyclohexanone.)

Because Saran™ will not absorb water

Because Saran™ will not absorb water, it retains its strength under various humidity conditions. The lack of water absorption also makes it easy to remove the cake.

Excellent Flame Resisting

Saran™ fiber is inherently self-extinguishing, making the addition of flame-retardants unnecessary. This means consistent, uniform flame-retardant properties, free from variations which occur during flame-retardant compounding. Saran™ fiber plays an important role in applications requiring high flame-retardant properties.

RoHS(Restriction of Hazardous Substances)

Six compounds (Pb , Hg ,Cd, CrⅥ, PBBs, PBDEs) listed in RoHS are not contained in wet filters.

Opening Calculated from mesh number and fiber diameter beforeweaving.

<Formula>
Opening (mm) =25.4/ Mesh number - Fiber diamete
Burst strength :A 15cm angular specimen is sampled, and a Mullen bursting strength tester is employed. Pressure is applied via a rubber diaphragm, and the strength at which the rubber diaphragm breaks through the specimen ”A”(kPa), and the strength to rupture the rubber diaphragm alone ”B” (kPa) are measured, and the bursting strength (kPa) is calculated by the following formula.
  <Formula>
Bursting strength =A - B
Tear strength :Record the maximum load at the time of tear when a notch of 10cm is formed in the specimen.
Tensile strength Test width 3cm
Tensile speed 10cm/min
Grip gap 10cm
Tester : Constant speed elongation type
Thickness :The thickness when a pressure of 23.5kPa is applied
Water Permeability :Shows the quantity of water permeating through the cloth in 1 sec in a water column of 10 cm. Water-permeation area:1cm², water permeation duration:60 sec
Air Permeability :A pressure of 125Pa is applied to the cloth, and the amount of air flowing is measured.
Shrinkage :The shrinkage after immersion in boiling water for 30 minutes
