A carbon based material which is built up from a series of smaller units (monomers). The choice of the monomers and the final molecular weight (i.e. size) of the polymer govern the mechanical and physical properties of the resultant polymer.
Mesh is available as either a woven wire or electroformed product; in all cases, the quoted aperture sizes are nominal.
Wire mesh: a material which is woven from metal wires to provide a thin grid with a regular series of holes.
Electroformed mesh: a product made by electroplating the mesh geometry through a mask onto a substrate which is subsequently etched away.
