    Ultimate Screen Material

    Screen Recomendations

    I've been doing research on the ultimate screen material. I want it to have all the best characteristics, so if you have some ideas as to what the material should do, or what it should have, let's hear it.

    Well I learned today that Plexiglas besides being too slick will split your thumb wide open if you run it down the edge. :cry:

    I was cleaning the edge off and zow!

    Otherwise I think the best screen would be rigid not floppy stuff.

    Anyone used an acrylic scouring pad that you used for scrubbing pots.
    Glue it to your surface plate.....

    That's a very good idea. Super grip. Disadvantage would be that it would not flow to the other side (unless the backing were drilled), and also that it would not be flexible (unless the backing were flexible). But I bet you'd never "over-clean" it. I wonder if the little threads would come apart. I'll see if I can find that material somewhere.

    Santamonica, I'm trying to find a couple of products I've used in aquaculture units and they would just need chopping up.
    Have you asked Aquatic Eco about your requirements as I was going to send them a request the other day.

    That green pot scrubber material will only last a while like the plastic canvas as I used it in the abalone farm I managed.
    We used something else but I can;t remember where we got it. Place is closed now and the guy is not open to visits....

    Let us know how you get on as I'm working on some different lights at the moment.
    Have to find a camera....

    I have not asked AE... I gave up on the aquatic place and started looking elsewhere. I think I have something.
