Different mesh sizes hold different amounts of emulsion, based on how big the holes in the mesh are. For example, a 110 mesh screen will hold much more emulsion then a 305 mesh screen. While the difference isn’t extreme, you will have to vary your exposure times slightly for different mesh sizes. A finer mesh screen that holds less emulsion will expose faster then a lower mesh screen that holds more emulsion. However, the difference is minimal so you may have to only vary as slightly as five-10 percent in either direction (depending on mesh size) in order to get maximum exposure performance.
