A gauzy curtain, often painted, through which lighted objects can be seen but which becomes opaque when lit from the front. By balancing lighting levels, the audience may see both what's painted on the scrim as well as a hazy image of what's behind.
A theatrical fabric woven so finely that when lit from the front it appears opaque and when lit from behind it becomes transparent. A scrim is often used for surprise effects or to create a mysterious mood.
A woven, non-woven, or knitted fabric, composed of continuous strands of material used for reinforcing or strengthening felts or membranes. Scrim may be incorporated into the membrane by laminating, coating or extruding.
1. A lightweight, open weave, course fabric. 2. Fabric with open construction used as base fabric in the production of coated or laminated fabrics. Seamless A term that describes a tubular knit, or woven fabric without seams, e.g., seamless hosiery, or seamless woven tube.
A very loosely woven fabric onto which felt is needled to add dimensional stability and strength. Use of scrims is declining as high performance textile equipment is allowing for creation of 100% fiber media with the same or superior strength characteristics. Self-supported A nonwoven fabric that has been processed to interlock the fibers such that a scrim is not required. Self-supported filter materials have established themselves as the most popular choice for low temperature applications. However, high temperature applications of self supported fabrics, especially in long bag configurations, should be approached with caution and on a case by case basis
An open-mesh, plain weave coarse cloth made either from jute, hemp, cotton or flax. Used in embroidery, for gluing to the inside of wooden panelling to prevent shrinkage, to reinforce plaster when casting models, for curtaining and in theatrical scenery where a transparent area is required.
(1) A thin reinforcing mat usually nonwoven and normally made of glass or polyester fiber; (2) A woven, non-woven or knitted fabric, composed of continuous strands of material used for reinforcing or strengthening membranes. Scrim may be incorporated into a membrane by the laminating or coating process.
nbspPolyester fabric embedded between two layers of vinyl. Scrim designed for use with pressure-sensitive films uses a top coat or an overlaminate film to prevent plasticizer migration and to protect the scrim from dirt and pollution. Scrim mounted on a fram
A scrim or gauze is a very light textile made from cotton, or sometimes flax. Its light weight and translucence means it is often used for making curtains. The fabric can also be used for bookbinding and upholstery.
Wiping canvas - used for inking and wiping a printmaking plate Secondary Colours: Colours created by mixing two primary colours: e.g. orange, green and violet. Shade: Colour mixed with black. Soft Ground Acid-resistant coating used in printmaking to create a ground so textures can be impressed into the plate.
A key component of the Duro-Last roofing system. The scrim is weft inserted creating a grid-like appearance. If the Duro-Last membrane is ever punctured the scrim tightens up preventing the tear from gaining in size.
A base fabric component created by laying out fibers in a grid pattern with the fibers joined at their intersection. A scrim can be constructed by passing fill and warp yarns over and under one another; by knitting, in which the fibers and "tied" at each intersection; or by laying the fibers straight across one another and connecting them at the intersections with glue.
A scrim is a device used in lighting for films. It is a small screen that is slot loaded into a light can to lower its intensity. It modifies the light using the same principles as polarizing sunglasses.
