B Using mesh as a waterproof material

    How small would screen mesh have to be so that it would be consider waterproof? (ex: screen mesh small enough so that it would not break the surface tension of the water)

    I suggest you would also have to consider the pressure of the water against the mesh

    so tell us more about what you are trying to achieve :smile:
