I am a bit confused on the pore size vs weave. I had an understanding that the pore size was the amount of space between filaments in the braided meshes, and not the larger spaces between each braid. This because the pore size is measured in microns, and clearly when we can see the pores in a mesh these are not microns and these are milimeters. Can someone please clarify?

Textile porosity: space between filaments. That’s the one we refer more for surgical decisions. measured in mm.
Material porosity: pores at the material. Measured in microns. All products are MACROporous, except PTFE
