Abrasive Under Stencil Wipes May Damage the Nano Coating!!

Uncoated stencils require harsh papers to effectively scrape away sticky flux, but stencils coated with NanoClear® release flux and solder paste more easily.

Because NanoClear® repels flux, use softer wiper paper and clean less frequently on coated stencils to enhance durability and to save money.

Examples of soft wiper paper include:

  • DEK ECO roll
  • Hyperclean® P4200
  • MicroCare® MicroWipe­­­®
