  • Do not touch or contaminate surface prior to testing. Contaminated surfaces will not give accurate results.
  • Discard contaminated test pens.
  • Use a “Fresh” test pen. NanoClear® Test pens are good for 6 months from production.
  • Never re-test the same location. Move along the sample or test a new area.
  • Store Aculon® NanoClear® Test Pens at room temperature.

Aculon® NanoClear® Surface

If the third ink swath beads up, tears apart, or shrinks into a thin line then this surface has the Aculon® NanoClear® fluxophobic coating on the surface.

Untreated Surface

If the third ink swath remains wetted out (a solid line appears) on the test sample for three seconds or more then this surface does not have the Aculon® NanoClear® fluxophobic coating on the surface. Apply NanoClear® Fluxophobic stencil treatment
