Microshield 1500

This revolutionary on-contact hydrophobic coating has a unique chemistry. Upon contact, it forms a self-assembling monolayer that is highly hydrophobic and oleophobic. It is self-applied to solder paste stencils and offers many of the printing and cleaning benefits of NanoSlic.

Unlike traditional treatments, this coating does not need to be rinsed off and completely dried before application. As a result, rework and cycle times are greatly reduced.

The stencil coating comes in an easy-to-use bottle, giving users the freedom to dispense exactly the amount of coating needed, directly onto the applicator – without wasting a single drop. This means users have full control of its application, making MicroShield the perfect cost-effective coating for prototyping and small production runs.

Features

  • Better underside cleaning
  • Improves bridging
  • STD DEV lowered
  • Easy application

Watch Microshield in Action

The stencil industry, like the rest of the electronics industry continues to face miniaturization and the need to reduce cost. Stencil coatings can help manufacturers meet the challenge.

Traditional stencil treatments are notorious for having long application processes. After application, stencils are typically washed with distilled water to ensure surfaces are water break free. Increased cycle time leads to a reduced productivity and higher cost.

Stencil wipes, although convenient, carry an excess of product that ends up getting thrown away, or left sitting at the bottom of the container. This creates a waste of product material leading to increased costs, while ultimately leaving users without any ability to regulate usage.

Experienced engineers understand stencil production. Processes are not one-size-fits-all, so why are all the treatments the same?

Watch the application

Remove any surface contamination.

Apply 7ml of the MicroShield Cleaner / Primer in a circular motion.*

*Note: users do not need to run stencils underwater or use an air gun to dry.

Next, apply 7ml of the MicroShield coating on a lint-free cloth. Coat in circular and vigorous patterns until the cloth is dry.

Finally, let it cure for 2 minutes. Then buff with another dry lint-free cloth for 90 seconds. An electric palm buffer can help aid with this process.

The stencil industry is currently facing a dilemma between electronics miniaturization and cost production. Not only is there a need to make things faster and smaller, but also an increasing need to make it affordable.

Traditional stencil treatments are notorious for having longer application processes. After application, stencils are typically run through distilled water to ensure surfaces are water break free. This can add an incredible amount of cycle time and increased yield, leading to a decrease in productivity.

Stencil wipes, although convenient, carry an excess of product that ends up getting thrown away, or left sitting at the bottom of the container. This creates a waste of product material leading to increased costs, while ultimately leaving users without any ability to regulate its usage.
