The stencil industry is being demanded to produce smaller electronics at a faster pace, all while continuing to be affordable. This creates a dilemma for the stencil industry that is attributed to electronic miniaturization and the demand for cost efficient production.
Conventional stencil treatments can increase cycle time and yields, resulting in an overall reduction in production. To ensure a stencil’s surface is water break free, stencils are run through distilled water which lengthens the application process.
Stencil wipes for example may seem convenient but are also an overabundance of product. This is because stencil wipes are either thrown away or left laying inside of a container. This increases waste of product materials which ultimately adds unnecessary costs.
Unmatched Improvements For Your Stencils
Better Underside Cleaning
Preventing apertures from damage and constrained transfers, allowing for an overall reduction in stencil defects.
Components are protected in the form of isolation from one another during application.
STD DEV Lowered
Conditions for printing are superior, notably with fine pitch components.
The overall rework required is reduced even for delicate components because of the superb coverage and extraordinary flexibility.
Engineers know stencil treatments are not applicable to every SMT assembly line, then why are all treatments the same?
We bring you Microshield by Blue Ring Stencil.
This coating revolutionizes the perception and efficiency of on-contact hydrophobic coatings in the stencil industry. Microshield’s unique chemistry allows it to be hand-applied to solder paste stencils and provides a wide-range of properties.
MicroShield lacks the requirement of being rinsed off and thoroughly dried upon application, therefore reduces cycle times and improves overall production yields. So, contrary to traditional treatments; MicroShield accommodates cost and usability demands.
Being an on-contact stencil coating allows users to have full control of how the coating is applied. The stencil coating’s easy-to-use bottle allows the user to allocate the exact amount of coating onto its applicator. This means users can expect to never waste a single drop during its application because users have full control of how it’s applied. This allows MicroShield to be the perfect cost-effective coating for small production lines and prototyping.
Learn How to Easily Apply
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.
