Cleaning after Stencil Printing Adhesive | 24 August, 2000

Hi Guys, Wonder what and how other companies clean their squeegees and stencils after stencil printing adhesives. Can anyone give me a clear skies about the above process? We do not have any special cleaner at the moment.

all ideas are welcome...

thanks and regards,

Hi George,

this seems to be one of the typical questions where a first check with the archives would give you sufficient information. Also check with your supplier.

Good luck Wolfgang

George,

We print adhesive on a regular basis. We use LOCTITE 7360 SMT adhesive cleaner. We also purchased a handheld ultrasonic stencil cleaner that works very well. It is very important to keep the glue from curing in the apetures as this will most certainly prohibit enough adhesive from being applied the next time you use it. The stencil cleaner was a little expensive but it has paid for itself in better placements and less rework.

Good Luck.
