GREEN MONSTER! is ESD-safe, preventing ESD events that could damage components, cause voids in solder traces and possible explosions in the presence of
flammable solvent vapors. The mere action of re-rolling typical white paper rolls during its manufacturing process creates huge amounts of static. The GREEN MONSTER! is a drop-in, ESD-safe solution for any static-generating rolls.
GREEN MONSTER! works so well that many companies have reported that there is no need for any solvent. The surface is very aggressive and porosity is just right for ultra-efficient wiping, providing both environmental and financial benefits.
GREEN MONSTER! uses thick, coarse, multi-oriented rayon fibers. In contrast, paper fibers are small, flat, smooth, dusty and oriented mostly in one direction. This direction is “with the grain” and in the same direction as the wiping action, which is less efficient. GREEN MONSTER!’s surface is rough and aggressive, and contains many voids (nooks and crannies) for solder paste to be collected, as opposed to pushing and “smearing” on a smooth surface. The result is ultra high efficiency cleaning and less solder-related defects, saving both time and money.
GREEN MONSTER! is not just green in color. No paper fibers are used, thus no trees are cut down to manufacture the fabric. Instead, rayon, which is made from cotton (a cultivated crop), is used for absorbency and strength. It also is environmentally friendly, as it works so well without hazardous solvents and has unsurpassed performance when using lead-free solder paste.
The fiber composition of GREEN MONSTER! is designed to provide the correct amount porosity, allowing maximum utilization of the vacuum system on screen printers. Consequently, solder paste vacuuming and removal from apertures is extremely efficient.
When compared to regular paper roll materials, more air passes through the GREEN MONSTER! roll, proving its higher vacuum efficiency.
White stencil cleaning rolls typically contain weak, short, linty paper fibers. These fibers act as filler between the polyester (static producing) fibers. Additionally, these paper fibers are held in place by a weak hydrogen bond that was produced as the water dried off in the manufacturing process. GREEN MONSTER! uses larger, stronger, virtually lint-free, ESD-safe fibers that are bonded together with a strong cross-linked copolymer.
GREEN MONSTER! XL rolls are 55 to 60' compared to the standard 39' rolls. The XL version fits on most standard DEK and MPM printers. When the XL version of GREEN MONSTER! is used, roll changes are 30 percent less frequent. This equates to significant savings when you consider the hourly cost of a production line and its associated downtime/changeover value. GREEN MONSTER! has been proven to save tens of thousands of dollars during the course of a year at many customer sites.
