High-Tech Conversions Introduces THE AQUAVATOR™ Stencil Wiping Fabric

Dec 10, 2009

EAST WINDSOR, CT — December 2009 — High-Tech Conversions Inc., a manufacturer of high-quality wiping products and a supplier of consumable items used in cleanrooms, assembly lines, laboratories and manufacturing, introduces THE AQUAVATOR™ stencil wiping fabric, a revolutionary new development within the science of automatic stencil cleaning.

To use THE AQUAVATOR™ fabric, simply add water. There is no more need for the use of hazardous chemicals that are flammable or unhealthy for people and the environment. The stencil wiping fabric contains harmless cleaning agents embedded through the ESD fibers that aggressively clean the stencil. THE AQUAVATOR™ cuts through solder paste with ease.

The unique fiber composition of THE AQUAVATOR™ is conducive to cleaning and collecting the weakened solder paste between the deep crevices of its fibrous network. THE AQUAVATOR™ does not use weak flat paper fibers that tend to push and smear. Instead, it is comprised of thick, coarse multi-oriented fibers that scrape and plow solder paste into the multitude of nooks and crannies that only THE AQUAVATOR™ provides. This product cleans so aggressively that it can actually be used dry. Of course, why not use the embedded cleaning agents for optimum results.

The fiber composition of THE AQUAVATOR™ is designed to provide the highest possible porosity. This allows maximum utilization of the vacuum system on screen printers; hence, solder paste removal from stencil apertures is fierce and extremely efficient.

THE AQUAVATOR™ is the only stencil wiping fabric that is truly ESD. Companies

spend millions making sure everything is ESD safe within the assembly area. The simple action of rolling and unrolling non ESD polyester/paper will cause static build-up on the roll that sits in the machine next to components. Furthermore, the wiping action on a metal stencil that sits in the middle of a nylon mesh also creates static.

White stencil cleaning fabrics typically contain weak short paper fibers. These paper fibers act as filler between static producing polyester fibers. These weak paper fibers are only held in place by weak hydrogen bonds that were produced as water dried off when the paper was made. THE AQUAVATOR™ uses larger, stronger, ESD fibers that are held together with a strong cross linked copolymer. Pictures under a microscope show these fibers to be firmly attached where they intersect.
