Artwork and Board Cleaning

Contamination Analysis Rollers

The hand roller is smoothly applied to any flat surface, removing any loose, dry contamination. The roller is then cleaned on the Adhesive Pad which traps the contamination, leaving the roller clean for the next surface.

Use High Tack rollers for rigid substrates such as laminate, or boards at soldermask. Use Medium and Low Tack for phototools and inner layers, or our special Thin Film polymer for polyimide or dry-film laminated panels prior to exposure

Use a Silicone-Free roller and pad, where coating or laminating, to ensure adhesion. Don't forget to examine the pad to understand the sources of your contaminants.
