Manual Cleaning

Dust Removal System (DRS)

Use 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 glass or metal. Use Medium and Low Tack for polyesters or polycarbonates, or our special Thin Film polymer for very thin materials (<125μ).

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