Stencil Cleaning Chemicals

Surclean Screenclean 100 (SC100)

Screenclean 100 is a powerful but safe Propylene Glycol Ether blend capable of removing even hardened solder paste deposits and almost all uncured adhesives. It is capable of softening all the Resins and Rosin used in paste and adhesive in seconds. It evaporates completely leaving a clean, dry and grease free surface behind. Screenclean 100 is harmless to most plastics, elastomers, rubbers and industrial finishes, and has good compatibility with the screen adhesives used with mesh backed framed stencils. It is available in aerosols, hand sprayers and bulk packaging. Recommended for manual cleaning operations, particularly between prints. Screenclean 100 is recommended as the Solvent for use on automated Stencil Printers fitted with automatic paper roll type under stencil cleaning systems. Screenclean 100 is non ozone depleting, oxidizes rapidly, and does not form smog or persist in the atmosphere to form pollutants. It is fully bio-degradable and will not bio accumulate. It is low toxicity, low odour, has a high flashpoint for factory safety, and is economical in use.

Surclean Screenclean 200 (SC200)

Screenclean 200 is a powerful aqueous based Stencil cleaner capable of removing both Solder Paste and Adhesive residues. Residues are rinsed away with water.

Surclean Screenclean 400 (SC400)

Screenclean 400 is a synergynistic blend of high performance Propylene Glycol Ethers specifically designed for fast, effective removal of uncured Solder Paste and Adhesive residues from Screens, Stencils and associated tooling. It will also remove residues from misprinted PCB’s. SC400 is Surfactant free and does not degrade in use. SC400 is supplied ready to use and is suitable for a wide range of processes from hand spot cleaning, use as the solvent on automatic Stencil Printers for between print under Stencil cleaning, through to immersion and spray type automatic Stencil Cleaning Machines.
Main Characteristics of Surclean Screenclean 400:
Powerful action with the cleaning power of Solvent Cleaners combined with many of the safety and environmental advantages of Aqueous based materials such as low toxicity, high flash-point and bio-degradeability.
Wide range of process applications from manual localised cleaning and batch type methods, through to fully automated screen cleaning systems. Useable at ambient temperatures. Does not require heating. Can be warm air dried or water rinsed with rinse residue warm air dry after.
Cleans a wide range of residues and will not foam or leave white residues after rinsing
Environmentally safe. SC400 is is free of Surfactants, Inorganic salts and Halogenated Compounds. SC400 is classified as an Ultra low VOC content material and it has an ODP potential of 0. Surclean SC400 is non toxic and 100% Bio-degradeable.
Economical in use. SC400 will still work even when heavily contaminated and can be re-circulated through filtration to extend its life. No chemical additions are needed to maintain its condition.
Safe and pleasant to use. SC400 is very low odour, has low flammability and is safe for operators.
Exceptionally good compatibility with Screen and Stencil attachment adhesives. PH neutral formulation prevents damage to Screen and Stencil Frames.

Surclean Screenclean 500 (SC500)

Screenclean 500 is a high performance Aqueous based cleaner for fast, effective removal of uncured Solder Paste and Adhesive residues from Screens, Stencils and associated tooling. It also has some applications in removal of residues from misprinted PCB’s. Because it is free from Surfactants, it does not degrade in use. Screenclean 500 is available as a concentrate or pre-diluted ready for use, according to the type of cleaning system and the residues to be removed.
