I did see ESD issues years ago when we tried using a plastic stencil to print SMT glue. We measured a huge charge on boards indexed out of the printer. I tried ionizing fans but that didn't help. We now only use metal stencils for printing adhesiv

I need some clarification on washing boards that are no clean

Electronics Forum | Tue Nov 02 08:36:51 EDT 2010 | rgduval

Has anybody else tried using stencils coated with Nano ProTek? I did find that I could reduce my cleaning frequency and squeegee pressure, which should help to increase stencil life, but I'm finding that it seems to wear off quicker than I thought i
