Cleaning the stencil as it comes from the printer is necessary to remove trace levels of solder paste from the apertures which leads to a clean and consistent next print. Using a handheld ultrasonic transducer and cleaning solution is an inexpensive and space-saving alternative to offline stencil cleaning machines.

KYZEN offers CYBERSOLV C8882 and KYZEN E5631J as a safe alternative to isopropyl alcohol (IPA) used in your handheld ultrasonic transducer stencil cleaner. We have proven compatibility with all equipment manufacturers and offer step-by-step instructions below on how to correctly use these products for a successful cleaning process.

How to Use Handheld Ultrasonic Cleaner with KYZEN Chemistries

Step 1:  The stencil is placed into a frame that’s mounted over a specially designed foam pad that is overlain with disposable paper. A cleaning solvent (CYBERSOLV C8882/KYZEN E5631J) is sprayed onto the under-screen paper.


Step 2:  The stencil is placed into a support frame and lowered over the foam pad that’s overlaid with under-screen paper. A cleaning solvent (CYBERSOLV C8882/KYZEN E5631J) is then sprayed over the stencil apertures.


Step 3:  Move the ultrasonic transducer over the stencil openings. The transducer is typically operated by a footswitch.


Step 4:  Lift the support frame to its raised position to allow top and underside drying.
