One Micron Matting Layer Ensures Optimum Delicate Scanning Results

A little trick for scanning small, very shiny components: thanks to an airbrush, the AESUB yellow scanning spray can reach into even the most delicate grooves or indentations. The 1 µm matting layer ensures optimum scanning results.

To improve the measurement of filigree clockworks, delicate jewelry or tiny microchips, the latest scanning spray, AESUB yellow, has been developed for very thin spray coatings.

Using an airbrush gun, the very fine spray is applied evenly to the objects. Due to its low viscosity it reaches even the smallest notches and grooves.  Within a few seconds, the spray dries and forms an extremely thin and homogeneous matting layer with a thickness of 0.5 – 1 µm.

The matting creates high contrast values on the component surface and thus optimum conditions for optical scanning measurements, which can be carried out over a period of about two hours. After four to six hours, the spray coating completely evaporates. The component is clean again and can be reused without any problems.

“Since the scanning spray evaporates completely, the objects can be sprayed directly in the measuring area,” explains Max Liese, AESUB managing director. AESUB yellow contains no pigments and is also free of titanium dioxide, which is hazardous to health.
