Techspray Intros Oven Shield for Reflow Ovens
Oven Shield protects oven from flux deposits.
Amarillo, TX — XT-Armor Oven Shield from Techspray is a water-based, environmentally friendly mask coating that protects oven surfaces between scheduled maintenances. It is painted onto cooling zone surfaces, flux sticks to the coating, and then is peeled off — dramatically reducing maintenance time.

The company has been developing and testing XT-Armor Oven Shield for over two years in cooperation with industry leading equipment manufacturers and EMS facilities. Field tests have shown an average reduction of 50 percent in maintenance labor and 25 percent reduction in equipment downtime. It has been successfully tested on the most popular oven and wave equipment from BTU, Heller, JTU, SMT, Speedline and Vitronics-Soltec.

XT-Armor Oven Shield is suitable for closed-loop nitrogen ovens. It is intended for the cooling zones, where residue condensation is the worst. It can be applied to an oven's cooling chamber inner walls and surrounding areas, flux management system chamber walls, flux collection plate, inlet and outlet fan isolator plates. For wave soldering systems, it can be applied to the areas surrounding the spray fluxer unit.

XT-Armor Oven Shield is a light opaque blue when wet, and cures to a translucent dark blue. Coating can be cured at ambient temperatures or accelerated with the oven's heat-up cycle. Over a 4-6 week period, depending of oven usage, the coating changes to a dark teal, which means it is time to peel. Coating and flux residues then peel off easily.

XT-Armor Oven Shield is low odor, non-hazardous, non-flammable and easily washes up with water. It is environmentally friendly with zero VOC, zero GWP, and no halides.
