New extreme wash resistant PCB traceability label

As PCB designs become tighter and more complex, increasingly harsh cleaning processes and agents are used in assembly. Brady´s new B-777 polyimide label is designed to stay attached and remain legible to enable traceability throughout multiple harsh wash cycles.Traceability in harsh wash cycles The PCB assembly industry is implementing more aggressive cleaning processes to remove contaminations from tighter and more complex boards. These cleaning processes use higher volumes of water and pressure, more caustic chemicals with a higher PH value, and higher temperatures than typical cleaning systems. Brady´s B-777 has been developed to remain legible and stay attached in these extreme conditions in order to enable full PCB traceability.

New traceability label and ribbon
In combination with the new R-6300 ink ribbon, the new B-777 UltraTemp label performs well in harsh cleaning processes, with and without reflow. The white glossy polyimide B-777 label offers excellent resistance to fluxing and wave solder environments and performs in temperatures up to 300°C. The label is also extremely receptive to small font prints in text or barcode and is available in custom sizes.

Print and apply on-site
The B-777 UltraTemp label for harsh washing processes works seamlessly with the BSP™61 Print and Apply System, the ALF Label Feeder and other auto-apply systems. Together they provide a reliable and flexible on-site traceability solution for high heat applications in manufacturing. Companies who do not print traceability labels on-site, can order pre-printed B-777 labels for their harsh wash PCB traceability solution.
