AESUB Blue is a self-vanishing scanning spray developed by scanning experts. The spray evaporates within a few hours, meaning that there is no need for cleaning after scanning. Unlike traditional sprays, AESUB Blue does not contain pigments and thus avoids pigment-contamination of sensitive areas, such as laboratories and production sites, equipment and users. You can therefore apply AESUB Blue directly next to your scanning equipment.
- Time and cost saving – no post-cleaning necessary
- Layer thickness of ~8-15 μm
- Free of pigments – spray dust does not damage the sensitive technical scan equipment
- Consistent and homogeneous and dry to the touch coating
- Reference points stick on the coating
- Excellent scannability
AESUB Blue forms a thin layer of white, homogeneous coating resulting in ideal conditions for optical scanning. Independent analysis certifies that AESUB Blue sublimates without leaving any residues on the surface of the scanned object.
AESUB Blue contains propellants and solvents and has been optimized with regard to material compatibility.
However, material compatibility for specific applications cannot be guaranteed. Users should check specific material compatibility before use.
The layer thickness of AESUB Blue ranges between 8 μm and 15 μm depending on the user-specific application.
Apply AESUB Blue from 15-20 cm away. Gently push down the spray button and move the can across the area using even, back and forth strokes. Move at a consistent pace to achieve an even coating.
AESUB Blue is applied “wet”. The solvent vanishes within a few seconds while the coating remains on the surface. The degree of whiteness of the coating still increases for a couple of seconds.
Increase spraying distance or pace in case of drop formation or when coating remains “wet” for too long.
Note that multiple spraying increases layer thickness. The recommended ambient temperature is 21°C.
Vanishing / Sublimation:
The sublimation time of AESUB Blue depends on the following factors:
- Temperature: high ambient temperatures shorten sublimation time. Low ambient temperatures extend sublimation time
- Airflow: ventilation shortens sublimation time
- Surface structure:
- Features such as pockets, holes or grooves within the surface structure extend sublimation time
- Even surface structures shorten sublimation time
- Sublimation starts at exposed areas, such as outer corners or edges
- Material: sublimation time also depends on the material it is applied to
- Layer thickness: higher layer thickness extends sublimation time
Empirical tests show that objects treated with AESUB Blue remain scannable for approximately 0,5-1 hour. Scan-time can be easily extended by re-applying AESUB Blue at individual contours when sublimation starts or by spraying several layers. Increase temperature and / or air ventilation in case you want to accelerate the sublimation process.
- Optimal storage temperature ranges between 18°C and 21°C
- Shelf life of 3 years
- Store at dry conditions with no direct sunlight
