When using Epoxy Mold Compound (EMC), what is the proper cleaning procedure to follow to ensure a proper mold cleaning, while avoiding wasting valuable production uptime? How many shots of melamine and/or mold conditioner are needed for a proper cleaning? These are the standard questions that we get asked regularly by new process engineers and operators.
Below is the recommended cleaning procedure:
Step 1: Do 10 shots of Melamine at 175°C for 300s
Step 2: Do 3–5 shots of Mold conditioner at 175°C for 180s
Step 3: Run 2 shots of dummy shots at 175°C for 90s @ 2 shots
Step 4: Resume production as usual
