Board Carrier - Reusable fiberglass laminated epoxy gloves cover the gold contacts on circuit boards as well as providing a way to suspend the boards below the conveyor during wave solder.
The gloves are "U" shaped channels with a .062" wide base to fit over standard boards and with fingers up to .750" long to fully sheath the edge mounted gold contacts. An extra piece of material is molded to the back edge of the protector allowing the board to lay flush with wave solder machine belts.
Laminated fiberglass epoxy material has a very high resistance to impact, harsh chemicals, and high temperature environments of wave soldering and conformable coating operations.
Gold finger gloves are easily applied in long strip form with sufficient spring tension to cling to the board through many cycles resulting in significant labor and materials savings.
