1. Permalex Technology
Permalex ® is a multi-step metallurgical bonding process which produces a smooth, durable metal squeegee with a hard, low-friction edge designed to prevent stencil wear. Permalex Edge Metal Squeegees contain a unique base alloy and our special Permalex coating to provide superior performance.
Common Problems with Rubber Squeegees
Note the scavenging, pumping and deformation to the solder deposit as a result of using rubber blades.
Better Results with Permalex
Permalex blades avoid the common scavenging and deformation to solder paste deposits with a superior design.

Paste Deposits using Permalex Blades
Permalex Edge Metal squeegees eliminate pumping and scavenging improving solder paste deposit quality. The smooth lubricated edge reduces stencil pulling and stretching, improving pad registration and stencil life.

2. 4 Reasons for choose Permalex
1. Increased Line Speed and Efficiency
Better wiping, clean sharp prints mean less time reworking and rejecting boards and less stencil wiping.
Absolutely consistent product quality gives you a reliable source and consistency on various production lines, and on repeat purchases.
2. Reduced Stencil Damage and Squeegee Inspection / Adjustments
Permalex squeegees have a polymer infused lubricant which will not scratch and wear out your stencils. Improper squeegee tip design is a major source of stencil stress and damage.
High Permalex Quality and optimized holder designs insure fast, easy set-up.
3. Innovative Holders, Save Time and Money
Our patent pending sliding paste retainer holders allow you to stock fewer holder assets. You may now stock clean bare replacement stock (which is lower cost). Install different blade lengths quickly and adjust paste retainers and you are ready to go!
All holders are optimized to handle tough variations in board support, paste chemistry and stencil technology.
4. Protect Your Investment
Your squeegee is the most important part of your printer, and your printer is the most important machine affecting the quality of your line.
Quality in your squeegee guarantees quality in your line, and in your end product.
Your time, your product and your people are a valuable resource. Protect all your investments with Permalex technology.
